All active NSLS-II users receive computer accounts for accessing beamline computers and data

To run beamline experiments and access data at NSLS-II, all active users are being issued a computer account, which is also known as a "BNL domain account." These accounts follow a single sign-on strategy and replace the "controls" accounts that some users have used in the past.

The creation of BNL domain accounts for users will start in early February of 2021 and is expected to be completed by the summer. These changes will be rolled out beamline-by-beamline. For new users, this new computer account will be automatically created when the BNL guest appointment is approved. A user's account will remain active until their appointment or training expire.
