July 18, 2007

Dear Sassy: I tried to assist a medical student in the lab - he needed help logging into the LSUHSC Medical School Curriculum page to get into Grade Book to view his grades. I was able to get there on the Reference desk but not in the lab. Why not? It kept asking me for a user name and password.

Dear Passed: Ahh, you have come across a difficulty with having "public" machines on the network. In order for students to log into the Curriculum page and Grade Book the students MUST user their email username/password in the lab. The catch is that they have to precede their username with LSUMC-MASTER\ just like when we log into OVID. For example mine would be username: "lsumc-master\aander" and then my email password. The reason you were able to get into the Curriculum page at the reference desk is because you were logged onto that machine and the Curriculum page used those credentials.
