BeyondTrust is a software solution to allow you to perform certain administrative tasks without being an actual administrator on your computer. To request the use of BeyondTrust (for office or research lab), the faculty member should e-mail email@example.com.
Software can be installed from the L (\\mne-fs.coeaccess.psu.edu\LabInstalls) or T (\\engrinfo.coeaccess.psu.edu\BTInstalls) drives. T contains may common pieces of software used across the College while L is for temporary upload and installs. The faculty member and their designated "Lab Admin(s)" have access to write to the L:\<labinitials> folder. The L drive is automatically cleared of any file left there more than 7 days.
