Conference Registration Directions

When outside (non-NAU) conferences or events come to NAU, the conference personnel will contact NAU about their needs. When the conference attendees need to have network connectivity they will let their NAU contact person know (usually someone in the sponsoring department, at duBois, or the Union). This contact person should then call the Solution Center to arrange to have connectivity for the conference.

Setting up a conference requires these steps:

  1. Someone in the sponsoring department, at duBois, or the Union needs to be responsible for registering the attendees MAC addresses. Anyone with a JAN or DANA account can manage a conference.
  2. Setting up the conference (see the steps and screen snaps below).
  3. Having the user (whoever the conference manager is) register the conference computers' MAC addresses--either before the conference, if they have the MAC addresses sent ahead; or when the computers arrive on campus, perhaps as part of the conference registration process.

Open up diamond. Click on DNS/DHCP Maintenance. Log in.

Select Conference Maintenance from the menu on the left.

Next you will need to add the people to the Registerer UID that will be responsible for registering the computers as they come on campus, (the hosting department may want several staff members to be able to register computer MAC addresses for conference attendees).
