Getting Started

Who is eligible for an account on a cluster hosted by IDRE? Find out on the Security Policy page. All accounts on any cluster hosted by IDRE are governed by the Security Policy. Read it.

 

New User Registration <- Click here to apply for an account on a cluster hosted by IDRE.

When you click on this link, your session will be redirected to the UCLA Federated Authentication Service so that you can authenticate yourself as a member of the UCLA community. To do so you will need your UCLA Logon ID and password. If you do not have one, go to https://logon.ucla.edu and get one now.

You will be asked to select a faculty sponsor for your new cluster account. If your sponsor is not included in the drop-down list of sponsors, he/she can register with the New Sponsor Registration link below.

This single registration will create both a cluster account and a UCLA/UC Grid account for you. Your Cluster and Grid passwords are independent and initially will be different.

  • Use your Cluster login ID and its password when you access a login node with a local SSH2 client program.
  • Use your Grid username and its password when you point your browser at the UCLA Grid Portal http://grid.ucla.edu or the UC Grid Portal http://portal.ucgrid.org and login. You also need to use your Grid username and password when you use the Hoffman2 iPhone and Android apps, and when you transfer files to or from the ucla#dtn1 endpoint with Globus.
