Current ITS Projects
- 12/5/2013 - ITS will establish an automated process to enable and disable accounts in Austin Active Directory based upon EID affiliations and entitlements. At the upcoming "FYI" session (10:00 AM, December 11 in POB 2.302) ITS will share more about the implementation timeline and how this process will impact Austin AD users across the UT community.
- 8/12/2013 - Migrations are being put on hold until issues are worked out, fully tested, and the backlog of support requests at the ITS Help Desk are addressed. This will enable us to develop a revised action plan and schedule before we resume the migrations. An upcoming meeting for Technical Support Contacts (TSCs) is scheduled for August 15th.
