Baseline Set of Login Shells and User Selection
BC Project: FY05-06
Date of Policy: 12 Oct 2005
Last Updated: 12 Apr 2018 (see Revision Log)
A user may specify any login shell in the login shell baseline as their preferred shell by contacting email@example.com. Your preferred shell will become your default shell within 1-2 days.
Participating centers will honor preferred shell requests that are entered into pIE (portal to the Information Environment) for all systems where the user has accounts.
This policy will be documented at each center's website in the system User's Guides under the User Environment section.
