BHRIC Virtual Desktops

[01:00 10/02/2021] The issue has been resolved. The vendor has corrected the issue with their software and everything is working as expected. Administrators will need to contact OIT for instructions to connect to the administrative interface as a configuration setting was changed during the repair.
[21:00 10/01/2021] Certain Virtual Desktops on the BHRIC may not be accessible due to a failure of a backend service. We are working with the vendor to resolve the issue and will update this post regularly. If you experience an issue accessing your virtual desktop please report the problem to your IT support team. They will be able to work with OIT to bring the virtual desktop online.
