One username but two accounts

You have two accounts:

  1. one for PCs operated by the IT Center and for common university services (AD account), and
  2. another for PCs and services operated by the Department of Computer Science.

The accounts share the same username but they are really two different accounts. However, the passwords should be exactly same on both accounts.
