Troubleshooting

I can not log in to the server

All servers require you to login with your User ID (e.g z1234567) and zPass. If you are sure you are using the correct credentials:

 

  • Double check you are using the correct server address

  • Check whether your zPass has been locked or has expired by going to the UNSW Identity Manager website

  • Check your email for notifications of server maintenance down time

  • Log a Incident ticket with the UNSW Service Desk on 9385 1333 or using the UNSW Service Desk Self-service website
