Windows Users: Action Needed Week of June 5


May 31, 2017

ITS is pushing an update to Windows computers next week. This is happening because the University’s Active Directory, the database which manages user accounts and groups, is being reorganized.

Action Required:

On your Division’s assigned date (see below), when you leave work close all of your open applications and logout...but leave your computer ON. Your computer is going to reboot at 10 p.m. which is why it’s important to close and save your work.

Business Affairs - Tuesday, June 6
Academic Affairs Administrative Offices - Wednesday, June 7
Student Affairs and Chancellor's Office - Thursday, June 8
Athletics and University Advancement - Friday, June 9

If you forget and turn your computer off, then the update and reboots will occur when you turn your computer back on.

Note for off-campus users only: This change will be applied to your university computer when you connect to the campus network or login to the VPN.

If you have any questions, please contact the IT Service Desk at ext. 7-5500 or
