|Did you know your username has CHANGED?!?!?!|
The Office of Information Technology is currently preparing the 1st stage of the domain consolidation and implementing a new naming format. This change affects all users with the “short” username convention.
We are updating you today, August 29, 2016, that an important update took place this weekend to the Department of Education’s User Name and Email System. In 2015, the Office of Instructional Technology commenced a User Mail Migration process. The main objective of the migration is for the Department to have one primary source of communication. In order for us to move to final completion, we are tasked with moving all users/computers to an environment that supports all employees and students of the Virgin Islands Department of Education.
The Office of Instructional Technology must move all users/computers to one permanent domain (vide.vi) and to eliminate duplicate name(s) or conflicts, all email addresses must be changed under this consolidated environment. Please visit the Internal Address Book (Address Book VIDE.VI -http://addressbook.vide.vi/ ) for your name change, which will take effect this weekend, August 28-29, 2016.
Today Monday, August 29, 2016, all users will be required to use the new login account (ex. John Doe- login - john.doe) to access their computers and other network resources. Full implementation of the user migration will affect all users this week, all old accounts will be deactivated and all users will be imposed to use their new account. This change will help move the Department to one collaborative environment for more functionality, manageability, and efficiency. Please get familiar with the new login credentials. It is imperative for users to be knowledgeable of their new login credentials because, as the transition is complete, users will be required to use the new credentials. Thanks to each and every one for your support and cooperation as we improve communication within the Virgin Islands Department of Education.
