Administrator Access on Pacific Owned Computers
By default, all Pacific university employees have user level access on the Pacific-owned computers they utilize. Actions that require administrative access, such as changing protected settings or installing software, can be achieved by contacting the Helpdesk.
Obtaining Admin Access
Employees can obtain administrative access on Pacific owned computers under the following circumstances:
- The employee makes a request to the Helpdesk.
- The employee is listed as the person responsible for that machine, or this request has the okay of the employee responsible for that machine.
- The employee signs the Admin Access Agreement.
- The employee is up to date on all cybersecurity and complaince training required by their position or access.
Requests may be denied if a supervisor asks that the employee not be given access, or if the employee has been the source of security incidents in the past.
