Domain Management and AD Usernames (Active Directory)

Features

Active Directory (AD) is a directory service that Microsoft developed for the Windows domain networks. It is included in most Windows Server operating systems as a set of processes and services. Initially, Active Directory was only in charge of centralized domain management. Starting with Windows Server 2008, however, Active Directory became an umbrella title for a broad range of directory-based identity-related services.

TWU user accounts are either pioneer (for students) and fs (for faculty and staff). Active directory is the primary system TWU uses to create usernames.
