Two different networks / two different passwords
In my current school I look after 2 different (completely separate) networks. 1 is a managed service provided by a government led scheme here in N.Ireland, and the other network is our own internal (legacy) network.
The usernames are the same for pupils on both networks, but the passwords cannot be synched across the two networks - nor can the password be set to "never expire" on the managed service network. I can however set the password to "never expire" on our own internal network.
The pupils require access to both systems unfortunately - the majority of subject classes are taught using our internal network equipment, but occassionally classes have to use the managed service network, and this is where the problems arise primarily - they seem incapable of differentiating between the 2 different networks, despite obvious equipment differences / log on prompt differences & even different building locations!
I am constantly fighting a losing battle against persistent password changes / locked out accounts due to numerous times trying incorrect passwords - usually they are trying their password for 1 system on the other etc.
Anyone have a similar set up in their school (involuntarily or otherwise!) & wish to share their experiences on how to eliviate this confusion?
