Administrator accounts for Professors and Staff

NOTE: Professors & Staff users no longer use the generic "useradmin" account.

Information
In order to have administrator privileges on your professor or staff work computer, you must use an administrator account. This account will allow you to install software onto your computer and unlock services to make changes to your local computer settings. Administrator accounts are named after your first and last name initials plus "admin" (ex. ABadmin). If If you don't have an administrator account you can Open a Ticket to set it up for the first time. Once we have set up your account, you will be given a temporary password for the first time you log in. You must change this password right away.

Already have an account? If you already have an administrator account but can't remember the password, you can Open a Ticket to request to reset the password.

First time set up
To set up your administrator account, log in with your new administrator user name and temporary password (xxAdmin).

Once you are logged in, open "System Preferences"



Click "Accounts" located in the fourth row under "System"



Your next screen will look like this:
Click "Change Password" and change your administrator password to the same password you use for your "firstname.lastname" account.

Important: Do not use your administrator account for regular tasks; only use it to change locked preferences or to install software onto your computer--things that require an administrator credentials.

Note: Your firstname.lastname account and your xxAdmin account are not connected. If you change the password in your "firstname.lastname" account, it will not change your administrator account (xxAdmin) password. Jtech recommends that if you change your "firstname.lastname" account password that you also change your administrator account (xxAdmin) to the same password.


If you forget your password, contact Jtech to have it reset.
