Back in July 2012, Information Technology Services (ITS) began migrating departments within the Administration and Finance division from Novell to Active Directory. Every
department within this division is now using Active Directory to access the H: (personal network drive space) and J: (departmental shared network drive space) drives.
The next division migrating to Active Directory is Student Affairs. ITS staff have been working with Student Affairs staff to ensure a smooth transition to the new system.
The migration for Academic Affairs will start in May. The ITS Active Directory Migration team will be sending out detailed communications soon to faculty who will not be available during the summer. It will explain the options on what faculty can do to ensure a smooth transition from Novell to Active Directory before fall semester.
Project details about the migration from Novell to Active Directory are available here.
