How to access the clusters
There are several requirements to be able to connect to the clusters:
- Have a UNIL account
- To be part of a PI project
- To be on the UNIL or CHUV network (either physically or using the UNIL VPN if you work remotely)
- To have a SSH client
Step 0: Have a UNIL account
This applies to members of the CHUV community as well as for external collaborators
See the documentation for how to get a UNIL account
CHUV users should also consult https://www.unil.ch/ci/ui/ext-hosp for more information.
Step 1: Be part of a PI project
To access the clusters, your PI will first need to request resources via: https://conference.unil.ch/research-resource-requests/. Then the PI must add you as a member of one of his project. Within 24 hours your access should be granted.
Step 2: Activate the UNIL VPN
Unless you are physically within the UNIL network you need to activate the UNIL VPN (Crypto). Documentation to install and run it can be found here.
Step 3: Open a SSH client
On Linux and Mac environments, a SSH client should be available by default. You simply need to open a terminal.
Step 4: Log into the cluster
ssh -X <username>@curnagl.dcsr.unil.ch
<username> is your UNIL username name. You will have to enter your UNIL password.
Note: we strongly recommend you to establish SSH keys to connect to the clusters and to protect your SSH keys with a passphrase.
More details are available regarding the different clients in this documentation.
