Windows XP will no longer be supported by Microsoft after 4/8/14. Consequently, all university-owned computers running Windows XP need to be upgraded to Windows 7 or else retired from duty as they will not be allowed on Pepperdine’s network after 4/8/14.
Thanks to all our Pepperdine colleagues who attended Windows XP sunset town hall sessions on 11/11/13. Thirty people participated in these town halls and learned that 367 computers at Pepperdine are running XP. Of those, 238 need to be upgraded to Windows 7 while 129 computers need to be retired as they do not have the resources required to be upgraded. Town hall attendees learned that e-mails will be sent on 11/12/13 to the owners of these computers (if they are able to be determined) informing them of the Windows XP sunset program. If no definitive owner can be determined for a given computer, then technology support personnel will visit the computer and work with attendant staff in sunsetting XP.
