Windows XP will no longer be supported by Microsoft after April 8, 2014. 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 April 8, 2014.
Thanks to all our Pepperdine colleagues who have been upgrading or surplusing their Windows XP computers. There are only 211 computers at Pepperdine still running XP. Of those, 125 need to be upgraded to Windows 7 while 86 computers need to be retired as they do not have the resources required to be upgraded. E-mails were sent on 1/15/14 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.
