In polarized proton operation, the RHIC performance is limited by the head-on beam-beam effect. To overcome these limitations two electron lenses were installed and are under commissioning. One lens uses a newly manufactured superconducting solenoid, in the other lens the spare superconducting solenoid of the BNL Electron Beam Ion Source is installed to allow for propagation of the electron beam. (This spare magnet will be replaced by the same type of superconducting magnet that is also used in the other lens during the 2013 shut-down.) We give an overview of the commissioning configuration of both lenses, and report on first results in commissioning the hardware and electron beam. We also report on lattice modifications needed to adjust the phase advance between the beam-beam interactions and the electron lenses, as well as upgrades to the proton instrumentation for the commissioning.

NSLS-II is a third generation 3GeV light source that is under-construction at the Brookhaven National Laboratory. The 30-DBA-cell storage ring will provide micron size beam resulting from the 1nm emittance. Recently the last magnet was received and the completion of girder installation in the tunnel is foreseeable in a few months. In this paper we will briefly review the physics considerations for the magnet specifications, the major field quality related issues that arose during the fabrication process. Our emphasis will be on the statistical analysis of the magnet measurement results and comparison with the design tolerances.
