How to Change your BML Network Password

You must change your BML network password from a domain joined PC such as a BML computer lab workstation.

Note:

  • Your user name is first initial last name (i.e. jsmith, NO middle initial).
  • Your network account is not the same as the wireless access account. 

From a domain joined PC:

  1. If the PC is logged in, log out
  2. First, log in as yourself (your user name is first initial last name i.e. jsmith, NO middle initial)
  3. Now choose control-alt-delete and a windows security box will appear
  4. Choose the option “change password” and follow the prompts
  5. Note that you must know your former password to change it
  6. If you are changing your password from a computer lab PC, be sure to log out when you are done.

Password Requirements

The minimum length is 8 characters and passwords must contain characters from three of the following five categories:

  • Uppercase characters of European languages (A through Z, with diacritic marks, Greek and Cyrillic characters)
  • Lowercase characters of European languages (a through z, sharp-s, with diacritic marks, Greek and Cyrillic characters)
  • Base 10 digits (0 through 9)
  • Nonalphanumeric characters: ~!@#$%^&*_-+=`|\(){}[]:;”‘<>,.?/
  • Any Unicode character that is categorized as an alphabetic character but is not uppercase or lowercase. This includes Unicode characters from Asian languages.
  • You cannot reuse a former password.
