Ask the NMR Lab staff for username and password. We will not put these in emails so you will have to find us and ask in person.

Inconsistent Access to NMR data server

(edited - August 26, 2019)

Sarah and I have received reports of inconsistent access to the NMR data server from a number of people.  Users tell us that sometime they can connect to the server. Other times (when they need their data the most) they cannot!  Not to bore you with the details, but access to NMR data relies on credential network connections managed by KU IT.  For reasons we do not understand these connections are erratic.  The Tier 2 team and the IT security office are troubleshooting issues with these connection issues.

What we are asking of the users is that if you cannot access, please send an email to and with the following information

#1) Your KUID

#2) The time at which you are unable to connect

#3) The name of server to which you are trying to connect

#4) Your IP address

#5) The hardware address (aka MAC address) for your computer.
