CoE Domains available for UMail accounts

CADE intends to shut down our e-mail servers for POP and IMAP in August but want to give you all time to move your mail to another account and set up the appropriate aliases with uMail.

In preparation for phasing out the CoE e-mail servers, we have worked with UIT and the uMail team to make College domains available for all CoE faculty, staff and student e-mail addresses.
We can modify your uMail alias (typcically some form of your first, middle and last names and/or initials; Fac/Staff have more leeway than do students) and set your account with any of the following domains:

  • @bioen.utah.edu
  • @che.utah.edu
  • @civil.utah.edu
  • @coe.utah.edu
  • @ece.utah.edu
  • @eng.utah.edu
  • @mech.utah.edu
  • @mep.utah.edu
  • @mse.utah.edu

If you’re interested, send an e-mail to support@coe.utah.edu and give us the following information: Full name, uNID, desired alias, which CoE Domain extension you would like and if you’d like the new one set as the Primary alias/Reply-To, or leave it as currently set.

As part of this process, you may set or change your account via the uNID Tools page: https://unid.utah.edu/

MATLAB Research License Server

As announced earlier this month, the University of Utah has obtained a campus wide site license for MATLAB, Simulink, and 48 additional toolboxes.
This new campus wide license is being administered by the Office of Software Licensing (software.utah.edu).

If you use Matlab for research, you need to purchase Matlab through OSL (see link below) or you may use our research license server for Matlab that supports UP TO 2016A. There is no cost to use our server as the license has been paid for already.

One may download Matlab at https://uofu.box.com/v/mathworks for use on our Matlab Research license.

It you need anything newer than Matlab 2016A or different toolboxes, you must buy from OSL, otherwise download for free from: https://uofu.box.com/v/mathworks

The College will continue to maintain MATLAB Academic Teaching/Classroom licenses for the student computing facilities (CADE, Engman, MGK Mac and CS Undergrad labs, as well as Mech’s LaLonde Computer Center[MEK 0670]).

Students are able to purchase a single license through OSL which they can use on their personal or university owned computer. With this license they are allowed to use MATLAB for both classroom and academic research on 2 machines. The cost for the student license is $20 and will cover MATLAB, Simulink, and the 48 additional toolboxes.

Faculty and staff can either purchase a single license from OSL for $90 which they use on either personal or university computers (2 max.) or they can purchase concurrent licenses which can be used on multiple computers within a lab/research team.

Purchase Matlab here: https://software-store.utah.edu/uofu/misc/osl/detail.shop?productId=2499

More information can be found on the OSL website http://software.utah.edu/news/mathworks.php
And their FAQ page: http://software.utah.edu/faq/license/mwc/index.php

If you have specific questions on how the new license works, running concurrent licenses, etc. not found on the FAQ page, please contact the Office of Software Licensing (1.801.581.4000, software@utah.edu or bill.lutz@utah.edu).

Power-outage killed compute2

Power to most of lower campus went out earlier today, and we’re sorry to report that compute2 failed to come back online.

We’re sorry for the inconvenience and hope to have a replacement in the not too distant future.

Shutdown of CADE FTP Server – 05.23.2016

On Monday, May 23rd, we will be discontinuing CADE’s FTP service due to lack of use and availability of secure alternatives.

For those still using FTP, we recommend using services like Box, Dropbox, OneDrive or GoogleDrive in place of FTP.

If this poses a major problem for anyone, please email us to further discuss this.
