Mergent IntellectUpdate 17 April 204:21:30:  NC LIVE received reports of libraries having issues accessing Mergent’s First Research industry reports within the Mergent Intellect interface from off-campus/outside of the library.  The vendor implemented several new servers which impacted the way First Research was being proxied. After talking with Mergent’s technical support staff, NC LIVE staff identified several changes that needed to be made to proxy configurations. These changes have been to the local Wingnet services.
 
NC LIVE has received reports of a problem occurring with the use of the Mergent Intellect database.
Users are able to authenticate and search within Mergent Intellect. However, while viewing results, some users are seeing a “Session Expired” message, and are prompted to login again.
NC LIVE staff have reported this problem to Mergent technical support and are working with them to identify a resolution.
