Dude, where’s my Tigercat and Snowleopard?

Submitted by Mike Lynch

If you attended Carol’s budget meeting on Tuesday, you already know there are plans afoot to migrate away from Novell’s Netware to Microsoft Windows DFS (Distributed File System) for networked access to files.  Many more details will be available shortly but this post will serve as a heads-up.

To test the new system we will migrate all of the LIS/ITS files from Snowleopard, as well as all personal files for LIS staff from Tigercat (drive U:) to DFS on Thursday night, April 9th.  When you log in Friday morning you will be asked if you want to uninstall Novell — you should answer yes to this question.

As noted, more details will be available soon.  Meanwhile, please post any questions as comments to this post so everyone can see the answers.
