LDAP and Kerberos Migration

As of Wednesday, April 16, the OCF has begun using a new and improved account storage and authentication framework. Among other things, this transition brings faster and more reliable Windows printing and single-sign-on support for the Unix clients. It also means that you MUST sign on to at least one OCF service (Windows or Unix clients, webmail, POP, IMAP, online account tools, SSH (WITH YOUR PASSWORD), etc.) sometime in the next six months, or else you will become an obligatory beta tester for the password migration tool, coming in the fall.
