For the Fall 2016 semester, the MGK Mac Lab machines (lab8) moved to Active Directory authentication, replacing our LDAP setup. This transition should go unnoticed for most users; however, manual intervention may be required for some user accounts.
Your password for the Windows and *nix (Linux and MacOS) machines were different (although you may have set them to the same characters), but now you log into the MacOS, Linux and Windows machines using your Windows/ActiveDirectory credentials.
If you are having trouble logging in, the first step should be resetting your password via the CoE User Tools – Password Reset page.
For any questions or problems regarding this change, please email us, or stop in to the Help Desk in WEB L210 or L224.
