Shared directories to move to new server

Communications Technologies and PC Services will move campus departmental shared directories to a new server next weekend, March 3 and 4. This is the drive typically labeled V: in Windows Explorer. For most users this will be a seamless process very similar to the recent Home Directory move. 

On the morning of Monday, March 5, scanning documents from the Ricoh copiers to network storage will not work for a few hours while we reconfigure the Ricoh devices throughout campus to point to the new servers. By the afternoon, everything should be back to normal. 

If you have questions or problems please call the IT Support Center at 5050 and we will resolve the situation promptly.
