Changes Windows Active Directory Scheduled for December 5

On Wednesday, December 5, 2012, during the regularly scheduled maintenance window (5:00-7:00 a.m.), Information Technology Services (ITS) will make multiple changes to the Windows Active Directory.

Changes made during this time include:
*A and AAAA DNS records for access.psu.edu will be corrected;
*The forest functional level will be raised allowing us to upgrade the encryption type with the Kerberos realm to AES-256.

These changes may impact all users using the ACCESS domain. Please note that any users using versions of Windows prior to Windows XP SP2 may no longer be able to authenticate and are encouraged to update their Windows Operating System to one that is supported by Microsoft.
