20170322: Planned work on 4/2 for home and group directories

A service outage is planned for all Managed Workstation home (H:) and group (I:\groups) directories.

What and When:

On Sunday, April 2, 2017, all Managed Workstation home (H:) and group (I:\groups) directories will be unavailable from 8am to 9am, for planned maintenance.

More info:

This work is required to switch the underlying authentication mechanisms for the file servers that provide the home and group directories as part of the migration to the NETID domain.  During this work, there will be no access to files and folders in both user home directories (H:) and group directories (i:\groups).

If you have questions about this planned work, please send email to with “MWS: Planned file server work” in the subject line.
