Issues with log in to Research Infrastructure Services

Can’t Login? “Account Locked” Message?Following the recent University-wide password reset, a number of users have been unable to login to the CSF, receiving an “account locked” message.

This is NOT a problem with the CSF. It is caused by your central IT user account being locked.

A common cause is that a mobile app or laptop/desktop app is still using your old password. For example, if you didn’t log out of an email app on your phone before changing your password, it could still be using your old password. You’ll need to sign out of the app and sign in again.

If you saved your password in an app such as MobaXterm, VSCode or WinSCP, then it may still be trying to login with your old password. You’ll need to remove the password from these apps (we recommend that you don’t save passwords in apps.)

You will need to contact the IT Help Desk to have your IT account unlocked – Research IT CANNOT do this for you.
