Group policy cleanup and consolidation (9/5/2018 11:33:00 PM)
Starting now, and running through at least December, we will be deleting unused Group Policies, and merging and cleaning up existing group policies. This work is in preparation for upcoming Active Directory changes, and will be necessary to streamline the migrations that will be involved.
No significant changes are expected, but due to the nature of group policy editing, there is a small risk of error while editing and combining group policies.
Group policies which are not linked to any AD container will be deleted. There are a significant number of these discarded, and sometimes un-configured group policies, which we will delete to reduce the amount of work involved in the migration process.

Domains using UMKC email, that are not managed by UMKC, need to also be changed. Please contact Justin D Malyn to get details on the necessary changes, which must be in place before the 26th.

Wireless Core Router Replacement & WLC Reboot (10/11/2019 10:45:00 PM)
Our Cat6500 Core3 router is reaching end of usable life, and we have staged a new router for the wireless networks. We will be cutting over all of the new VLANs and physical interfaces to migrate away from the old box. Since this will necessarily incur substantial interruption and downtime, it benefits us to also use this as an opportunity to upgrade the wireless controller code with a newer stable patch release.
