Laptop change delayed; desktop change goes forward
Because an adjustment must be made to encrypted laptops to allow the new login procedure to be implemented, only on-campus desktop computers will have the UMN.EDU (Kerberos Realm)
login software uninstalled beginning Wednesday, November 18, 2009.
If you use a University desktop running Windows XP, follow the updated directions to change your login domain from UMN.EDU (Kerberos Realm) to AD. Again, changing your login domain will not affect your files or settings. The new login procedure has been extensively tested and deployed throughout the University.
Please make the change now to avoid any future login problems.
Although the removal of the UMN.EDU (Kerberos Realm)
login has been delayed to ensure that you will not be locked out of your laptops, the University will be decommissioning the Kerberos service on January 9, 2010, so the change must be made prior to the Christmas holiday. CFANS will provide further instructions after we return from the Thanksgiving holiday.
