Forgot your password? (password resets)
CISER cannot look up your password for you. If you have a currently active account and forget your password you may reset it yourself. When you click the Reset Password Now button, you'll need to:
- Identify yourself via CUWebLogin.
- On the CISER Password Reset page, follow the instructions. If you cannot see the words in the recaptcha display clearly, click the top blue button until you find a display that you can read.
- You will receive an email containing an encrypted link. Click on the encrypted link to get to your temporary password.
- When you log-on to a research server, use this temporary password. You will be prompted to change your password at that time.
Note: Once you change your password, your temporary password will no longer work. If you forget your password again, you'll need to reset it again.
Reset usage limits more...
- Up to 4 times in a 2-week period.
- Up to 2 failed attempts in a 2-day period.
- Only available for users with a valid Cornell netid.
- Password resets will not work on accounts that have expired.
Password policies more...
- It is against Cornell's Abuse of Computers and Network Systems, and CISER's policy as well, for you to share your account and password with any other person!
- Please do not form a password by appending a digit to a word--this type of password is easily guessed.
- Never leave your password in plain text (unencrypted) in any file in your home directory. Passwords stored in this way are easily stolen.
When to change your password more...
- Any time you think yours has been compromised, or when you get a message that your password is about to expire.
- NOT when you have current jobs running! In order to prevent account lockouts, check to be sure that you have ended your jobs and logged off all of the research servers first. Disconnected sessions on other servers, created under you old password, will generate periodic account lockouts.
How to change your password more...
- Log-off of all disconnected and/or active sessions.
- Log-on to a research server.
- Press the <Ctrl><Alt><End> keys together
- Select Change a password...
