SharePoint users migrated to BoilerAD need to follow special login procedures

<div>
<br>&nbsp;
<br>
<br>SharePoint users will have trouble using the application while
<br>Purdue continues to migrate its computer systems to the new BoilerAD domain. ITaP
<br>has some instructions to help overcome the issue.
<br>
<br> 
<br>
<br>Users will know they are affected if they see a message
<br>“Sorry, you don’t have access to this page” on SharePoint sites to which they
<br>know they have access.  Some
<br>users may be able to log in, but may not have access to content that was
<br>previously accessible, or they may not have the ability to edit lists,
<br>libraries or pages.
<br>
<br> 
<br>
<br>Firefox works best with SharePoint, and ITaP suggests using
<br>this browser with all SharePoint sites if possible.  Some features, like “Open with Explorer” and “Export
<br>to Excel,” will still require Internet Explorer.

<br>
<br>ITaP is migrating Purdue to the new BoilerAD (Active
<br>Directory) domain system and SharePoint may not properly recognize machines
<br>that have been moved to BoilerAD. This will be resolved in coming weeks when
<br>SharePoint moves to BoilerAD.
<br>
<br> 
<br>
<br>The current solution is to sign into SharePoint using
<br>Purdue’s old system, OnePurdue. ITaP will communicate to SharePoint users when
<br>they should begin using BoilerAD for logging into SharePoint instead.
<br>
<br> 
<br>
<br>Directory services on a computer network handle tasks such
<br>as security and authentication. OnePurdue was installed more than a decade ago
<br>and can no longer keep up with modern demands. BoilerAD gives Purdue an
<br>up-to-date directory service with capabilities for future growth.
