Microsoft Office 2013 - OIT Managed Desktop

NCSU sysnews - Fri, 01/30/2015 - 03:00
Client Solutions would like to move forward with the following plan to begin migrating its entire client base to Microsoft Office 2013:

Volunteer Opt-In Period for Entire Department To Move to Office 2013- February 2, 2015


1. Please discuss with your Vice Chancellor, Dean, Director or Department Head the desire for Client Solutions to move to Microsoft Office 2013. Stress that there has been an initial testing period since December 2014 with a group of Lantechs across our client base and their feedback has been positive. This will take the client base to the most recent version of Microsoft Office.

2. Upon approval, please send an email to Franklin Finch (fpfinch@ncsu.edu) by January 29 by 5 PM indicating that you entire department is ready and cleared by upper management. All machines for that entire unit will be added to the Microsoft Office 2013 collection.

3. Over the weekend of January 30, your machines will begin receiving the new Microsoft Office 2013 application. Please be sure your machines are left on during this weekend deployment.

4. On Monday, February 2, machines that were not on during the weekend, will begin checking in and will start receiving the new application.

*As a reminder, some of you have Office 2010 32-Bit versions due to in-house applications that require them. Client Solutions has the ability to identify these and will make every effort to warn units prior. However, we are looking to you to remind us of any applications that might require the 64-vs-32 bit flavors.

*This will give a unit the option of receiving Microsoft Office 2013 prior to the forced deployment.

Forced Opt-In Period for Entire OIT Managed Desktop Client Base To Move to Office 2013- March 2, 2015


1. Client Solutions will add remaining departments that did not opt-in during February.

2. Machines will begin checking in and deploying Microsoft Office 2013.

3. Entire Managed Desktop Environment will be on Office 2013 by Friday, March 13.

*As a reminder, we will only be updating Office 2013 on OIT managed machines (desktops and laptops) that are domain joined.

*NCSU has a campus wide license for Microsoft Office so university owned stand-alone machines can get the software at no charge from the following url:

In addition to these changes, we've also taken the opportunity to clean a number of older permissions off of the OU that contains all Unity accounts as was approved by the AD Tech committee.

This should cause no changes for any current services.
