Getting Started: Windows Domains at the UW

Background

There are a diversity of Windows domains at the UW, with over 100 Windows domains noted during a network scan in 2007. As of 2009, most departments run their own Windows forest, however, about a dozen are part of a legacy UW forest. The majority of departmental-run Windows domains have a trust with UWWI, the Netid.washington.edu domain, to provide UW NetID based authentication services and authorization integration with the UW Groups Service.

It is expected that many Windows domains will migrate to UWWI delegated OUs.
