1 Hello! And Welcome To Clinical Science @ North Bristol If you are new to computers, or if your not, then this induction presentation will give you the basics of what you need to know in order to use the computers in CSNB. In order to log onto a computer you need a user name and password. It maybe that you have a guest logon username and are awaiting your own username – this can take up to 3 weeks and is reliant on Personnel processing your details. You cannot have an email account With a Guest logon username. Click Once To Continue

2 You can check if you have been registered by visiting: If your name appears here (and check that you search under ALL category) then you will have a username and email address. Step One – if you appear on contact directory for the first time – email: and ask for a password – you must then change this password by visiting (and read rules on length and characters allowed) : Step Two – You then need to change your email address to reflect your real name (you can only do this once so take care you choose wisely) – go to: Click Once To Continue

3 This is the University home page URL This is the link for finding people This is the link to faculty/departments This is the link to main computer service help Click Once To Continue

4 Software Not Supported Includes: Outlook Express Netscape *Every user is required to use only their UOB email account, and only to use Mulberry for this. This is local policy and is for the security of the network. Supported Software Includes: Microsoft Office 2003 The E-mail program – Mulberry* Mozilla Firefox Click Once To Continue

5 Data Storage 1 Most research groups have a place where they store or backup data. All groups have special computers (called Servers), where data is centrally stored and/or backup. To find out where you will store your data please ask your local network representative (failing that, ask me) : Lung Research: Sharon Standen Renal Unit: Simon Satchell Diabetes & Metabolism: Alistair Williams / Polly Bingley Neurosciences: Claire Rice Care of the Elderly: Pat Kehoe Academic Rheumatology: Wael Kafienah Orthopaedics: Sabina Gheduzzi Admin : Rich Aitken Click Once To Continue

6 Data storage and its backup cannot be over emphasised in its importance. As a minimum standard, data should be backed up onto two different types of media (say, hard drive and CDR). Backup should also be preformed regularly – at least at the end of each day, preferably every 15 mins. Ask yourself this – how much data could you afford to lose? Data loss occur regularly – why? – because users still dont back up. If data is stored on another PC (Server), you need a means of connecting to the data stored on it. This process is called MAPPING A NETWORK DRIVE (it also applies when connecting to shared network printers). The next slide will show you how to map a theoretical share on a PC called SMH-IT and a shared folder on this PC called SHARED Data Storage 2 Click Once To Continue

7 Data Storage 3 How do you map a network drive?. Well firstly, you have to know the name of the computer where the folder is located (or the IP address - this will be something like or or You can use either the IP number or computer name to MAP A NETWORK DRIVE. Secondly, you have to have access or permission to the shared (yes, it has to be a shared folder - and this will have to be set up by someone with Administrative rights) folder. Here is how to... do it (a fictitious folder on a fictitious computer) – Under Windows 2000/XP: Lets say we are on the SMH domain. (the domain refers to a group of computers who are connected and administered by a server on a network). Any computer on this domain will be recognised by the server, any computer which is not, will be denied access. Each computer on the domain will have a name ie: smh-bill or smh-surgery1. If you wanted to map from smh-bill to smh-surgery1 you would need permission to access a folder or printer on smh-surgery1. It works in a similar way if you are on a workgroup To start, using the right mouse button, right click on the Network neighbourhood icon (or My Network Places icon) on your desktop and select map network drive from the drop down list (figure 1 on next slide).

8 Data Storage 4 Figure 1 Figure 2 Then type in the computer name (\\SMH-IT) or IP number (\\137.222.xx.xx) followed by the share name (\SHARED) First, right click My Network Places (or My Computer) Then select map network drive Click Once To Continue

9 CSNB Web Site The Department has its own web site which contains a large amount of extremely important and useful information. In particular, the I.T. web site has many useful pages. All new staff should read these as soon as they can to avoid unnecessary questions being asked. They can be found at:
