IT uses a Microsoft Active Directory based network for file sharing and printing services. This software platform is an industry standard, and was developed by Microsoft. It allows IT staff to implement security policies that efficiently manage access to files and printing and distribute software to campus computers.
All faculty, staff, and students have an account on the Active Directory system, which is synchronized through the Account Management System to use your ValpoNet login information for login purposes. This system allows you to access your shared departmental S:\ drive to manage files used in your daily work. Faculty and staff are also provided with 1GB of space on the H: drive, which is a personal home directory to privately store files.
In addition, the Active Directory system is accessible off-campus or using mobile devices, through the WebStorage web interface.
