Account Management Tools for
Computer Science Systems

Note: Your computer science user ID is your University NetID. You must have a University NetID before you can activate a computer science account. Here's the Univeristy's tool for activating your NetID:

Computer science systems use passwords that are separate from your University password. You can make them the same, but it is somewhat better from a security point of view if you use different passwords.

NOTE on cron jobs: For systems that use these accounts, cron jobs need special attention. If you're using cron, and you want your jobs to access files in your home directory, you must use "kgetcred -r" on each host where you're going to use cron. See "man kgetcred" for more information.
