Consolidating domains

Sure, the platform is different, and there’s a learning curve, but the appliance is far more efficient, faster and stable than its Windows counterpart. Well there’s two options – build a new one and swing your hosts over, or migrate your existing v Center. While this isn’t going to be a step-by-step guide on how to migrate to the VCSA, I do want to talk about how to make your migration successful.The only step-by-step I’m going to outline for the upgrade is this one since I get a lot of questions on it.

Consolidating domains

No, it’s not a fad, in fact if you want to make sure you can take advantage of all the latest cool features, you should make the jump.

The days of Windows and MS SQL are over, at least as far as v Sphere management is concerned.

It is critical to communicate major network changes such as migration early to all users - —so that users can be prepared and can start using and benefitting from these changes.

UIT’s Identity and Access Management (IAM) team, which, among other things, governs and enforces user access of technologies at the U, continues to expand the footprint of central Active Directory (AD) systems.

After all, this is the easiest way to deploy v Sphere – stand up a Windows VM, do a simple v Center install so all components reside on the same VM and TA-DA, VMWARE!

You can migrate one or more Yammer networks with their own email domains ("subsidiary" networks) to a larger Yammer Enterprise network ("parent" network).

One of the IAM team’s major focuses is consolidating “child” domains into the central AD.

Last year, Microsoft met with IAM members, pre-identified IT administrators, and UIT’s Information Security Office (ISO), UMail group, and network team.

“The benefit is zero administration,” said IAM Program Associate Director Subhasish Mitra.
