CedarNet Username Changes and CedarNet Monthly Maintenance

July 21st, 2014

CedarNet Username Changes - before 8/8/14

Three times a year, we offer students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to request a change in their CedarNet username (login name). Reasons for requesting a change would include wanting a shorter login name or to reflect a change in your last name (via marriage or some other legal action).

The CedarInfo transaction¬†for requesting a change in your username is located under “Individual Transactions”. The deadline for requesting changes this summer is August 8. The actual changes will be made on the morning of August 12. The changes will take a few hours to process through all of our systems, so people whose usernames are being changed will not have access to some resources that morning.

The next open period for requesting a change will be at the end of the fall semester, so if you are anticipating a change in legal name before then you should consider requesting a change in your username now.

You will want to think about some potential negatives in regards to changing your username, especially if you have used your Cedarville email address to subscribe to Facebook, shopping accounts, etc.

Once a username is changed, we will maintain an alias for the old email address for a period of six months. Incoming email sent to the old address and the new address will be delivered. After six months, only the new email address will be valid.
Monthly CedarNet Maintenance

Information Technology will be performing monthly Windows maintenance on the servers Tuesday, July 22, beginning at 5:30 a.m. Maintenance should be completed by 7:00 a.m.

During this time, you may notice a brief outage with the main web server, as well as intermittent access to the Google mail login page.
