Synchronize your Kerberos Password with Windows Active Directory Password

As a part of the transition from Novell to Windows Infrastructure, synchronization of your Windows Active Directory and your Kerberos password is required in order to access your shared drive. Having the passwords synchronized will ensure that when you log into your computer, the shared drives will automatically appear in “My Computer.” The following instructions are to guide you through the process of changing or synchronizing your password.

You may print the guide by using this PDF.

School of Nursing eDir to Windows AD Migration

ITCS Novell to Windows Migration

ITCS will decommission the use of central Novell services on June 30, 2009. The School of Nursing accordingly will be migrating data from our Novell servers to Windows servers prior to the decommission date.

To facilitate the data transfer, there will be designated data migration time frames during which we ask faculty and staff to refrain from accessing the SON Novell server. This is critical for accurate data migration because open files or files that are in use cannot be transferred to the new server.

The migration windows will begin May 2nd, 2009. The migration schedule is listed below. Additional times may be requested if needed. We realize that there may be faculty and staff who will need access to server files during the migration windows. If you need access to your files during any of the times listed, please contact SN-ITS and we will reschedule the migration of your data so that you may complete your work.
