Student accounts expire when the student is no longer registered in the College of Engineering. Expiration occurs at 8:00 A.M. on the day following the last day the University processes registration adjustments(add/drop). The only exceptions to account expiration are no accounts expire over the summer and accounts do not expire for students on coop who have officially registered with the coop office on or before the last day of late registration. Student accounts that have expired are deleted at the time of expiration. Information stored in the account is not recoverable.
UTAD is a domain that was created before Fall 2001 semester began. It uses the new Windows 2000 Active Directory to maintain its authentication list of valid users and computers. The acronym UTAD is derived from the words University of Toledo Active Directory. A UTAD account is created upon registration. Students can activate this account at the Computer Lab in the Student Union.
To mount your UTAD drive, begin by logging into the main UTAD page and clicking on "View your UTAD account information." This will display your "Home Directory on UTAD Domain." This is the path you will be connecting to. Now go to Mounting Network Drives and complete the process.
Student email addresses are always of the form email@example.com.

If you are a new Engineering student and are registered for classes, then your account will be created shorty after you have registered for classes.
All account cards have to be picked up from NI 1013. Please check the help desk schedule for timings. Only one permanent account will be permitted per user. Accounts must be periodically renewed. ECC reserves the right to refuse or withdraw access to it's computing and network at any time due to conditions which may warrant such action.
The following technique is helpful to verify that you've logged out of machines and to check that nobody else is using your account. To see where you are currently logged on, type the following after logging into the unix server:
who | grep pts | grep username
where username is your login ID. This command will show all currently active connections. If you have misplaced any articles in the lab, please check the Lost and Found boxes in the Computer labs. All other articles are turned in to Sandy Stewart at NI 5006 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
UTNet is provided free of charge to current UT students, faculty and staff by EIT. UTNet allows you to access the Internet and allows you to connect to your university computer account. Proceed to the UTNET web site. Once you are connected to UTNet, you can access you engineering account
|ssh homedir.eng.utoledo.edu||Provides remote access to your engineering account.|
|net use||Used to mount your engineering account to a drive on the Windows machine. [This can only be used for computers in the Engineering domain - eng.utoledo.edu/ni.utoledo.edu]|
An engineering email alias has the form FirstName.LastName@eng.utoledo.edu This alias points to your engineering email account.
ECC does not change user/account names. To have the first and/or last name that is associated with an account changed:
It is the responsibility of the user to whom the account is issued to keep his/her password secret. Furthermore, each user should change their passwords often, at least every few months.
Each user is provided a print quota of 2000 units printed pages each semester they pay the Engineering Technology fee. 1 print quota unit is equivalent to 1 side of a monochrome (black & white) page. Each user is responsible to ensure printable material is sent to the printers. Errors in printing improper file types are at the user's expense. All pending jobs are purged after the print service is restored.
Print quota can be increased by increments of 50 units for $5.00, cash only. Visit the Help Desk in NI1013 to purchase print quota. Any print quota remaining at the end of the semester, up to a maximum of 2000 units, is carried forward and added to the print quota for the next semester. Print quota is carried over the summer and for any semester when a student is offically registered with the co-op office as being on co-op that semester. When a student graduates or fails to register for a Fall or Spring semester, all unused print quota units are forfeited and there is no refund or credit for unused print quota units.
Check your current printquota by logging in to an engineering server and typing the command: printquota
Although user accoounts are backed up nightly, ECC does not guarantee the availability of files -- if you consider your data precious, back up your own data.
