Windows Server

The CSPC1 Windows Domain (Active Directory) is used to authenticate users within the School of Computer Science.  Passwords can be created and reset using the CS Password Utility.

When you logon to a lab PC that is a member of the domain, your Desktop files are downloaded automatically from your roaming profile. Your My Documents folder is also mounted from the zulu server. When you logoff, any changes to your Desktop will be saved to your roaming profile.  It is recommended that you save large files to your My Documents folder.

The zulu.cspc1.uwindsor.ca server is the CSPC1 Domain Controller, and also provides:

  • an sftp service (so that you can download and upload files to/from your Desktop and My Documents folders)
  • Microsoft SQL server
  • Team Foundation Server (for use with Visual Studio)
