Adaxes New Feature – Disable Accounts

 

SAIT has added another feature to Adaxes, our Account Management System: Disable Accounts

Account authorizers may now disable student and staff accounts at any time. This will allow for better response time when users are no longer employed at the University. You may access the new feature by going to https://accounts.sa.uconn.edu and selecting your department.

Under Account Management there will be two sections, Disable Staff and Disable Student. You may sort and select multiple users.

 

Users will be marked with the adaxes-disabledsymbol indicating they are disabled.

Users marked with the adaxes-expired symbol are expired accounts. If the user no longer works for the department you may disable them as well.

 

If there are any questions please contact SAIT.

Renew Student Accounts Online!

 

Starting December 2, 2016, department authorizers will be able to renew student accounts online.

SAIT will continue to send spreadsheets to departments with a listing of student accounts that will expire. Instead of marking the spreadsheet and sending it back, please go to this website and renew the accounts. Once an account is renewed, a confirmation email will be sent.

MBAM Upgrade Monday, November 14

SAIT has scheduled an upgrade for Microsoft Bitlocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM) from version 1.0 to the newest version, 2.5. This upgrade addresses compatibility issues with current workstation hardware and includes support for new operating systems, such as Windows 10. The upgrade will occur on Monday, November 14, 2016, will be unnoticeable to end users and cause no interruption of service.

What is MBAM?

MBAM is a central tool used by SAIT to provide enterprise support for management of encryption on workstations. This behind-the-scenes software allows SAIT to ensure that Student Affairs workstations are encrypted and their recovery key is backed up to our servers. This results in our end users having the ability to work with the assurance that their university data is protected.
