Rollout of Sassafras K2

On Tuesday 8th September, we will begin rollout to the Staff Desktop Service of the Sassafras client.

This is required to allow the university to comply with licensing terms for some of our enterprise wide software.

HOW WILL THE WORKS AFFECT ME?
The installation will occur silently with no reboot required. The software has minimal overheads, so this addition shouldn’t affect the normal operation of machine.

TIMESCALE?
The staged rollout will occur between Tuesday 8th September and Monday 15th September. Any machine not switched on during this time will receive the software when next used. Sassafras is included in the latest staff image, so newly deployed machines will already have the package.

CAN I GET MORE INFORMATION AND HELP?
If you have further questions or queries please contact IT Services via it.services@lboro.ac.uk or telephone 01509 222333.
