We have split the University email address book so that staff and student names are listed separately. This is especially important if you regularly communicate with a mixture of staff and students. It will make our email communication more secure.
In future, we will all need to consult two address books rather than one.
DNS/DHCP migration: Advice for staff who use RDP
IP address ranges SHOULD NOT change. As an extra precaution, however, we suggest the advice below is followed by any staff who make use of Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) to access a remote machine using its IP address. Please can technical staff pass this message onto colleagues who may be using RDP?
Please ask them to make a note of their machine's hostname, before the migration starts. If they know the remote hostname, they will be able to use this instead of IP address to use RDP to connect remotely.
To find out how to capture hostname or for general advice or support about the migration, please email: nrsp at warwick dot ac dot uk.

VPN upgrade, Wed 17th June 2020, between 07:00 and 08:00
On Wednesday 17th June 2020, between 07:00 and 08:00, we are upgrading the VPN service. This is a standard upgrade to the Cisco AnyConnect Client* which includes security enhancements. If you connect to the VPN before or during the upgrade, your connection will continue to run on the old client. After the upgrade, you may find that the first time you connect it takes slightly longer to join as the AnyConnect Client upgrades on your system.
During the change window, if you attempt to connect to the VPN and it fails, or you are disconnected, please try connecting again. If after a few attempts you are still unable to connect, or you experience any other problems, please feel free to contact the helpdesk: https://warwick.ac.uk/helpdesk.
*Cisco AnyConnect will upgrade from 4.6.04054 to 4.8.03052.
