Fermilab Password Reset Tool:

This is a self service tool where you can reset, change, or unlock your Windows (Fermi) and LDAP (Services) domain passwords without having to call the Service Desk or enter a Service Desk ticket.

This tool will require you to register/enroll before you can use it to reset, change, or unlock your account passwords. During the enrollment you will create security questions for BOTH domains and enroll an alternate non-fnal.gov for LDAP (Services) only.

This tool cannot change passwords for elevated accounts such as -mgr, -test accounts, nor special purpose accounts such as captive and service accounts. You can only use this tool to manage your normal user or -admin accounts.

The Windows Domain (Fermi) account is the account you use to login to your Windows Computer.

The LDAP Domain (Services) account is used to authenticate to the applications listed below. Changing your password for one will affect your password for all these applications:

      - FermiDash                                 - Fermilab SharePoint
      - Fermilab Time and Labor (FTL)    - Project Wizard
