The Curative Analysis team in IT is tasked with finding the causes of significant IT issues that affect campus. In this news update, we draw your attention to some of the problems being investigated or issues handled recently.

ShareLink on Catalina: The current ShareLink software for macOS cannot run on macOS Catalina. There is an updated piece of software, and IT staff have created a new installation package for the Mac.  IT staff will push the update to all WCU-owned computers running ShareLink, this summer.

Personal Services Access: Personal Services access has been a known issue for some time in some K-12 schools, hospitals, and other government stations. Our Networking staff are currently working with the UNC System Office to explore options that could result in a solution that would fix this issue for anyone trying to connect from a military or similarly secured network.

Wi-Fi on Lab Computers:  The Apple iMac and Dell All-in-One lab computers try to connect to wi-fi, even when there is a wired connection. The Networking and Desktop Management teams are currently working together to remotely disable the wireless cards on those devices and plan to test the solution within the next two weeks.
