SNF Lab Members:
This morning we converted the Coral database to use new project names and
account numbers. While we have tested this conversion extensively in hopes of
inconveniencing as few of you as possible, there may be a handful of you who
either cannot start Coral or who still see your old style project and account
names. If this happens to you, please send e-mail to coral at snf.stanford.edu
and we will work to fix this problem as quickly as possible.
To make sure that you are not affected at a critical time, you may want to
fire up Coral to test things out in advance of really needing it.
The easiest way to test this out is to begin to make a reservation ... The
popup window includes a pulldown window labelled "Project:".
This should now include your company name, if you are an industrial user, and
a name tht looks like "faculty_name (Project Name)" if you are a Stanford
student, and a name that looks like "University_name (faculty)" if you are a
If you select each of your projects, you should see an account number that
looks like: 1234567-123-ABCDE .... 7-digits, a hyphen, from 1 to 8 more
digits, another hyphen, and 5 capital letters.
If you see the old style 2DPG400, 9VAV789 project or account number, something
needs to be fixed in your records. If you see any of these, please let us
know ... we need to address this quickly because the old style numbers are no
longer valid and will ALL be turned off in a day or two.
Thank you for your support,
