Closing User Accounts: The PI for the project or the main contact is responsible for notifying HPCS to close user accounts and the disposition of the user’s software, files and data. In some cases, users share software and data from their home directory and others may depend on them. For this reasons, only account terminations have to be requested by PI, the main account or the user of the account. Users accounts are not automatically deactivated upon termination of an employee because many people change their employment status, but remain engaged with the project.
How to get an Account on the UX8
UX8 is a 4-core, 15GB general purpose VM server that is available to users for doing programming development on their HPC applications. It features the same programming environment as is available on the Lawrencium cluster and has licenses for Mathematica. Users should go to http://service-now.lbl.gov/ and login using their LBNL LDAP username and password to make the request. Berkeley Lab PIs can also use the form to submit account requests for non-LBNL users associated with their project.
