The domain controller, MUAD2 (, will be retired on July 29.  To minimize impact, I need your help in identifying appliances, servers, and/or applications that are pointing directly to MUAD2 to authenticate.  Please take a moment to look at the following wiki page to add or edit any changes as required (you will need to log in to view the page).

If you have an appliance, server, and/or application that is using MUAD2 to authenticate, please change the authenticating server to “muad.local” instead of using a specific domain controller.   When you can’t enter “muad.local” and have to identify a specific server, use “muad4.muad.local” or “muad3.muad.local”.

In addition, NTP (time synchronization) settings should be updated as well, and changed to “” instead of MUAD2 or another domain controller.

If you have any questions, please email me.
