The College of Law is deploying new workstations in a number of locations including the computer lab and offices of student organizations and clinics. The workstations are three times faster than what is currently in use, and will feature a larger monitor. Deployment will occur in phases.
We will move from Novell to Microsoft for file, printing and network login. During the setup of a new file server, all data from the Novell file server will have to migrate to the new Windows file server. Software upgrades will be done to each workstation to support the new Windows login that will use Campus ID and password instead of Novell IDs.
The College of Law will expand its virtual server pool and back up tools and practices in order to centralize and better manage network resources. This involves relocating all remaining network resources hosted elsewhere to the college’s server pool.
The College of Law is migrating its labs, clinics, and office workstations to the Windows 7 operating system, skipping over the problematic and inefficient Vista platform.
We are preparing to sunset our home-grown web authentication service, MyLaw, replacing it with LDAP system authentication. End-users will not experience changes.
The College of Law web course site is being overhauled. The updated site will address students concerns by better facilitating access and updates to course management systems.
The College of Law is overhauling the faculty profile template.
