The department uses FSUIDs/LDAP for a centralized authentication system. This allow for one common password to be used across all of the desktops, webpages, and clusters that we support. However many systems don't understand how to change passwords correctly in LDAP, so if you use a local utility to change your password it probably won't work correctly.
To change your password please follow the link bellow.
The department supports three default login shells:
csh tcsh bash
