3 CITES Accounts For CS105 you will use 4 CITES accounts: – NetID (or Kerberos)- the most important, this account lets you administer all your other accounts. – Active Directory (AD) – access to NetFiles and Compass – CITES Express Email – your campus email. – CITES ICS (Instructional Computer Sites) – access to this and other CITES labs. Changing your password for one may not affect the others! You can make all passwords the same (just don’t tell CITES I told you). CS105 Fall 20093

4 Logging in to ICS Computers The lab computers use your CITES ICS (Instructional Computing Sites) password. If you do not know your ICS password, try your NetID password or your email password and make sure “Workstation Only” is not checked. If you cannot log in, please raise your hand and your TA will log you in. Once logged in: – Open an internet browser and go to this web address: – Click “Login with your NetID…”, then log in with your NetID password. You need to set the password for “Campus Active Directory (AD) password” and “CITES Instructional Computing Sites” (see screenshot on the next slide) – Enter your new password and then click “Set Passwords” – Do not attempt to re-login as yourself. Your new password may take 30 minutes to register. Try again at the end of lecture and ask for assistance if it still does not work. CS105 Fall 20094
