Active Directory, Special Authorizations

For OU Administrators: Information on authentication and authorization with Active Directory.

As part of the Active Directory service, there are several special authorizations for servers that can be performed, but require AD Admin approval.

DHCP Authorization

The preferred method is to use the Technology Services IP Management Service.

Legacy Windows-based DHCP servers require special authorization in Active Directory. To request this authorization, you must email the name of the AD computer account to adsupport@illinois.edu.

Network Policy Server (NPS) Authorization

Windows-based NPS (RADIUS, etc.) servers require special authorization in Active Directory. To request this authorization, you must email the name of the AD computer account to adsupport@illinois.edu.

Terminal Server Authorization

Windows-based Terminal Servers require special authorization in Active Directory by placement into a special domain-wide "Terminal Server License Servers" group. To request this authorization, you must email the name of the AD computer account to adsupport@illinois.edu.

NOTE: You are required to purchase a Terminal Services client-access license (TSCAL) from Webstore. (webstore.illinois.edu) This purchase should be complete before requesting authorization.
