Identification of Remote Users for NCAD – Responses Due August 14, 2009
NASA HQ IT POC’s
August 6, 2009

Phase II of the Headquarters’ migration to the new NASA Consolidated Active Directory (NCAD) is underway. This final phase includes Macintosh users, users with multiple workstations, remote users and NASA Detailees.

The NCAD team needs your help to 1) advise us of users in your organization who routinely work offsite or are currently on travel, and 2) determine if any of the user accounts in the attached spreadsheet are not in use and should be deactivated rather than migrated.  Your responses are requested by end of day Friday, August 14, 2009. 

The users listed in the attachment (HQ Only) include remote users and users who simply do not connect their workstations to the HQ network very often. In reviewing the attached spreadsheet, consider whether the listed users can reasonably be expected to make the computer in question available for NCAD migration prior to September 4, 2009.  Please bear in mind that users may have multiple computers. Place the appropriate code in the Ability to Migrate column as defined below. If the user cannot migrate normally, please also fill in the User Status and Computer Status columns, choosing one of the codes below.  Please add to the bottom of the spreadsheet any users in your organization who routinely work offsite or are currently on travel, and fill in the appropriate codes for them, too.

Ability to Migrate Normally Codes

A

Able to migrate normally. That is, the computer can be brought to (or is already at) HQ so migration can occur prior to September 7, 2009.

U

Unable to migrate normally.  The computer cannot reasonably be brought to HQ prior to September 7, 2009.

D

Don’t Know - No information or insufficient information is available to determine availability.

User Status Codes

E

User is on an extended absence such as maternity, sick, or disability leave and the computer is with them.

G

User prefers to use the Guest HQ network rather than the Private HQ Network but is in fact at HQ.

R

User is truly a “remote user” who regularly works more than 50 miles from HQ.

T

User is travelling nationally and/or internationally at this time, and the computer is with them.

W

User works from home within 50 miles of HQ.

Computer Status Codes

P

Computer is the user’s primary workstation.  Any interruption of availability could cause a work stoppage.

H

Computer is a secondary workstation stored at HQ.  It is locked in an overhead bin or drawer.

O

Computer is a secondary workstation and is stored offsite.  Losing access to the workstation, even for up to 3 weeks if shipped back and forth, would not constitute a burden for the user.

Your assistance with this is greatly appreciated.

Copies of all user communications concerning NCAD, a high level schedule, a Frequently Asked Questions document, and a project summary are available on the NCAD@HQ Web page for your reference. 

Questions about this request should be directed to Leslie Cahoon at 552-2744 or Liwen Tzeng at 552-2709.
