Introduction

UMIACS staff will be migrating all UMIACS user Windows accounts to a new domain to prepare for simplified password management. This migration will kickoff this process by moving from our existing Windows Active Directory domain (pc.umiacs.umd.edu) to a new one (ad.umiacs.umd.edu). After this migration we will be starting a one month migration to consolidate from our UNIX Kerberos5 domain.

No files or emails will be lost as part of this migration.​
