Increase in Phishing Emails - 02/20/17 - Ongoing
Period: 2/3/17 - Present
"Please be aware that UNM has received many phishing messages this week, and in general there has been an increase in these types of messages throughout higher education. A UNM News Minute article will be forthcoming with more details.
As always, remember that UNM IT will NEVER ask you for your password in an email. NEVER click on any link in an email that asks for your confidential information, or you could be providing someone with unintended access to your UNM account."
NetID Account closure notices are being sent out Tomorrow to 6579 former Students
Period: 2/15/17 - Present
Your UNM NetID will be locked Thursday, February 23, 2017
Your UNM NetID has been marked for deletion because you are listed as not having completed at least one credit hour in the last calendar year or you were admitted to UNM but did not register for classes by the start of the semester. Your UNM NetID will be locked as of Thursday, February 23, 2017 and be deleted 53 days later if no changes occur.
Please review the following information about transitioning away from using your UNM NetID:
You should have access this week with your current non-expired password.
You can continue to access your account until Thursday, February 23, 2017 with your current password. Password expiration is still in effect during the 60-day deletion cycle. You can check when your password expires by going to netid.unm.edu and at the bottom of the page click the "When does my password expire" button and follow the instructions. If your password has expired or is due to expire before February 23rd, be sure to update it at netid.unm.edu.
Do you want people to know your UNM email address is closing (and how to contact you)?
Set up an auto-reply (vacation) message to let people know the account is closing. The message can include alternate contact information if you choose. While logged into lobomail.unm.edu, go to the "Office 365 settings" drop-down menu on the upper right side of the interface (under the cog icon). Choose "Automatic Replies" from the menu. Follow the instructions and click the "Save" link in the upper left side of the page to finalize your action. Test the reply is working by sending the account email from another source.
Do you have a copy of your unofficial transcript?
You might want to print out a copy of your unofficial transcript from LoboWeb before you lose your NetID access. Once your account is deleted, if you need a copy of your transcript, you will need to contact the Records office directly. For more information, see https://registrar.unm.edu/transcripts/.
Do you need to save any files or emails?
Be sure to move any emails and files from your account that you want to keep. The contents of the entire account will be deleted by the 60th day of the deletion cycle. Important note: Due to storage limitations, IT only keeps 30 days of backup files.
Is your UNM email address, your login name for any external sites?
If you use your UNM email address as your login name on any external sites such as Facebook, be sure to change it on the site before your account gets locked.
Is your UNM email address a recovery address on any external sites?
If your UNM email address is a recovery email address on any external sites such as Google or your bank, be sure to update those site settings with a new email address.
Do you make regular payments using LoboWeb?
Please check with the Bursar’s office at 505) 277-5363 to find out alternative methods to make your payments once your account has been locked and deleted. Their website is http://bursar.unm.edu/.
Do you still want to take classes at UNM?
If you would like to take classes, you will need to be re-admitted to UNM first. You can contact Admissions at 277-8900 or 1-800-CALL-UNM. The website is http://www.unm.edu/apply/. If you are re-admitted during the initial 50 days, the marked for deletion date on your NetID will automatically be removed and the account deletion cycle stopped.
If you were admitted for this semester but did not register, you need to request a semester change when you contact Admissions.
Are UNM Alumni eligible for NetIDs?
At this time, UNM Alumni are not eligible for NetIDs. The extra one-year account eligibility is based on the last class taken and not on your graduation date.
Will you be able to get your UNM NetID back in the future?
If you return to UNM in some capacity in the future, you may be able to request your old NetID back. Contact UNM IT directly once your Banner record is active to request your UNM NetID be re-activated.
Can I have more time to make other email arrangements?
If you feel this closure is in error or need a little extra time to make other email arrangements, please submit a service request at help.unm.edu. In the description field, include the reason why you think this closure is in error or why you need some extra time. Be sure to include a phone number in case we need to contact you about your request.

UNM IT Paging Services to End 01/31/17
Period: 1/5/17 - 2/28/17
Effective 01/31/17, UNM IT will no longer offer paging services. Any action required of paging customers will depend on whether they are engaged in clinical practice.
Clinical Practice Departments and Staff:
If you are engaged in clinical practice and carrying a pager, you should have already received notification from UH Communications asking you to swap your pager. The UH Communications pager transition and swap will take care of your transition to a new vendor and service.
Important - if you have not yet swapped and/or returned your pager, please do so immediately by contacting UH Communications. All unreturned pagers will incur a charge of $75 per pager.
Non-Clinical Departments and Staff:
If you are not engaged in clinical practice (ex: main campus departments), you must take action on or before 01/30/17. You have a choice in how to proceed:
- Discontinue paging services: please contact UNM IT at 277-5757 or unm.edu to return your pager and disconnect service. All unreturned pagers will incur a charge of $75 per pager.
- Continue paging services: please contact the current paging services vendor, Contact Wireless, to continue your existing paging service. Please see FastInfo 7625 (https://unm.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/7625) for information on how to do this. New rates may apply.
If you do not complete either 1 or 2 above, UNM IT will disconnect your paging services on 01/31/17 and charge you $75 for each unreturned pager.
It is not our desire to leave any department without necessary service. If your department has special circumstances, please contact TJ Martinez (email@example.com or 277-0960) or Kirsten Martinez (firstname.lastname@example.org or 277-0147).

REMINDER: As of November 1st, 2016 UNM IT is no longer provisioning LoboMail accounts for new HSC users.

DNS Routing Change - Outage- 2/21/2017 5:00 AM to 6:00 AM
Period: 2/21/17 5:00 am - 2/21/17 6:00 am
In order to retire old equipment, IT needs to reconfigure the routing for DNS, DHCP, and NTP services currently offered to internal and external network clients. This change requires moving the firewall policy from one firewall to another, along with the routes and gateways for these networks.
There will potentially be an outage as IT staff change over to the secondary set of servers that will last 5 to 10 minutes. An exception to this is for clients who have manually set their DNS servers on their servers and workstations, as opposed to clients who receive the data via DHCP. They will experience an outage until that particular server is restored. To reduce the risk of DNS record issues, IT will halt DNS record creation from 2/21/17 at 5am to close of business on 2/22/17.
