What Computers are Affected?

ALL computers are affected in some way, but the main impacts are to Windows computers (desktops and laptops). Almost all Windows computers will be migrated to Active Directory, and joined to a specific section of the FSU Active Directory domain.

Non-Windows computers will not migrate to Active Directory. While we do anticipate some changes for non-Windows computers, primarily related to security management, these changes will be addressed primarily in the future, after the AD migration is complete.

There will be a few Windows computers that will not migrate to Active Directory, due to special needs or uses – typically, these would be special-purpose computers used in research. See the accompanying information on Research Computing and Exceptions for more information.
