Synchronize your Kerberos Password with Windows Active Directory Password

As a part of the transition from Novell to Windows Infrastructure, synchronization of your Windows Active Directory and your Kerberos password is required in order to access your shared drive. Having the passwords synchronized will ensure that when you log into your computer, the shared drives will automatically appear in “My Computer.” The following instructions are to guide you through the process of changing or synchronizing your password.

You may print the guide by using this PDF.
