Scheduled upgrade to Windows Active Directory

First posted: Monday, 10 August 2020, 12:45pm

IT Services will be performing an upgrade to the Windows Active Directory service which will commence this Saturday15th August 2020, and will continue over the course of the next few weeks.  

While the Windows Active Directory service is used for authentication by many other services across Trinity, we expect no downtime for these services during the upgrade.? However, please be aware that several 'at risk' periods are envisaged as follows:

  • Thursday 20th August, 9am – 5pm
  • Tuesday 25th August, 9am – 5pm
  • Thursday 27th August, 9am – 5pm
  • Tuesday 1st September, 9am – 5pm

These continuous improvement works will deliver a more robust Active Directory service and are a necessary prerequisite for the upgrade of IT Services' identity management software.
