When the blue light on top right corner of the reader turns green you have been granted access to that room. Entry into the Labs. Students must have their own student ID card to gain access to the computer labs. All students should ensure they have their student ID card with them at ALL times when in the labs, as regular ID checks are carried out by technical, academic and security staff members. Computer accounts will be disabled for those students who do not have their ID cards with them. Business Information Systems, University College Cork

Logging onto the Computers Every student needs a user logon Account in order to use the computers. This user account should be automatically set up for you to logon at the start of term (see information below), however, if you cannot logon after following the instructions below please contact the technical staff. Logging on for the first time When the computer starts up, you will see a windows dialog box which requires the following information: 1. Username 2. Password Your Username will ALWAYS be your student ID number, the Domain Name will ALWAYS be BIS but you must change your password after you log on the first time. For the first time you login your password is the same as your student ID number. User Name= BIS\ Your Student Number Password= Your Student Number Changing your password The new password must be at least 6 characters and is case sensitive i.e. it recognises whether you type in a capital or a lowercase letter and requires you to type in the same the next time again. Choose a password, which is easy to remember yet not obvious to others e.g. do not use your name or combination of initials and name. We suggest mixing numbers and letters. Please ensure that no one is watching when you set your password.

Network Disk Space Students CANNOT save anything to the hard disks on the individual computers in the labs. Every student in AFIS related courses is allocated disk space on a Network Server. Network Drive/Space = H:/Student Number How to access the space on the Network Server On your monitor screen you will see an icon in the top left corner called “Computer”. Double click the mouse on this icon and when the window opens you should see an icon for the H:\Drive. This is your allocated space on the network server. LIMITED SPACE ON YOUR H: DRIVE You have limited space only on the network server. When you reach your limit the server will not allow you to save anything further to your H:\drive until you have deleted some of the old files you have on there. Network Space IMPORTANT: This enables students to save course related work ONLY onto this space rather than having to rely totally on floppy disks/USB keys. It is the RESPONSIBILITY of the student to ensure they have a back up of all their material. We advise you use CD’s/USB keys and back up all your material regularly.
