Support and Support Information

We'll help you to help yourself. Much information about our computing environment can be found in this wiki.

Primary source of information: http://computing.ee.ethz.ch

If you have a question that is not answered on the Computing website:

Printing

You can configure most printers at D-ITET yourself.

You can find additional information here on Computing: http://computing.ee.ethz.ch/Printing/VPPPrinting/Windows/Setup

Email

Vacation Message in Email

Start a browser and open the following website: https://apps.ee.ethz.ch/cligui

After logon, you will find a link where you can set a vacation message.

Before you leave the office, try sending yourself an email from an external email address to ensure the vacation message works.

If you are using the Email Services provided by ID (Exchange), you can set the out-of-office message directly in Outlook or in the Microsoft Outlook Web Access, accessible via https://mail.ethz.ch/exchange

After logging in, click on "Options" on the left side to set the vacation message.

Software

Software cannot be installed by yourself. Please visit https://computing.ee.ethz.ch/Workstations/Windows7/SoftwareInstallation for more information.

Data

Personal Data

You should save your personal data (created files) to a folder on the H: drive which is secured by a nightly backup. We can also restore data from a previous day if you delete something accidentally. For a reqeust, send an email to support@ee.ethz.ch

Your home drive contains profile data. /!\ Therefore, do not delete these folders "to make space" or "clean up a bit".

Local Temporary Data

On every Windows host, there is a folder called C:\Scratch (the equivalent folder on a Linux box would be /scratch). We recommend to use this folder for processing large amounts of computing data. This will also result in a performance boost because you will not read and write data via the network.

Please be aware that C:\Scratch is not secured by a backup. If the harddisc crashes, your data will be lost.
