As a privilege of membership, UCC members have access to accounts on our machines.
Use of accounts
An 'account' gives its owner access to our machines (well, those that require authentication). These include UNIX, Linux, Windows and Mac OS machines. We use a combination of NFS and Samba to provide two sets of common home directories.
Changing Your Password
To change your password from a Linux or UNIX machine, use the command passwd. To change your password from a Windows machine, press Ctrl-Alt-Delete and select Change Password.
(In the past, changing your password was actually really hard, but thanks to the hard work of several dedicated wheel members, that's no longer the case.)
