Service Accounts

CTS does not create service accounts for users. If a research group requires a service account to log on to shared computers with, the group's primary investigator (PI) may request an additional domain service accounts from the Drexel IT Accounts team. Once the account is created, the PI will have to pick up the account via CAMS ( and set a unique password.

Service Account Passwords

Any password set on a service account should be unique and should not be used elsewhere. If a group is planning to have a workstation remain logged in under the service account, please keep in mind that there will be no way to track specifically which user modified data. Service accounts will not be granted administrative rights to any computer resources.
