If our records are in error, you may complete an EECS Account Request Form and submit it at 378 Cory before Dec 22 Or you can just wait until Jan 19, 2015 when we will have newer enrollment records, and request your account again. Your files will still be there.
For class accounts ("cs61a-aa", "ee122-aa", etc), the files will be saved for 1-2 weeks, archived to tape and deleted. Class account logins are reassigned to new students next semester. For named accounts ("jdoe", 'cs199-aa', etc), the files will be saved for about a month after the start of the next semester, and the files will be archived to tape before they are deleted. If the student is eligible again for an account next semester, the account can be renewed. While an account is "expired", you will still have limited access to it: - Email will no longer be stored for the account, but it will be forwarded to you if you left a forwarding address in your UNIX .forward file. You can copy a .procmailrc file to your account using 'sftp'. - If you login to your expired UNIX account using an 'ssh' program (such as Putty on Windows), your grades will be displayed from the local grading database ('glookup'). - If you login to your UNIX account using an 'scp' or 'sftp' program (such as WinSCP on Windows), you will be able to copy your files from the account.
Email sent to an expired account can only be forwarded to another system - it will not be saved here. You can also have your own automated reply that tells the sender about your new email address. If you do not set this up, the senders will receive an automated reply telling them that the email address is no longer valid. Email will be forwarded for up to one year after a named account expires. These features are set in a .procmailrc file in your UNIX home directory. You can create or edit the file using a text editor (vi, emacs) when logged into your UNIX account. You can also copy a .procmailrc into an expired account using 'sftp' (see What happens to the files in an expired account?). Each rule in .procmailrc starts with a ":0" line. The "c" in :0c: says to continue to the next rule after processing this one. To enable email forwarding, add a rule like this at the beginning of the rules in .procmailrc: :0c: ! firstname.lastname@example.org To enable an auto-reply that is sent in response to incoming email, add this rule at the beginning of the rules in .procmailrc: :0c: * !^From[: ].*$LOGNAME | /usr/bin/vacation $LOGNAME For auto-replies, you also need to create a message in a file called .vacation.msg and initialize the UNIX "vacation" program. For example: echo "My new email address is email@example.com." > ~/.vacation.msg vacation -I You can use a editor to create a better message in the .vacation.msg file. See "man vacation" on a UNIX system for more options.
- BEFORE your account expires, you can copy your files from your Windows and UNIX home directories by transferring them to a USB memory stick. You could also email them to yourself or use a file transfer program. See http://inst.eecs.berkeley.edu/cgi-bin/pub.cgi?file=file-transfer.help. On UNIX, you can login and bundle the files into a single compressed file that is easier to copy or email to yourself elsewhere. Here is an easy way to do that from one of our UNIX accounts: % cd # goes to your home directory % zip -9ryq /tmp/$USER.zip . # makes a copy in the local /tmp dir You could copy the /tmp/$USER.zip file somewhere else and unzip it there. You can send this file to yourself as an email with an attached Zip file containing all your files, for example: % mutt -a /tmp/$USER.zip firstname.lastname@example.org < /dev/null # mails it % rm /tmp/$USER # deletes it - AFTER your account expires, you will not be able to copy the Windows files. - AFTER your account expires, you will be able to copy the UNIX files over the net until June 3 by using an 'scp' or 'sftp' program (such as WinSCP on Windows) to login from another computer. - BEFORE and AFTER your account expires (as long as the account still exists), you can download email from imail.eecs.berkeley.edu, the Instructional IMAP server. See http://inst.eecs.berkeley.edu/connecting.html#email. AFTER your account expires, no new email is accepted here. - The files in an expired class account are removed from our disk a week or two after the end of the semester. The files for an expired named account remain on the disk until about 1 month into the next semester. For more information, please see - How Do I Manage Email? - How Do I Copy Files Between Computers?
The Registrar posts grades at http://bearfacts.berkeley.edu. If your class used the EECS Instructional grading software ('submit' and 'glookup'), you can still see the 'glookup' results after the account has expired. There are 2 ways: 1) Login at the WebAcct site: http://inst.eecs.berkeley.edu/webacct/. Select "List local grades - glookup". 2) Login to your expired UNIX account on cory.eecs.berkeley.edu using an 'ssh' program (such as Putty on Windows). Note to Putty users: in the Putty configuration window, change the "Close Window on Exit" setting to "Never" to prevent Putty from closing before the information is displayed. Your grades will be displayed for any EECS classes that use a local grading database ('glookup') this semester. This lasts for 1-2 weeks after the account has expired.
All Fall 2014 EECS E-Academy accounts will expire at 9am on Dec 22, 2014. The EECS e-Academy site will be unavailable from Dec 22, 2014 - Jan 19, 2015. Students who are eligible after Jan 19, 2015 can request or renew an E-Academy account by following the instructions on http://msdnaa.eecs.berkeley.edu/.
