Now it’s official: The c6k-rog was finally switched off from the network at the beginning of November 2021 and is now in a well-deserved retirement. The router, which was the main distributor for all institutes of the RWTH Aachen in the city centre for more than 14 years and routed the entire network, will now be replaced by the two new core routers n7k-carl-1 and n7k-sw23-1.

This means that one router has been replaced by two new, more powerful routers, which will guarantee the IT infrastructure at RWTH Aachen University in the future. This changeover was accompanied by the Network Division of the IT Center which operates the communication infrastructures of RWTH Aachen University. Read the rest of this entry »

December 08, 2021 is an important deadline for all users of the archive and all those who would like to archive data from administration, teaching and university operations in the future.

The contents of the current archive will be migrated to an object storage infrastructure beginning in December. We have already reported on the archive migration and will continue to keep you updated. The archive will therefore inevitably be set to “Read Only” from 08.12.2021. However, you can continue to use the archiving service, because the start of the new DigitalArchive will coincide with this date.

TIM(e) to say goodbye! (Source: Own illustration)

As already mentioned in our post on Bye-Bye TIM TIM has already been taken offline on 24.07.2020.

For many years, our Tivoli Identity Management System (TIM) was a faithful and constant companion in the everyday life of RWTH. We enter the famous, RWTH-wide known identifier with two letters and six digits several times a day into the various systems and pages of the RWTH. But don’t worry, the user name remains, only TIM no longer exists.
