How To Change Your Password

Important: When your account is newly activated you are issued a login password. This is meant as a temporary password and should be changed immediately.

The standard way to change the password is through a login terminal. This can be doen either from sflogin0 or swlogin1.

The command to use is "passwd":

$ passwd
passwd: Changing password for ...
Enter existing login password:
New Password:
Re-enter new Password:
passwd: password successfully changed for ...
$

Please note that the password entry will not appear on the screen, so it may appear that there is no response. Just continue to type in the passwords. If the two entries match a response will be issued.
