Active Directory Upgrade: Enhanced Schedule

ITS is moving the Admin server’s Novell Netware to Active Directory cutover to Wednesday July 20 - Thursday July 21. We will use this period for further testing of our procedures and supporting materials. You can expect to receive detailed communications on what you will see (and, in some cases, what you need to do) to complete your upgrade on Thursday July 21.

The general procedure remains the same. Please shut down your computer when you leave work Wednesday 7/20. At 5:30 PM that day, logins to the Admin server’s G:, H: and M: drives will be disabled so that we can migrate your files. On the morning of Thursday July 21, Novell Netware will be a thing of the past for all Admin users, and you’ll enjoy faster logins as well as better support under Active Directory.

Watch for messages in the Daily Piper describing specific points of interest for the following types of staff members who use Admin:

*Windows PC users, both XP and 7
*Apple Macintosh users
*Staff who access Admin drives remotely from off campus (Windows and Mac)
*Staff who supervise student employees with Windows PC workstations

If you have any questions about the upgrade, please call the ITS Help Desk at 651-696-6525.
