Sync My NEOMED Device Password (I'm Working Remotely and I Use the NEOMED VPN)

IMPORTANT: This article applies to NEOMED-owned devices only. It does not apply to your personal laptop/desktop computer.

  • If you have not already changed your password, go to the Change Your Password page and follow the prompts.
  • Determine whether your NEOMED laptop or desktop is joined to NEOMED Active Directory (AD):
    • If either the ID and/or password you use to log in to your computer is different from your NEOMED Account user ID or password, your device is not joined to AD.
    • If you do use your NEOMED Account user ID and password to log into your device, it may be joined to AD.  If you're not sure, see knowledge article How Can I Tell if My Device is Joined to NEOMED's AD Domain?
  • Sync your computer login password, if necessary:
    • If you don't have a device that's joined to AD: Refer to the After you change your password section below.
    • If you have one or more AD devices you use while working remotely and you use the NEOMED VPN, complete the following steps for each of those devices:
      • Log in to your AD device:
        • If you're already logged in to the device and the screen is not locked, skip to Sync your local login password below.
        • If the AD device is currently off / asleep / hibernating /or locked, try using your NEW password to log in.
          • If it doesn't work: Use your OLD password to log in; then continue with Sync your local login password below.
          • If that works: Skip to After you change your password below.
      • Sync your local login password:
        • Wait a minute or two; then lock your screen (CTL-ALT-DEL on Windows; CTRL+CMD+Q on MAC; CTRL+ALT+L on Linux) 
          • IMPORTANT:  Do NOT log off, reboot, or shut down and restart your computer - just lock your screen using the key combinations listed above.
        • Wait approximately 10 seconds; then use your NEW password to unlock it.
