Due to an unscheduled power shutdown in Don and Marion McDougall Hall at 2 am on Tuesday, June 12, there may be some performance degradation of IT systems between 2 am and 8 am.

Please refer to the ITSS website for any service updates (http://www.upei.ca/itss/).

With the retirement of Novell network on campus, IT Systems and Services has begun disabling the familiar Novell login screen on computers across campus.

What does this mean for you?

When you first turn on your computer, after you press "Ctrl" + "Alt" + "Delete" the screen will look a bit different.

If you still have the Novell software enabled, your login screen will have a red "N" and you will see the "Computer logon only" link below the password field.

Once ITSS disables the Novell client, your login screen will no longer have a red "N" and "Log on to:" field should now read "ADDS".

You will continue to use the same username and password to login as you always have.

There is no change in functionality to your computer once you have logged in. This only changes the way in which you log-in, and only if your computer still has the legacy Novell client software.

If you have any issues or questions regarding this change, please contact the ITSS Help Desk at 902-566-0465 or helpdesk@upei.ca.
