Several Dallas Makerspace resources are accessed through your Active Directory (AD) login account.


You will need to create/enable your Active Directory (AD) login account through our billing system (WHMCS).
NOTE: Only members with an account in WHMCS will be able to do this, at this time.

  • Log in at: https://accounts.dallasmakerspace.org/accounts/clientarea.php
  • In the top-right corner, click the drop down menu that says "Hello, YOURFIRSTNAME!"
  • Click "Edit Account Details"
  • Take note of your username near the bottom. That is the username of your LDAP/AD account (once created). DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CHANGE YOUR USERNAME!

  • Click "Save Changes" at the bottom, even if you made no changes.
  • Go back to the top-right corner ("Hello, YOURFIRSTNAME!") and click your name on the dropdown menu again
  • Click "Change Password" and enter in your current password in all three fields. At this time, special characters are not supported.
