FSB Technology Policies

FSB IT is dedicated to providing the highest level of service possible to the students, faculty, and staff of the Farmer School of Business. In doing so, we have developed some guidelines for technology resources to help answer some of the questions regarding our policies. Please reference the policy pages as well as the Student Help or Faculty & Staff Help areas of our site to find answers to some of your technology questions.

Backups

  • FSB servers are backed up nightly
  • Files on your office desktops/laptops are not backed up and cannot be easily restored.It’s always best to save your files in I drive in the server. Not saving your files to your I drive can lead to unrecovered files.
  • A deleted file can restored for up to 30 days after deletion. (If the file is on the I drive only)

Accounts

Login accounts to your laptops/desktops are created by Miami University central IT.

Password

MUnet passwords are maintained by Miami University central IT and can only be reset by Miami University help desk. You need to visit the help desk in person with a photoID to have your password reset.

Security

Numerous steps are taken to ensure the security of data on our network, but any system should be considered vulnerable and able to be compromised. Our servers are physically secured in FSB 2036 and no student has been assigned a key that will allow entry.
