Introduction

Currently UMIACS provides two user authentication stores, our Linux/UNIX Kerberos5 realm and Windows Active Directory (PC). To simplify our user experience we will consolidating authentication into a single Active Directory domain (UMIACS).

UMIACS staff will need to migrate all UMIACS user Windows accounts to a new domain to prepare for a single password for users in UMIACS. This migration step will start this process by moving from our existing Windows Active Directory domain (PC\username) to a new one (UMIACS\username). After this migration is completed we will announce a one month migration to consolidate from our UNIX Kerberos5 domain.

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

Actions you need to take

  • Log off your Windows workstation (if you have one) prior to 8am on Saturday, March 24th, otherwise you will be forcibly logged out at this time.
