Brief Description:

Provides users the ability to log on to the Enterprise Directory and IT staff the ability to centrally manage user accounts.

Detailed Description:

Active Directory (AD) service is the University authentication directory that supports enterprise systems. It also provides IT mechanisms for centralizing desktop and server management as well as domain administration tools. This service allows for a single user name to access enterprise systems such as: administrative and academic computers, ePortfolio, eCommunity, WebCourses, SharePoint, and several other university systems. CS&T will continue to add applications and services such as Microsoft Exchange and unified communications to the domain. Active Directory service also provides financial benefits to campus units including reducing extraneous resources, centralized account provisioning, improving security, and reducing the need for departmental servers. Price is per domain user.

Included Functionality:
