ESET Endpoint Protection Upgrade: Tuesday, 07-May-2019 @ 10:00 AM

On Tuesday, 07-May-2019, beginning at 10:00 AM, we will begin upgrading the ESET Endpoint Protection software on CLASSE-managed Windows computers. This upgrade should be transparent, except that you will be prompted to reboot your computer to complete the update. Please reboot at your convenience.

AppsAnywhere CloudPaging Player Update: Tuesday, 14-May-2019 @ 10:00 AM

Next Tuesday, 14-May-2019, beginning at 10:00 AM, the AppsAnywhere CloudPaging Player will be updated on CLASSE-managed Windows computers. For this update, any open cloudpaged (AppsAnywhere) applications will be closed, and you will be prompted to reboot. Please submit a ServiceRequest with any questions or concerns.

If you frequently ssh into linux systems to launch remote X applications and find that your sessions hang when you type "exit" or "logout" at the end of your session, we recommend adding the following to your ~/.bashrc file.
 # Prevent dbus-daemon from hanging logout from ssh sessions
 if [ -z "$DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS" ] && [ -n "$DISPLAY" ]; then
  ## if not found, launch a new one detached from stdin
  eval $(dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session </dev/null)
Please note that this should go within the block that only gets executed on interactive logins:
if [ "$PS1" ]; then
For more on our default and recommended linux login scripts, please see UnixLoginScripts .

AppsAnywhere Update Failed Message

Recently, some users on CLASSE-managed Windows systems have seen an AppsAnywhere window that says "AppsAnywhere Update Failed". This notification is harmless and can be dismissed. We are consulting with the vendor to determine the cause of the message.

General network and server maintenance will occur every Tuesday from 12:00 noon to 2:00 PM. The CLASSE-IT group will always announce any expected disruptions in our NewsLetter and via CLASSE-IT-NEWS-L, but with the size and complexity of our network there is always the potential for something to go wrong. We will do our best to contain all network maintenance and planned outages to Tuesdays from 12:00 noon to 2:00 PM.

Unless other arrangements have been made, CLASSE-managed Windows systems may be updated and rebooted on Tuesday morning at 2:00 AM, so please avoid critical or lengthy operations at that time. For more details, please see SystemExpectations.
