SCCM Site Boundary Reconfiguration

NCSU sysnews - 53 min 6 sec ago
WE are going to reconfigure the Site Boundaries in SCCM. Currently they are 0.0.0.0-255.255.255.254. We want to change them to align them to the same site boundaries in AD. So they would be:

10.0.0.0-10.255.255.255

152.1.0.0-152.1.255.255

152.14.0.0-152.14.255.255

152.7.0.0-152.7.255.255

The reason the site boundaries were so big was in SCCM 2007 to accommodate running of task sequences off campus. In 2007 you could only run a task sequence on the intranet, so the computer had to be within your Site Boundaries. In SCCM 2012 you can specifically assign task sequences to run outside of your boundaries. This change will have no affect on computers end users, admins, or the ability to manage machines.

The end user and sysadmins will see now change

@math.ncsu.edu mail delivery modification

NCSU sysnews - 2 hours 31 min ago
Due to configuration issues, the math.ncsu.edu domain needs to be modified inside of Google before we can start our Postini transition. We are under an extreme time sensitive deadline and this change needs to happen this afternoon (before close of business).

We do not expect customers will notice a difference but there is always the possibility that something unplanned may happen - e.g. rejected mail. We wanted to inform customers of the possibility, but we expect it to go smoothly and transparently.

FIN: Chartfield Request System Enhancements now available

NCSU sysnews - 4 hours 17 min ago
--- FOLLOWUP POST: 2015-04-21 10:43:22 ---

Enhancements have been made to the Financial Chartfield Request System as follows:

_ Copy Feature available for Segment requests. The Copy link has been added to the Header page (near the top, next to the Delete link). To copy the request, click on the Copy link and a secondary page will appear. The New Chartfield Request ID and Date fields will auto-populate with default values but can be changed if desired. Click the OK button to create the new request or the Cancel button to return to the old request. Most of the fields will copy, but you need to review and make any necessary additions/changes prior to submitting the request for approvals. The new request will follow the standard established workflow path.

_ Ability to add Ad Hoc Approvers/Reviewers to workflow. The initiator or approver can insert additional approvers or reviewers AFTER the workflow has been established. An Ad Hoc Approver or Reviewer can be inserted at any point within the workflow prior to the Central Office Processor level by clicking on the '+' icon in the approval path on the Approval page. A secondary page will appear and you can enter the User ID of the Ad Hoc Approver/Reviewer you want to add and select the appropriate type. Click the Insert button to insert the Approver/Reviewer or the Cancel button to return to the request. If you inserted an Ad Hoc Approver/Reviewer, you must click the 'Save Workflow Changes' button to save the changes prior to Submitting the request for approvals. An email will be generated when the request reaches the Ad Hoc Approver/Reviewer level. A worklist item (Work Item = Approval Routing) will appear on the Ad Hoc Approver worklist and action is required for the request to continue in the workflow process. No worklist item will appear on the Ad Hoc Reviewer worklist and NO action is required for the request to continue in the workflow process.

_ Request Status field has been added to Search Criteria

Additional information will be communicated to Campus soon as it relates to each Central Office (based on the Fund Group). If you have questions, please contact the appropriate Central Office.
