In order to gain access to PALMA-II, you have to complete the following steps:
  1. Register your research group for the usage of the HPC resources.
    This has to be done only once per research group. The application can be found on the right. A quick reference card guiding you through the steps of your application can also be found on the right.
  2. Self-subscribe for your research group in the IT Portal (if you haven't done this before)
  3. Self-subscribe to the group membership for u0clstr in the IT Portal and read & accept our Terms of Use 

    Whenever you subscribe for a new group membership (u0clstr or any research group) or these memberships are renewed,  you have to wait one night for the changes to take effect and be picked up by our systems!

  4. Upload your SSH key in the IT Portal under "Passwords and PINS" → "Public SSH keys"
  5. Register for our mailing list and join the Mattermost HPC-Users channel to receive important information
  6. Read the how-to guides provided on this website
  7. Login via SSH

Additional Notes

  1. After registering it can take up to 24h until you can login at PALMA-II!
  2. It is not sufficient to just be a member of u0clstr. You also have to be a member of a registered (as in step 1) *research group!

    *research group means one of the groups that either already pre-exist in the IT portal, or which can be created following the rules outlined here. Group names consist of up to eight characters, always start with a letter, followed by a digit, followed by a character string, like in "u0clstr". Do not just invent arbitrary names on your application form. Projects can only be created by project leaders, i.e. regular staff members. Join the group of your professor if you are a student. You cannot register groups with a broad scope like "u0dawin", "p0stud", "u0mitarb" and the like. Groups on institute level are ok only if the institute is small, otherwise a group on chair level is preferable. If you still do not know what a research group is, please ask before sending in an application.
