command and follow the prompts to change your password.

Active Directory accounts on rockhopper/opus/Linux labs

For logins to the rockhopper and opus servers, and also in the Linux labs, UNIX passwords are now synchronized with Windows (hawkdom2/hawkmail) passwords through Active Directory authentication. When you change your Windows password, your UNIX password will also be changed. To change your password right now, use the web form at http://www.monmouth.edu/resources/campus_technology/bluehawk/default.asp .
