Michigan Tech IT has completed the following upgrades this summer. Please take a look. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com or call (906) 487-1111.
Information Technology is making improvements to printing at Michigan Tech. These improvements include:
- Retiring old print release stations—The old stations will be removed and print jobs will be released by a card reader directly at the printer.
- Upgrade of our PaperCut services to PaperCut Multi-Function (MF)—This will allow for printing and copy accounting for both black/white and color printers.
- Google Cloud printing—You will have the ability to print from your Apple or Android smartphone or tablet wirelessly through Google Cloud Print.
Michigan Tech IT is working to bring improvements to the campus MultiDrive (M:) storage system. The new MultiDrive DFS system replaces an aging infrastructure that has been in use for the last few years. Several areas on campus have been using the new system as part of a staged roll-out. IT will be changing the remainder of campus workstations to connect to the new system on Wednesday, June 7.
There is no required action or change in behavior for standard, on-domain workstations. The new MultiDrive DFS system will connect to M: upon login. Note that the Admin domain is not affected by this change.
Mac users with the self service app can log into self service and download the Multidrive app from the Core Applications tab. Mac users without the self service app can connect using the MacOS instructions.
As part of this change, the “Mac multidrive mounter” utility is being deprecated and will stop working at a future date.
If you have any questions about the new Multidrive system, please contact IT help at 906-487-1111 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
