CS Account Password

You now have only one username and password to log into CS computer systems. There is no longer a separate password for Linux and Windows systems.

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.

ktm5j@portal01 ~ $ passwd
Changing password for user ktm5j.
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 obtain an SSH (secure shell) client.

See this article on Windows SSH clients for more information.
