PC network system
The service group PC-Verbundsystem of the Hochschulrechenzentrum (HRZ) deals with the integration of virtual and desktop PCs into a server environment, in which essentially file, print and plot services are made available in a fully automated way in connection with software provision - we have summarised this combination of services under the term “PC-Verbundsystem “. For convenient use of all services, integration of these integration of these PCs into the PC network system is necessary. 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 Jade University network via LAN connection. Therefore, participation in the PC network system is not intended for notebooks , you can alternatively use our virtual desktops).
As a rule, you have to re-install your desktop PC in order to integrate it into the PC group system. Furthermore, special authorisations are required for integration, which is why you cannot carry out this process independently. Therefore, you should make an appointment with the PC-Service of the HRZ to have us carry out this procedure.
