Changing Your Lotus Notes Passwords

Changing Your LN Client Password

Note: The LN Client password allows access by using the user.id file that is stored on your computer. Therefore, if this password is changed on one computer, the change will not be effective on another computer. Your LN Client password must be changed separately on each computer on which you use the LN Client.

  1. Open your Lotus Notes Client.
  2. Choose File, then Security, and User Security.
  3. Enter your current LN Client password and then click OK or Log In.
  4. Click Change Password.
  5. Enter your old password and click OK or Log In.
  6. The Change Password dialog box appears.
  7. Enter your new password.
  8. Enter your new password again and click OK.
  9. You will receive a notification prompt that your password change succeeded. Click OK.
  10. LN will accept the new password and return to the User Security dialog box.
  11. Click OK or Close to exit the User Security dialog box.

Changing Your LN Internet Password

We recommend changing your LN Internet password each time you change your LN Client password. It will be easier to remember the passwords if you keep both passwords the same. However, they may be different if you so choose.

Using the LN Client to Change Your LN Internet Password:

  1. Open your Lotus Notes Client. If you do not have access to the LN Client, follow the steps in the next section to use iNotes to change your LN Internet password through an Internet browser.
  2. Open the FHSU Address Book on NotesHub.
  3. Search for your name or use the scroll bar to find your name.
  4. Click to select your name and then click Edit Person.
  5. Under the Basics tab, go to Internet password. If you have not established an Internet password, this field will be blank. If there is data shown, highlight the data (it is an encrypted version of your current password) and type in your new password to replace it.
  6. Click Save and Close. LN will automatically encrypt your password and exit the editing window.

Using iNotes to Change Your LN Internet Password (through an Internet Browser):

  1. Establish an active Internet connection.
  2. Open an Internet browser and go to the FHSU home page
  3. Click on Faculty & Staff, and then click on Lotus Notes.
  4. Log in using your Username and your current LN Internet Password.
  5. Click on Preferences. Next, select Security. Click Change.
  6. Enter your current password. Enter your new password. Enter it again to verify, and then click OK.
  7. You will receive a message indicating that your password change has been successfully submitted. Click OK twice to confirm the change and exit the Preferences dialog window. Please allow at few minutes for the change to process; it may take up to ten minutes for replication to occur before your new password can be used to to access LN applications other than your e-mail and calendar via an Internet browser.
  8. To protect the privacy of your password, log out when finished and close your Internet browser.
