Note for Evergreen-provisioned laptop users: PC Laptop users that are off campus will need to use the OLD password to log into their laptops UNTIL they return to campus with the laptop. At this point the laptop will check in with the servers and get the new password. Mac user’s computer passwords are not tied to the Evergreen domain password. Mac LAPTOP passwords are not required to change.
