How do I change my password?

Last updated: March 28th, 2017 03:23 PM

There are two ways to change your SSO account password. Do either of the following:

1) Use the kpasswd command from a Windows command prompt or while connected to an Unix machine via ssh. You will be prompted to enter your old password. After you enter your old password, press return. You will then prompted to enter your new password twice with the second time being a verification of the first entry.


2) Log into a Windows machine that is connected to the "CS" domain. From the desktop, press CONTROL-ALT-DELETE and then select "Change a password". Enter your old password once and your new password twice in the appropriate fields. Finally, click the right arrow to finalize your password change.
