Leave Your Mac Computer “On” For NCAD Migration – Monday, July 13, 2009
HQ Macintosh users scheduled for migration to NCAD
July 9, 2009
You are scheduled for migration to the new NASA Consolidated Active Directory (NCAD) on Monday, July 13, 2009, after 6 p.m. Please mark your calendar or affix a note to your monitor to remind yourself of this date. If you have a schedule conflict, please send an email to HQ-DL-NCAD-POC within 24 hours to request that your migration be rescheduled.
In order to migrate successfully, you must restart your computer and leave it powered-on the evening of your migration date. Laptops must be in their docking station.
1) From the Apple icon, select “Restart…” from the drop down menu.
2) When the message “Are you sure you want to restart your computer now?” appears, click the “Restart” button.
3) You do not need to wait for the computer to finish restarting before you leave the office. It’s important that you do NOT turn off the power to the computer!
Occasionally, migration attempts do fail. A leave-behind flyer will be left on your chair to inform you if your migration was not successful and provide any instructions you may need. If you have more than one workstation, please follow these instructions for both workstations.
More information about this Agency project is available on the NCAD@HQ Web page, including a Frequently Asked Questions document.
Should you need assistance, please call the Enterprise Service Desk (ESD) at 358-HELP (4357) or 1-866-4NASAHQ (462-7247) or send an e-mail.
