ADILSTU Upgrade 7/9-7/10 Outage

The campus Active Directory will be upgraded to version 1.1 on the weekend of 7/9 & 7/10. During this time, AD services will be only sporadically available as the upgrade is performed. Following the upgrade, applications that prefer to connect to one particular global catalog may need to be restarted.

Please contact helpdesk@ilstu.edu if you have any questions or concerns about this process.

Update

The Upgrade to AD 1.1 and Windows 2003 is complete on the campus Active Directory domain, ADILSTU.  One of the domain controllers (Fire) exhibited some strange behavior during the upgrade and it has been temporarily removed from the domain for further diagnosis. The other 3 domain controllers appear to be stable and should be able to handle the load on their own. If necessary, we will replace Fire with its upgraded hardware ahead of schedule this coming week. The current schedule is still to replace the hardware on all 4 domain controllers over the weekend of July 23-24.
