OIT performs routine maintenance on servers and systems every Sunday from 8 a.m. to noon. Many IT services may be offline intermittently during this time. Network access and computing resources availability (Banner, E-Learning, Exchange server, etc.) may also be affected. Since this is a low-usage period, fewer UA customers will be impacted. For questions, contact the IT Service Desk at (205) 348-5555 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
New Secure Wireless Network
September 7, 2012 – The Office of Information Technology (OIT) is pleased to announce a new secure wireless network for Faculty & Staff. In order to connect to UA-WPA2, you will need to install XpressConnect on your device by visiting: http://wpa2setup.ua.edu/CloudPath/. As part of the installation process, you will be required to enter your myBama ID and password.
UA-WPA2 provides secure wireless communications through the use of WPA2 Enterprise and will replace the pre-shared key SSID rolled out as an interim solution last year (PSK). Starting in October 2012, UA-WPA2 will replace UA Public Wireless for all Faculty and Staff.
