Computing Services Maintenance for 5/27 and 5/28/2010

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010
The following activities will take place this Thursday, May 27th after 9:00 PM:

-Critical and security patches from Microsoft will be pushed out to all employee, 

lab and TEC Classrooms. If possible, please leave any employee computers turned on 

when you leave work on Thursday in order to reduce the amount of interruption to 

your work schedule.

 

Also scheduled for this weekend beginning promptly at 5 PM on Friday (5/28) is the 

student email migration to GMail. Although this will not affect employee email 

services, Computing Services wanted to inform all faculty and staff in the event 

that a student inquires about the cut-over. Below is a copy of the message sent 

to all current students:

----

Just a quick reminder that we will be shutting down the student email server this 

weekend, as we complete the migration of all student email accounts to Google Apps. 

The server will be inaccessible beginning at 5PM on Friday (5/28). Once your email 

has been migrated, you will be able to access all of your messages and your 

addressbook by logging into http://mail.grizzlies.adams.edu. With this change, 

your email address will also change to username@grizzlies.adams.edu. We will 

forward any incoming email to your new account for a few months, but you will 

need to notify your contacts of your new address.

We appreciate your patience as we finish this migration, and please don't 

hesitate to contact the ASC Computing Services Helpdesk at asccompserv@adams.edu  

or by calling us at x7741 with any questions or concerns.

Thank you,
Computing Services
