titleGetting Access to a Drive
  • If access has not yet been requested for you, you can submit a request yourself in Permissions Manager. The submitted request will need to be approved by any one of the authorizers, who are automatically notified when you submit the request. When the authorizer has handled your request, you will be automatically notified via an email from Permissions Manager.

  • After being granted access to a drive, you must restart your computer before mapping a drive to it. If you are denied access to a drive, please restart your computer and try mapping it again.

  • Authorizers can grant access to users via the Permissions Manager. Authorizers do not automatically have access, but they can grant access to themselves.

    • If you are remote you must be connected to either the CORP VPN ( or RES VPN ( Both RDS6 and BMIISI project drives are accessible through either VPN.
