Configure and Administer SCS Equipment

Before attaching any computing equipment, including computers, printers, and any other networked devices, to the SCS Computing Facilities network, it must be first registered. All equipment on this network must obey the SCS Computing Facilities Network use policies.

The forms below may be used to register/request services for new equipment, update services for existing equipment, request to have new operating systems installed/reinstalled on equipment and request installation of Virtual Machine (VM) on desktop/laptop hosts. There are monthly support charges related to those services an asset is subscribed to.

Please note, you will prompted to authenticate prior to filling out the form. You may authenticate with your SCS or Andrew credentials.

Register equipment for services Search / Update / Remove equipment
Use this form to register services for equipment that is not currently receiving services.                 Use this form to search for existing equipment using asset number, hostname, contact username, or other equipment information in order to register, update, or remove services.                 
Request Virtual Machine Installation Replace existing equipment
Use this form to request installation of Virtual Machine (VM) on existing equipment.                 Use this form if you have an older piece of hardware that is going to be replaced with a newer system. It will guide you through retiring the old system and configuring the new asset as its replacement.                 

Each of the options above generates a specially formatted mail message which is sent to SCS Computing Facilities to be processed. If you do not receive notification that we received your request within 2 working days, please contact the SCS Help Desk at to check on its status.
