UNT Moving from GroupWise to Exchange/Outlook
By Allen Bradley, Manager, Network Computing Services
The University of North Texas will take a giant leap forward this summer as we convert our legacy server and email systems from Novell to comparable Microsoft products. The most notable change will be the migration from Novell's GroupWise email to Microsoft's Exchange/Outlook. Other changes, like file and print services, will be mostly transparent to the end user.
To ensure a smooth transition, the CITC has engaged Dell Professional
Services (DPS) to consult us in the design and implementation of
Microsoft's Active Directory, Exchange email system and file and print
services. In addition, I have assembled two groups which represent areas
around the campus who will assist and participate in the smooth
implementation of these new systems.
Timeline for Moving to Microsoft
Though we have been preparing for this migration for quite some time, we
officially began February 26, 2007 when DPS came to UNT for their 15
week engagement. The CITC is dedicated to the successful migration and
will convert ourselves sometime in May. This will allow the
Implementation Team to gain the necessary experience and confidence to
begin the campus-wide roll out that will be completed during the summer.
