CS Account Password

You have only one username and password to log into any of the CS computer systems. So you use the same username and password to login to your desktop as you do to login to a server, regardless of operating system. This CS account has the same username as your UVA NetBadge account. However it has a different password, unique to the CS Department. So your NetBadge password will not work for a CS account.

From the Web

Use the Password Reset Tool to reset your CS account password. Note: this cannot be used to change a new account's temporary password.

From Linux/Windows

If you have a Windows desktop, you can change your password by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del and select “Change Password”.

Otherwise the simplest way to change your password is to log in to one of our Linux servers and run the command passwd from your shell.

abc1de@portal01 ~ $ passwd
Changing password for user abc1de.
Current Password: 
New password: 
Retype new password: 
passwd: all authentication tokens updated successfully.

To log in to a Linux server from Windows, you must first install an SSH (secure shell) application and use it in a terminal window.

See this article on Windows SSH clients for more information.
