  Migration to Windows AD (Active Directory)
  CSC is going to deploy Windows AD (Active Directory) to replace the existing Novell NetWare in the coming academic year. The following will be affected by the migration:

- NetPassword (and Login Screen)
- Network file storage
- Network printing

  To prepare for the migration, CSC will change the settings of each teacher’s computer (ESAP, ESCE,ESEFD and ESLT only) from May 19 to July 31, 2008. CSC staff will contact each school to arrange appointments to perform the changes in existing computers or to install a new computer (applicable to the teachers who filled-in the “Full-Time Academic Staff Computer Upgrade Request Form – 2008” in March 2008).
  During the summer recess, CSC will change the settings of the school administrative staff’s computers and computers in the computer labs and classrooms in the headquarters. The data migration from the Novell NetWare servers to the Windows servers will be performed in August 2008 with further notice.
  CSC will try our best to minimize the impact on users' operation caused by the migration, but your cooperation is highly needed. As a preventive measure, each teacher and school administrative staff is suggested to backup his/her personal data regularly, especially before the summer recess.
   If you have any enquiry, please feel free to contact Joey Fong (ext. 152) or Simon Fong (ext. 231) for assistance. Thanks for your kind attention & cooperation in advance.
