Active Directory Network Storage

ADNS is a file sharing resource, through which users can store their files on an ACCC file server. This service provides users with highly redundant, highly available, fully backed-up, lifetime storage of personal or departmental files.

This resource is made available to user whose departments have requested disk space through ADNS. Disk space is offered in increments of 10GB for an one-time fee of $200 per 10GB. The files are stored on a Windows file server, and users can access their files from multiple computers.

What do I do when I get the warning message that my KeyClient is obsolete?

You must be connected to the UIC campus network using the UIC VPN to access ADDA from outside the UIC campus. The ACCC distributes preconfigured OpenVPN client software for this purpose.

If you are not connected to the internet, you will not be able to access ADDA software unless you have checked out licenses for each application using KeyCheckout.

To check out licenses, install and use the KeyCheckout program. If you already have the KeyAccess client installed, note that you need to uninstall that before installing KeyCheckout. You cannot install it over the basic KeyAccess client.

Here is how to use KeyCheckout:
