First-Time Setup

  1. After double-clicking the Archivist Toolkit icon, you will be prompted to enter database connection information. Enter the following exactly:



    To copy and paste the Connection URL: jdbc:sqlserver://vela3.esuad.ds:1433;databaseName=AT
    The userID is: archivist
    The password is: WAW2013!
    Database Type: Microsoft SQL Server

  2. Once entered, click "Save", then "OK".
  3. You will be presented with a login prompt. Enter your credentials. The userID will be the same as your BuzzIn account. However, the password is your E-number (ex. E12345678). You should change the password after logging in to Archivist Toolkit.
  4. Now you can begin using Archivist Toolkit. Next time you connect to Archivist Toolkit (after logging in to SkyLab), you will only be prompted for the Archivist Toolkit userID and password. Reminder: SkyLab uses your BuzzIn userID and password, but Archivist Toolkit is whatever you change it to in step 3. They do not sync
