Hokies Active Directory maintenance will be performed by Collaborative Computing Solutions (CCS) on Friday, February 27, beginning at 4pm. Maintenance is expected to be finished by 8pm.
We will be physically replacing the Hokies Domain Controller and DNS server "freeman.w2k.vt.edu" (184.108.40.206) with a new Hokies Domain Controller and DNS server called "gordon.w2k.vt.edu" (220.127.116.11).
Hokies Active Directory and Hokies DNS will be available during maintenance due to the presence of other Hokies domain controllers that will not be offline. Machines that have cached Freeman or Gordon as their domain controller or are programmed to use Freeman as primary DNS server may experience delays during logins and queries.
Once maintenance is finished, the switch should be transparent. The Hokies DNS server IP addresses will remain unchanged.
