Academic Mainframe Services to be Terminated

By Dr. Philip Baczewski, Associate Director of Academic Computing

The following information may be very important if you have an active Academic Mainframe account. This information applies only to Academic Mainframe Services such as CMS and MVS/batch and NOT to Administrative Mainframe Services such as SIMS or NOBIS.

As announced in May of 2002, Academic Mainframe Services will be terminated for individual account holders on May 31, 2003.  For additional information, please review the following articles from Benchmarks Online:

If you have Academic Mainframe program or data files that you wish to
preserve, you will need to download them from CMS before May 31, 2003.  The following articles will assist you in downloading mainframe files:

If you no longer use your mainframe account and do not need your files,
then no further action is required on your part.  Otherwise, if you haven't
done so, please take action now to begin the download process.  ACS staff will be glad to consult with you if you need additional help.  Please
contact me via e-mail if you have questions or require consultation
