About IRIS Passwords
Currently, there is just one password you must set in order to use the various IRIS services.
- Windows/LDAP: (EECS.BERKELEY.EDU Windows Domain) This is used to log in to Windows machines which are members of the eecs domain, such as WINTERM, and most Linux servers as well, such a login.eecs.berkeley.edu. As of early 2014, this password also is used wherever you are asked for your EECS LDAP password, such as various web-authenticated services and forms.
To set your initial passwords or reset a forgotten password, please vist this website. You may also bring a picture ID to the Helpdesk where they can assist you in setting your passwords. Consult the Password Policies and Guidelines page for more information about IRIS password types and requirements.
Note: Some research groups run their own NIS domains, which may require that you set additional passwords. Contact your group’s system administrator(s) for more information or to set such passwords.
If you have trouble, the Helpdesk can help you change your Windows/LDAP password.
