Activate your Campus Network and Printing Account

In Spring, 2010, Windward CC upgraded its server system.

Students must go to to activate their Windward computing account. At that website, students will first authenticate to their UH userid and then choose a password for their account on the student server. Their Windward username will be the same as their UH username, and their account should be activated within 10 minutes of choosing a password. Students that have forgotten their UH username or password can visit the Computing Services staff in the Library Learning Commons for assistance in activating their Windward account.

Student Files From the Old Server

Students were advised to copy off any files they wanted from their old ACS2 server account before the end of the Fall 2009 semester. While old student accounts are being disabled after January 7, we’ll help students retrieve any critical files they still need if they contact us for assistance via the Computing HelpLine (235-7314,

Faculty Accounts

When logging on to classroom and lab PCs using your new faculty/staff account, you need to preface your username with “facstaff\” (for example, “facstaff\tempxx”) so that the system will know not to look on the student server for your account.

Faculty Files From the Old Server

For Faculty, files that were previously created on the old ACS2 academic server are still there. You can continue working with those files as before using your office or home computer until you and Bryan Tokuda coordinate migrating your files to your new server accounts. Bryan is focusing on the heaviest server users first and will get to everyone in time. If you’re anxious to transfer your files, feel free to contact him to arrange an earlier time to do that.

Your personal folder on the new student server is located at smb://$ and is automatically mapped as the F: drive on classroom/lab PCs. The “Courses” and “Groups” folders on the student server can be accessed at smb:// which is automatically mapped as the M: drive on classroom/lab PCs. Your personal folder on the new faculty/staff server is located at smb://$.

Any files that are downloaded or saved using a classroom/lab PC or Mac will go onto the local hard disk by default. Be sure to explicitly save files to your USB flash drive or to your personal server folder if you want to keep them.
