Migration to Windows NT.
Doles, Daniel T.
In the constantly changing world of technology, migration is not only inevitable but many times necessary for survival, especially when the end result is simplicity for both users and IT support staff. This paper describes the migration at Franklin College (Indiana). It discusses the reasons for selecting Windows NT, the steps taken to complete the migration, the available tool set that simplified the migration, and the ways Windows NT has streamlined network management. Mistakes that were made and a few of the drawbacks encountered are discussed. The paper also covers the pre-migration environment; migration for the administrative users; and migration for the faculty and student labs. The migration at Franklin College accomplished the desired goals. They standardized on a single network operating system, streamlined network administration, and reduced the number of user databases from five to two. (SWC)
