* Please note that users are assigned two accounts for accessing the CNM. Your user account is your badge number (numbers only) and is established once you register. Your ANL Domain Account is created once you are fully approved for site access. A good rule of thumb is to check if the log in requests a badge number (user account) or a username (ANL Domain Account).
