During the Tuesday, July 14th maintenance period, maintenance work will occur, starting at 5:30 PM and being completed before midnight. The following will occur:
  • Network printing services: printing accounting software will be upgraded, which will take about an hour. During times when the printing servers are down, print jobs will be rejected with an error message. During other times in the upgrade, print jobs will be held, then printed later. Staff and students should not reprint if their print job(s) isn't printed immediately unless they receive an error indicating that their print job couldn't be queued. (This work was deferred during the June and July maintenance windows.)
  • University web site: www.ru.ac.za and my.ru.ac.za may move to a new web server. This work is initiated by the Web Unit and queries should be directed to them.
This work is being undertaken during a minor maintenance period. If there a compelling reason why it should not go ahead as planned, please contact support@ru.ac.za before 1PM on Tuesday 14th July. More information about maintenance windows and maintenance periods.
