Changing your password on Unix
When you change your Unix password, please remember it must be at least 6 characters long and contain at least two letters and one number (or special character), in those 6 characters.
- At the Unix % prompt type passwd
- Type in your current password when prompted and press Enter
- Type in a new password when prompted and press Enter
- Type the new password in again to confirm it and press Enter
You should then see a message confirming that your password has been changed. You should be able to use your new password within approx. 10 minutes if you log out.
