Print server implementation for Financial Aid

CN Financial Aid Customers,

Telecom will be expanding the network space you currently reside in to accommodate more workstations and printers in Kerr. Additionally, the Community Network will be migrating your printers to our print server and deploying new printer configurations to your workstations.

When: Tonight, starting after 5:00 PM

What do I need to do?

Please leave your computer turned on and logged off; the easiest way to do this is to simply restart your computer before you leave for the day. Note that your first login after the migration might be slow as the new printer configs take effect.

Services affected:

– All CN supported computers running Windows or Windows Virtual Machine software.

– All networked printers.

How is printing going to change?

– Your printers will still be available to you as before but will show up differently (see attached image).

– You may need to select a new default printer and reconfigure your printing preferences.

– Printers will no longer be manually installed. If there’s a change to existing printers or new printers are added, only the print server needs to be updated and everyone will automatically get the change.

Community Network technicians will be available on-site tomorrow morning to address any issues or questions you may have.

Thank you for your patience while we apply these changes.

Your CN Management Team:  Scott Emery, Lucas Turpin, Lucas Friedrichsen, Chris Sinnett
