Remote Initial Sign-in for CAMPUS Domain-joined Computers

When logging into a Windows CAMPUS domain-joined computer for the first time, a valid UVM network connection is needed to verify your NetID credentials. After this initial login, NetID credentials are cached locally on the computer. This local credential cache allows users to log into CAMPUS domain joined machines when off-campus, or when an internet connection is not available.

If you have never logged into your CAMPUS domain-joined computer and you are unable to visit campus physically, you can still sign in with your NetID credentials by following the steps below.

Sign-in Steps

Local Account Access Required

While any local account will work, most users will have a Local Administrator account, signing in with .\administrator (note the period and backslash) as the username, and the password they or their IT Support Team set up.

  1. Sign into using your local account username and password. If you don’t know your password, contact your IT Support Team, who may be able to assist.
  2. Connect to UVM’s VPN using Cisco AnyConnect.
  3. Switch user in Windows by holding the Windows Key and pressing L ( + L).
  4. Sign-in with your NetID and password.

Troubleshooting

I'm having issues connecting to the UVM VPN.

Access to UVM’s VPN is by request. If do not have access to the VPN, request it at go.uvm.edu/vpnrequest.

If you already have access to the VPN, make sure you are connected to the internet and are following the steps detailed in the Cisco AnyConnect Knowledge Base guide.

I don't know the password for my local account.

Contact your IT Support Team, who may know the password for your Local Administrator account.

Use the IT Support Lookup to determine who is your dedicated support.

I don't see the username and password fields for my NetID and password

Your computer must be domain joined to sign in with your NetID and password. If you don’t see Sign in to: CAMPUS beneath the login fields, you are not on the CAMPUS domain. Please contact your IT Support Team.
