COM Webnew Account Initialization
Some COM computing services require BU accounts to go through the “WebNew” process first. WebNew is what BU’s IS&T department calls the process of converting a Kerberos account into an Active Directory account. As a user your account will seem the same regardless of your WebNew status. The only difference is that you’ll have access to some services you previously did not.
If you have worked at BU for many years you may have to complete the WebNew process just to gain access to COM’s Mac Labs or use COM’s WiFi. There is no harm in using the WebNew tool multiple times so please complete the process again if you are unsure. The WebNew process involves filling out a short form and should only take a minute.
