Accessing The Network From Windows

When logging on to a PC you will be using a program called Novell Zenworks. Once logged in, a script will run, enabling you to have your drives mapped. Access to drives will be based on the permissions you have been allocated. The automatic drives are as follows:

  • H:\ for your Personal Drive
  • S:\ for the Jenner Hill Drive

If you require access to other drives please contact the IT Manager. If you are unsure which drives you should be accessing, then please speak to your Line Manager or Supervisor.
