Affected servers:
winhome.cc.gatech.edu

WHEN IS IT HAPPENING?

WHY IS IT HAPPENING?
The server that is currently hosting the directories has reached end of life, and the move will increase responsiveness and stability of the service.

WHO IS AFFECTED?

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?
The change should be transparent and not require any action on your part. Users may be asked to re-enter their username and password for their home directory or re-map the drive. Instructions on how to map your Windows Home Directory can be found here:
