2019/08/26 - Action Required: New Self Service Password Management
Attention all users:
What does this mean?
You must setup your password recovery options in the SOM portal to use forgotten password features. Options include:
- Office phone
- Secondary/Mobile phone
- Secondary/Personal email
- Security questions
We believe the SOM system is more user-friendly and easier to use. It should be your primary method for resetting/unlocking your password as we CANNOT change your password without verifying your identity. Please visit now to get setup, it’s quick and easy.
2019/07/31 - Attention VPN (Cisco AnyConnect) users ONLY!
***Please do not confuse VPN with the “VMware Horizon Remote desktop”, they are not the same thing.***
We have seen a rise in the number of tickets on remote work computers with regards to failed logins and/or problems connecting to the H and I drives when used off-site. We have revised our VPN instructions page clarifying the correct steps that must be taken to ensure your device is always using your current SOM username and password as well as mapping your H and I drives correctly.
If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. If you have any problems, please enter a ticket for assistance.
