ITS is beginning a series of infrastructure enhancements that may require updating end-of-life (EOL) operating systems on devices that are connected to the network.
ITS announced this past spring and throughout the summer that Windows XP and Mac OS 10.7 were end of life and would no longer be supported. Older operating systems are not maintained by the vendor and are increasingly difficult to operate in our environment. We will offer possible workarounds where these exist, but ITS cannot avoid important maintenance in deference to devices with unsupported operating systems. Unfortunately, such equipment will be increasingly unable to utilize network services over time.
We will be happy to explore options with you. Please do not hesitate to contact us for information and assistance.
