Microsoft Windows Server 2003 End of Life 14 July 2015

As you may be aware Microsoft Windows Server 2003 will be end of life on the 14 July 2015. This means that any servers running this operating system after this date will not be supported and not receive security updates. This is likely to result in these servers getting compromised. It is important that these servers are upgraded to at least Windows Server 2008 as soon as possible.

What did you want? - “More storage” When are you getting it? - “Now! ”

Good news from Information Services Division. All UCL staff and students will be upgraded to 50GB of personal storage on the network. Plenty for all your data needs for the near future and a vast increase from what most of you currently have. With more than 40,000 accounts to upgrade, migration to the new filestore will take a while; we will be migrating groups of users together at a time.
