Consolidating Your Network Drives 11/22/11

We will be simplifying the network drive structure for everyone beginning at 5:00 PM Tuesday November 22.  At that time, access to the Academic and Admin file servers - your H: drive/individual user folder - will be temporarily stopped.  The various 'user' directories on these servers will be consolidated into one location, such that everyone will have personal network storage space on files.macalester.edu/users.  We expect the consolidation to be complete and all access to your files restored at approximately 9:00 PM.  All other networked services, including email, Banner, the Internet and printing should not be affected.

Macintosh users, you will need to update your drive mappings to smb://files.macalester.edu/users.  If you need help, ITS staff are ready to assist you: contact your AIA or call the Help Desk at 651-696-6525. Windows PC users, your computers should automatically notice the change and update accordingly.  Please let us know if you need assistance or have questions.
