-This Wiki has information on nearly everything we do - all the computing services and policies provided by the UVA Computer Science Department ​(not UVA's ITS). There are also answers to some of the most common ​support requests we receive. If you do not find your answer here, please send mail to <​cshelpdesk@virginia.edu>​. ​+This Wiki has information on the computing services and policies provided by the UVA Computer Science Department.

-**Do you need to reset your Computer Science Department ​account password?:​** Use the [[https://​www.cs.virginia.edu/​PasswordReset|Password Reset Tool]]+When you start at UVA, you get a userid (something like "//​abc1de//"​),​ which you use to access general UVA sites like Collab or Netbadge systems. When you get a CS Dept. account, you will have an identical userid ("//​abc1de//"​),​ //but a different password than the one you use for general UVA systems//. When the CS account is created for you, you will receive an email with a temporary password that needs to be changed upon first login. See //New Account Information//​ below.

 +====== New Account Information ======
 +
 +Welcome! ​ Your account for the Computer Science network has been created, and you have been emailed the account information.  ​
 +
 +This account is for computer systems within the CS Dept. It is NOT for general UVA systems like Collab or other general UVA systems. Even though your user id is the same as your NetBadge user id used for UVA systems, //your CS account password is only for CS Dept. systems//.
 +
 +You have been issued a temporary password, so the first time you log in you will be asked to set a new password. The easiest way to change your temporary password is to open a “terminal” window on your laptop or desktop, and use “ssh” to “portal.cs.virginia.edu”,​ for example “//ssh abc1de@portal.cs.virginia.edu//​”. You will then be asked for a new password, which you should set to a password you typically use. You will then use this password to login to all CS network systems. ​
 +
 +If you set your CS password, then forget it, you can reset it below.
