Active Directory account creation change
Beginning Monday, Aug. 2, all new eligible University user accounts will be added to Active Directory automatically as part of the account creation process. The new process, which has been requested by many participating units and individuals, will eliminate the need for individuals to activate their central Active Directory account through the MyAccount page.
Current users that have not already opted in will be added to the directory beginning Monday, Aug. 9, beginning with staff and faculty and followed by students. These additions are expected to be completed by Friday, Aug. 13.
These additions will not impact the performance of Active Directory domain services.
To check your eligibility status visit www.umn.edu/myaccount and click Active Directory Account Options.
