Removal of AppleTalk from Campus Backbone

By: Craig Bennion - Revised: 2014-01-23 richard


Cisco's new router code will no longer support AppleTalk. Netcom is proposing to remove AppleTalk from the campus backbone.

With no Appletalk, Macs will no longer be able to access file servers, printers, or other AppleTalk services (database, calendaring, backup, etc.). Every Mac Mgr should evaluate how their departments and/or groups impact if AppleTalk was discontinued. If this will adversely affect your department and/or group and you wish to talk to a representative of Netcom at the meeting.
