CALS Administrative Network (CALSNet)
What is it?
The CALS Administrative Network is a network of servers, workstations
(desktops, laptops) & peripherals (such as printers) that are
connected through network interface cards (NIC) to the campus internet.
Our network is designed to facilitate file, application and printer
sharing for CALS Administration units in a secured environment. From
our network we can also access many other servers & networks across
the University and beyond. For example, if you have been given access
to WiscCal Plus (our calendar/scheduling software), you will be accessing
a separate server from our local file server to retrieve the calendar
data. This is done directly from your workstation.
All administrative units within CALS Administration. These offices
are located in Agriculture Hall, Ag Deans Residence & Biological
Systems Engineering. A complete listing of the units can be found here.
How do I get Access to the Network?
If you are a new employee, your supervisor should have
prepared for your arrival by filling out the CALSNet
Authorization form. This can either be filled out electronically
and printed, or printed out and completed by hand. After the appropriate
supervisor signature is obtained, the form should be returned to Charlene
Krembs in Agriculture Hall. You will then be assigned a CALSNet ID (Novell)
and password for the file server and accounts for any other systems
What are the Network Drivers?
||Your Home directory; only you have access to this drive.
||Your Group directory; this is a shared directory by your work
group (i.e. International Programs, Dean's Office, Research
Division) Only people in your work group have access to this directory.
||The lanshare directory is a common shared area for all users of
our CALS Network. Anyone with a logon id to our file server has
access to this directory.
If you are a Mac customer, you will have access to the same directories
as above but since "drive mappings" do not exist on a Mac,
you'll see these differently:
|CALS.Data: xxx folder where xxx = your logon id
||Your Home folder. Only you have access to this folder.
||Your workgroup folder. This is shared by your workgroup (i.e. IAP,
Dean's Office, Research) Only people in your workgroup have
access to this folder.
||This is a common shared folder for all customers on our LAN. Anyone
with a logon in to our file server have access to this directory
How do I change my password?
