Cloud QuickStart

Good morning!

If you haven't had a coffee - please go and have one now - you are going to be logging into your new cloud system.

Important to remember: Like with any upgrade things will be different, but that's why we are here: to make sure your transition is as smooth as possible. At the end of this document is a "Niggly Issues Sheet" which you should use to write down anything of concern, anything that you believe is missing, or any little errors that pop up. By collating it on the sheet we can go through them much quicker before the day's end. Of course if it's a show stopper, give us a yell.

1. Logon to any computer with default cloud Username

Once the migration is complete all desktop computers will be identical. You will need to logon as the cloud user.

  1. Enter Username: .\cloud  [the dot slash before the username is important. Note it's a back slash .\ not a forward slash /.]
  2. Enter Password: cloud

2. Launch your Cloud Connection

Launch your Cloud Connection

Your cloud connection is just one icon called AEHO Remote Desktop. Once you launch this icon, you will be connected to the virtual desktop in the cloud.

3. IF this window pops up - dismiss the warning, IF not jump to next step
