facman$ aka the "G" drive
The network directory called facman$ is accessible and used by most facilities staff though it is possible to lock down some of its subdirectories to only authorized people. Access to facman$ is provided by our Technology Department . To gain access a supervisor must send a request via email to the [[support, Technology Support Center]].
Once access is granted, the user must map a drive from their PC to the facman$ location. The most commonly used drive letter is "G".
If you have any problems mapping to facman$, please contact Bobbi Rawlings, Systems Administrator through [[borawl, email]], or at 221-7835.
