UPDATE : AV300 – PROGRESS WITH UDRIVE MIGRATION – BUT NOT READY YET

A few more lose ends to tie up before you will be ready to access the UDRIVE, similar to AV301.  But the needed work will be done remotely without disrupting the regular use of the spectrometer. I will post another heads up message when we say it’s ready.  In the interim, your data collection protocol […]

ALERT ! AV301 – NETWORK ERROR

Connectivity to the systems outside NMR lab is disrupted.  I will try to fix it remotely if feasible.  If not, one of us need to get to the system physically to reset the network. Access to the instrument over the weekend might be disrupted owing to this. NMR Facility Manager 4/21/2018

ALERT ! AV301 – PHASE 2 : MIGRATING TO UDRIVE COMPLETE

All existing users will now notice that their Topspin file tree shows the following structure: /home/<UWNetid>/udrive/av301/  as the main data tree in the File Browser. Expanding this will show only one branch : /home/<UWNetid>/udrive/av301/<UWNetid>/nmr Underneath this, you will find all your old files residing. So, remember :  This is your data root directory :  /home/<UWNetid>/udrive/av301 […]

UPDATE ! AV300 – ATMA AND ATMM STABLE

Quick recap :  Many users found that 1H tuning/matching using ATMA or ATMM command did not behave as expected (either a flat wobble curve or no response to turning the tuning/matching capacitors in ATMM). Remedial measures are applied now. I expect the tuning/matching to behave properly for most of the commonly used lock solvents.  Please […]
