6. New to the School of Business?

6.1. New School of Business Faculty/Staff Information


Important Security Concern

  • University of Connecticut UITS, and School of Business IT Services will NEVER ask for a password or personal information via email. Please regard ALL such requests as fraudulent.


How to logon to my office PC

  • Use your School of Business username and password (It is usually your first initial and full last name and the password should have been provided by School of Business ITS or your Department Administrator). A valid logon will provide access to email, departmental resources, personal network storage, printers and internet access.


How to logon to a classroom PC

There are two logons that can use while teaching or using a classroom.

  • Use the generic /guest sbstudent account (Each classroom PC has this information on a sticker affixed to the PC)
  • Use your School of Business username and password (It is usually your first initial and full last name and the password should have been provided by School of Business ITS or your Department Administrator). This method is recommended as it permits access to network resources.

6.2. Departing the School

When a faculty or staff member opts to buy a laptop from  UCONN / School of Business the device must be purged of ALL UCONN software and Personal Identifiable Information (PII). In accordance with University Campus License Agreements and Device and Media Control Policy.

  • Rachel Greene will generate a quote for the purchase price for the laptop or device.
  • If the faculty/staff member wishes to proceed with the purchase that faculty/staff member will need to copy any information they wish to keep to backup media (Not on the device to purchase)
  • Confirmation that data was backed up to a different device by the end-user is required in the Request Body of a ticket.
  • Confirmation that the faculty/staff knows the device will be returned with NO OPERATING SYSTEM OR SOFTWARE OR DATA in the Request Body of a ticket.
  • ICT make the data inaccessible using one of the following mechanisms:
  • IOS and Android devices will be Hard Reset (Returned to Factory settings)
    • Apple Laptops and Desktop that are not running Intel processors
      • Data Wipe Disc (see Chris Buckridge)
  • The  purchase transaction and the signed Certification of Data Inaccessibility Form need to be recorded in KFS Capital Assets System. To use the on-ine KFS system, you must be a designated administrator for your department. Both forms must be completed before University Surplus can move computers/electronic media to Surplus, or process purchase of University assets that once contained UCONN data.

7. P:, Q:, & Other Network Drives

7.1. Data - What is P:\ and Q:\?

What is P:\ and Q:\


The School of Business provides two network storage locations for faculty, Ph.Ds. and staff to use for saving data. These network resources map as local drives on all Windows PCs that sign into the Business domain and are connected to the School of Business network. Simply click "Computer" and look in the "Network Location" section.

The P:\ is for "Private Data." Private data might include works in progress, publications, and other types of university-related data not meant for others to access.

The Q:\ is for departmental data. This data is accessible by coworkers and departmental colleagues only.

P:\ and Q:\ were selected to pay homage to an easy to remember colloquialism "Mind your P's and Q's." In the School of Business community it translates to "be mindful of where you place your data. P is for private and Q is Quasi-public or departmental."

7.2. Map a Network Drive Revised

Click Windows Start or the Windows Orb

Click Computer

Click Map network drive

In the Drive: dropdown choose a drive letter that will help identify the drive. It is recommended to map manually created network drives alphabetically in descending order. For example Z then Y and so on. This will leave A-G for removable drives and G though T for logon scripts.

In the Folder: field enter the server name and fully qualified domain name (FQDN) for the resource to connect to followed by a back slash "\" and the location of the files.

Select the option to Reconnect at logon

Select the option to Connect using different credentials only if the network resource you are connecting to is on a different domain or your logon credentials do not permit you to map the drive.

E.G. \\servername. FullyQualified.DomainName.edu

See the table below Credential Method 1 for examples.

Credential Method 1


Select the option to Remember

Some common examples for our environment are found on the table below:

 Domain / Resource

Example username and FQDN

School of Business

username@business.uconn.edu (PREFERRED)

*School of Engineering


University of Connecticut



username@ mywork.com


Credential Method 2

Some domains do not accept Username@FullyQualified.DomainName.edu as a username. Instead another standard can be used if the authentication fails. The syntax is as follows:

Domain / Resource

Example username and FQDN

School of Business


*School of Engineering

ad.engr.uconn.edu\username (PREFERRED)

University of Connecticut







7.3. File Path to Map P: and Q:

If you are off campus a VPN connection is required to access your P: or Q: drive

Please see How to Connect to the Virtual Private Network (VPN) with Windows 7 

One-campus users will need to connect to an Ethernet jack or UCONN-SECURE.


Click the Window's Start icon (Windows Orb).

In the "Search Programs and Files field" type or paste in the following


Press the enter key.

The School of Business Logon script will run on the PC you are using.



When prompted enter your School of Business userid and append @business.uconn.edu.

Enter your School of Business domain password.  Click Ok.


You may be prompted with a "Open File - Security Warning".  Click Open.


When the script finishes running, you will see something similar to the following:

Visit "My Computer" to see your mapped drives!

7.4. Resolve Problems Mapping a Network Drive

Click OK

Repeat the process for all adapters (recommended) or just for your wireless adapter and Local Area Connection

A reboot may be necessary for changes to fully implement.

7.5. What to Do When P: or Q: Drive Does Not Map Automatically

Please note: Access to P:\ and Q:\ require the user to be connected to the UCONN network through either an Ethernet patch cable connected to a data jack on a UConn campus or a connection to the UCONN-SECURE wireless network. Users off campus will need to initiate a VPN session first.

Double Click on My Computer

If the P:\ did not map click the Windows Desktop Start Button and search for and click Run in the Start Menu.


Enter \\business.uconn.edu\netlogon\SBLOGIN_2.2.3_DFS.vbs and click the OK button.
