Change WCER Password with ADS
If you need to change your WCER account password, for example because the password is about to expire, you can do this remotely via the WCER Application Delivery Service (ADS) web page - even if your account is not set up to use any ADS applications. Here is how.
Step 1) Connect to the VPN
Step 2) Go to the ADS web page
Step 3) Optional - Lock the computer (Windows ONLY)
Once you have changed the password, if you stay connected to the VPN for at least 30 minutes your local login password should become synced with your new WCER password.
To make the sync happen instantly, while still connected to the VPN, press the Ctrl, Alt, and Delete keys and choose "Lock".
Then press Ctrl+Alt+Delete again and sign in to your laptop using your WCER username and new password.
If you are able to sign in with your new WCER password then step 3 has been successful. Congrats!
If you are not able to sign in, then it is likely that you entered your WCER username or password incorrectly or the VPN was not connected before you "Locked" the computer.
