CLA-OIT is pleased to announce an upgrade to the University's Active Directory file servers (aka your home and shared drives). All file shares will be moved to a faster, more dependable server. Follow our online guide to get connected.
The upgrade requires a 24 hour downtime from 8 a.m. Saturday, December 1 until 8 a.m. Sunday, December 2. To guarantee that you have no open files on the file shares, please shut down your computer(s) at the end of the day on Friday, November 30.
During this window you will not have access files on these volumes:
- Home Folders
- Department Shares
The names and connection steps of the file shares will change. Follow these steps to connect Windows or Mac systems.
What's Staying the Same
You will continue to have access to files and folders via a web browser at http://webfiles.umn.edu.
