Active Directory (AD) accounts (Domain and Local)

Active Directory (AD) is Western Illinois University's (WIU's) Windows directory service. AD manages a user's access to Windows and Mac OS X workstations and many network resources such as shared group storage, secure wireless authentication and VPN (virtual private network) authentication. AD user names and passwords are automatically synchronized with ECom (LDAP) information and updated in the LDAP system. University Technology (uTech) creates and maintains user accounts, group membership, permissions and passwords.
