Hostname change for D-PHYS print server
Historically the D-PHYS print server has been accessible under the host name
printer.ethz.ch. As it turns out, this name violates ID’s DNS rules and they have requested we change it. We therefore have modified all references pointing to
printer.ethz.ch to now address
printer.phys.ethz.ch. We have incorporated some technical solutions that redirect many connections automatically, and also our managed workstations have been migrated, but there might be individual configurations that need manual intervention. So if printing stops working after Wednesday evening, you might have to change the print server address — see our printing documentation.
If you are used to typing just
printer instead of the now longer full host name, you may want to change to domain search list on your computer, too. For details about how to do this, see our documentation in the wiki for Windows and for Linux.
