July 27: CommonSpot upgrade || POSTPONED
This work has been postponed until later in the year.
We will be upgrading CommonSpot some time on July 27 - more specific times will be announced closer to the work.
This will primarily affect authoring. Public facing web pages hosted in CommonSpot should only see a brief blip in availability.
July 30: enabling home.ohio.edu automatic drive mapping
On July 30, home.ohio.edu personal network storage will automatically map as a network location/drive on any AD-joined university computer. This includes lab computers, departmentally owned machines and VMware sessions. As long as the computer is a part of Active Directory, Windows or Mac, your home folder will automatically show up as a network drive when you log into that computer.
If you already have your home drive mapped on an AD-joined machine, this change will not affect that mapping.
Departmental shared folders and Box storage are not affected by this change.
This change will be non-disruptive.
