Computer Authentication for 3rd & 4th Floors
The entire University will soon be using Microsoft's Active Directory for networking and authentication purposes. What this means for you is that soon all of our computers (excluding the Macs) will require currently-affiliated U of MN students, staff and faculty to activate Active Directory in their online account in order to log onto a computer. (You may want to get a jump on things and do this for yourself, as well.) We will have guest accounts for unaffiliated users to use when the time comes. For now, computers on the 3rd and 4th floors are the only ones that require Active Directory authentication. The rest of the PCs will follow, post-construction (mid-August).
I will have instructions at both desks. You can also access instructions here and in the Student Worker Guide.
