Additionally, the ACNS Help Desk told me that:
"With all the new changes that went through the past 48 hours, the system
authentication for password change should be done using your PID and PAN/PIN.
This service can be done at netid.msu.edu and selecting the "forgot my password"
Is it true that you have to dig up your PAN/PIN number to make the password
change, and go through the forgot my password screen?
My users are starting to fuss...
