Departmental Active Directory Groups Data Quality Problem

GW Information Technology (GW IT) has identified a problem in the nightly data update for Active Directory, which occurred this morning. While the Active Directory updates did get processed, the data regarding organization and division fields was changed to empty or “Other”. This affected 5,815 unique users. GW IT Specialists are working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.


Impact: As a result of this data quality issue members of the GW community may experience trouble authenticating to services that require group affiliation for access. Example services are shared printers and SharePoint Teamsites.
