Interactive Services during CERNVM Rundown

  Miguel Marquina CN/DCI

As you almost certainly already know, CERNVM services will stop on 30 June 1996 at midnight. As part of the rundown process, we have made the following plans in connection with the interactive services.

Actions with immediate effect

Several applications, including MAIL, XFIND, XNEWS, and PHONE, will be modified so that when they are started on CERNVM they will display an informative message on the alternative services which are available.

Actions on June 1st

Recommended Replacements for these Applications

If you have further questions

Please remember that all CERNVM services will stop on 30 June 1996. For several months after that date, mail sent to user@cernvm.cern.ch will be forwarded, as far as possible, to the user concerned, by a subrogate mail forwarding system. We ask you to inform your external e-mail correspondents of your new e-mail address, preferably using the recommended form Firstname.Lastname@cern.ch.

If you have further questions about these plans or if they cause you serious problems, please contact the User Consultancy Office (User.Support@cern.ch, phone 4952).
