Technical Hints

  • The password to use for Windows is the same Kerberos-password that you use for logging on to UNIX, Linux or picking up your mail.
  • With an expired password (i.e. when your password was reset in the USC) you can change your password from everywhere with the web-interface.
    In the Windows-Pools, the user st@rt (with empty password) directly launches a browser-session with this web-interface for you.
  • When logging on for the very first time ever in any Windows-Pool, please wait a while to let various automatic preparations finish. Please log off once after that. After that you can start your regular use with a completed personal profile, regardless on what Windows-Pool machine.
  • To avoid misunderstandings concerning the LanguageBar, you should take a look at the explanation .
  • Drive H: is the home directory. In this directory you should store your own files. On that drive you have limited diskspace.
  • You can find drive L: in your LINUX-home-directory as directory windows. Accordingly you have as much diskspace an drive L: as you have under LINUX. If you klick on drive L: in the Explorer, you have access to all of your LINUX files. Note that if you never had any LINUX-Files in that location, you will not see this networkdrive from Windows.
  • At present you have 300 MB for your user-profile. If you exceed that quota you can't logout as long as you don't delete enough files from your profile.
    This is often caused by files that you have stored on your Desktop instead of your homedrive!
  • The majority of applications that need to be configured use My Applications as setup-tool!
  • Please note that Seamonkey is already configured for e-mailing.
