Active Directory Pre-Migration Inventory

Why we need this information:

The number, type, and revision of the workstations in your department will in large part determine the amount of time it will take to migrate your department onto our new servers.  Having a more detailed inventory of your systems will allow us to budget appropriate staff resources, and will minimize disruption to your department on migration day.

Explanation of the items above, and how to obtain this information:

Total number of workstations in your department:  This is a raw count of the total number of system in your department.  It includes desktop computers, laptop/mobile computers, and both Windows and Macintosh systems.

Number of Windows XP SP3 or Vista SP1 systemsThis is the number of Windows systems in your department which satisfy the minimum systems requirements for migration.  These computers will require little to no modification prior to migration.  To obtain the version of Windows and the SP (Service Pack) level, simply right-click the "My Computer" icon, and select "properties".  The Windows version and Service Pack level can be seen under the "General" tab.

Number of Windows systems not meeting the above specifications:  This is the number of workstations which meet the minimum Windows OS requirement, but not the minimum Service Pack level.  These systems will require extensive patching or OS reinstallation prior to migration.  Note that systems which are not running Windows XP or Vista at present will not be considered for use with Campus AD services.

Number of Macintosh OS X v10.4 (or later) systems:  This is the number of Macintosh workstations that meet minimum system requirements for migration without requiring any additional software.  To determine the current version of your Macintosh, select "About this Mac" from the Apple menu in your Finder.

Number of pre-v10.4 Macintosh systems:  This is the number of Macintosh workstations that do not meet the minimum specs for migration.  These systems will need to be upgraded to a current Mac OS, or will have applied a "shortcuts only" connection to Campus AD services.
