KI ELN maintenance

KI ELN is run by the central IT department in accordance with KI requirements for IT security. Regular backups, as often as once every hour, are set up for the KI ELN servers.

We are continuously removing inactive ELN licenses.

ELN accounts of users that have not logged into ELN for more than 1.5 years are closed.

All experiments are saved into the database and no information is lost.

The group leader and the group members that have access to the projects under which the inactive users have saved their experiments will still be able to access the experiments of the users that are removed.

To carry out maintenance of the servers and other components, or when necessary to upgrade the system, a maintenance window has been scheduled for Thursdays between 7 pm - 10 pm.

Before any major maintenance and upgrades all KI ELN users will be notified by email. Information will be also posted on this page.

If an upgrade fails, we have to revert to the earlier version of the software. Content and edits created in between the upgrade and the reversion may be lost. You are therefore requested to not use KI ELN during the maintenance window when notified of an upgrade.

Upgrade to version 2021 SP1

KI ELN was upgraded to version 2021 SP1 on Thursday the 7th of October between 7pm and 10pm

Please note that after the upgrade you will have to install version 2021 SP1 of the Biovia Desktop Connector.
