The service group PC network system of the computing centre (HRZ) deals with the integration of virtual and desktop PCs in a server environment, in which essentially file, print and plot services in connection with software provision are provided fully automatically - We have summarized this combination of services under the term “PC network system”. For the convenient use of all services, it is necessary to integrate these PCs into the PC network system. The integration offers the following advantages:
Our virtual desktops are always part of the PC network system.
Desktop PCs with Microsoft Windows 10 - 64-bit can be integrated into the PC network system, these must currently be connected to the network of the Jade University via an Ethernet connection. Therefore, participation in the PC network system is not intended for notebooks (here you can alternatively use our virtual desktops).
As a rule, you have to set up your desktop PC again to integrate it into the PC network system. Special permissions are also required for integration, which is why you cannot do this process on your own. Therefore, you should make an appointment with the PC technology of the HRZ so that we can carry out this process.
