Though you can't log in directly to a compute node, you can monitor processes via the rsh command.

Service: Exchange

Your ACCC Microsoft Exchange mailbox grows as you create and receive items. To manage the space in your mailbox or on the mail server you are using, you can move old items that are important, but rarely used, to an archive location. This storage process occurs automatically with AutoArchive, but you can customize most of the default settings.

Note: The AutoArchive feature is removed from any Outlook profile that contains a Microsoft Exchange account with retention policies.

Use the Data Usage Monitoring Tool to view your data usage as calculated by ACCC. The Data Usage Monitoring Tool is the recommended method for monitoring your bandwidth usage on the UIC networks. Please note that although ACCC makes every effort to maintain the availability of its machines, the inability to access the monitor is not a valid reason for exceeding your data usage. Consult UIC Wireless and Res-Net Policy for the current data usage limit and other restrictions.

Please contact accounts@uic.edu regarding access to Blackboard for guest affiliates who do not have UIC NetIDs. Once a NetID is generated they can then be added to your Blackboard Learn course.

Upgrading to Windows 10 with Endpoint Protection installed

You can upgrade to Windows 10 with Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.6 MP1 installed. Symantec Endpoint Protection is available on the webstore. You must uninstall earlier versions of Symantec Endpoint Protection. The operating system upgrade stops if it detects an earlier version of Symantec Endpoint Protection.

The following operating system upgrade paths are supported with 12.1.6 MP1 installed:

Service: Basic Email

Thunderbird 3 and Eudora OSE (Penelope Eudora)

The ACCC supports Mozilla's Firefox browser and asks that everyone use it whenever they can instead of Internet Explorer, so it only seems reasonable that we include instructions on how to set up the Thunderbird email client to use mail.uic.edu. Thunderbird is the email client that goes with Firefox. It's easy to use and quite reasonable. A lot like Firefox, in that way. If you're in search of a new email program, check Thunderbird out. It's nice. (And it does RSS.)

1. Open Active Directory Users and Computers.

2. In the console tree, right-click the applicable organizational unit that will contain the new client computer.

3. Click New, and then click Computer.

    

 

4. Type the client computer name, click Next.

Outlook has a spam filter which automatically sends spam emails to a junk folder. Sometimes Outlook can mark legitimate and valid emails as spam thus preventing them from reaching your email inbox. The issue is rather frequent despite the fact that Outlook spam filter is set to “low” by default. Solve this issue by turning off the Outlook spam filter.

The Red Hat Network (RHN) Satellite Server provides software updates and a web based interface to check on the update status of your systems. Everyone that has a UIC account can activate an RHN Satellite account.

Advanced features are also available from the RHN Satellite Server such as configuration profiles, custom RPM channels and automated kickstarts.

File attachments may be added to different places in a Course. For example, to an Item, an Assignment, or a File in a Learning Module. There are two options for adding file attachments:

Installing is easy, but it can go wrong, and fixing installation problems is not necessarily easy.

A UIC network ID, or NetID, is a public identifier used for authentication to many services provided by the ACCC as well as many University of Illinois computing and networking services.  The NetID is not a password and it is not an account itself but it is required in order to access ACCC and University services.

This page explains how to restore both individual files and restoring an entire disk for files that have been backed up using the ACCC network backup client.

Selecting Files to Restore

We keep multiple copies of each file in the ADSM backups. So the first decision that you have to make, after you decide which files or folders you want to restore is whether you want to restore the most recent backup copy or the backup from some past date.

Service: Computer Labs

To view schedules of reservable labs, go to http://accc.uic.edu/lab/all and select the respective lab from the list.

Using Discussion Board in Blackboard is one of the easiest ways to begin fostering on-line collaboration. This tool will help 'engage' students and foster a community within your individual class. Discussion Board can be a very valuable component to a face-to-face course, especially on a commuter campus like UIC. These Discussion Forums provide a venue for 'asynchronous communication'. They provide a public forum and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; they make 'anywhere/anytime' learning a possibility.

Any Content Item, including Course Links, External Links, Folders, Learning Units, Off line Content and Tools can be copied from one folder or Course to another folder or Course. Copying content does not delete the content from the original location unless Delete Item After Copy is selected. Content that is deleted after a copy is moved to the new location and does not exist in the original location any longer.

NOTE: Folders may not be copied from other parts of a Course into a Learning Module.

The SafeAssignment service is run and hosted by the Blackboard company, and not by the UIC Blackboard learning management system (LMS).  While the UIC Blackboard LMS provides a seamless interface to students and instructors for submitting documents for plagiarism analysis, the actual SafeAssign plagiarism analysis is run off-campus, by Blackboard Inc. servers. 

ACCC allows members of the UIC community to purchase sophisticated statistical applications at a significant discount.
