ISA Server Error
If you receive a red error message about ISA Server, either you have entered your credentials incorrectly OR your account has been locked.
- Check that you are entering the correct credentials.
- If your account has been locked (usually due to unsuccessful login attempts into O-Space or Otis College email), try unlocking your account with the Password Manager in the Dashboard (my.otis.edu).
- Students - technicians in the Computer Lab (Ahmn 401) can reset your password for you.
- Faculty and Staff - contact Information Systems at firstname.lastname@example.org
Important: If you change your password and have synced your Otis College email on another computer (e.g. you personal laptop) or on a tablet or smartphone, you must update those settings immediately on all devices. Otherwise, the other device(s) will try to log into your account with the old password and lockout both passwords.
Current students, faculty, and staff, quick access to O-Space is available through the Otis College Dashboard.
- Enrolled Students: X-Number + Password
