Linux - Password Reset

Computer Science uses a standalone Linux FreeIPA user authentication system. While the FreeIPA system shares your Calvin username, an unique password is assigned for this account. You use this account and password to access all Linux-based systems for Computer Science. This account is also used for other various systems such as RStudio.

You can use this form to reset your password if you know your existing password.
