RUB rebuilds IT infrastructure

Functionalities are put into operation according to priority

As a first step, the most important functionalities for student administration as well as for personnel and financial management are to be put back into operation. Capacities for digital teaching systems are being continuously expanded.

Logging in at computers with new password

From 2 June, users who use their old password to log in at their computer in the RUB network might receive an error message. They must instead use the new password that they have set for their RUB LoginID. Please note: Logging in and out with the new password may take longer than usual.

This is because the new Active Directory – a central component of the Windows-based network – will be activated on 2 June, which will, among other things, allow access to the RUB network drives.
