Staff Macintosh users: what to expect July 20-21

If you are a staff member who accesses files on the Admin server’s G: (GROUPS) or H: (FACSTF2) drives using an Apple Macintosh, the upgrade from Novell to Active Directory (AD) will change how you get to those files.  Existing aliases will no longer work to access Admin.  To re-establish your Admin file access, here are two methods:

1.  ITS staff will send out two customized aliases, G_Groups and H_Users, via email on Thursday 7/21.  Copy one or both of these shortcuts to your Mac, then doubleclick on the alias to connect.

2.  Open the Finder.  Under the Go menu, select Connect to Server.  Enter either smb://files.macalester.edu/admin/groups or smb://files.macalester.edu/users.

If you have difficulty, please call the ITS Help Desk at 651-696-6525.
