How to provide an external collaborator with an account on HPC clusters?

There are three steps:

  1. The PI and the external collaborator must ask an account to UNIL using this form
  2. the PI to whom the external collaborator is related must use this application to add the collaborator into the appropriate project. Log into the application if necessary on the top right, and click on the "Manage members list / Gérer la liste de membres" icon for your project. The usernames always have 8 characters (e.g. Greta Thunberg username would be: gthunber)
  3. the external collaborator needs to use the UNIL VPN:

    https://www.unil.ch/ci/fr/home/menuinst/catalogue-de-services/reseau-et-telephonie/acces-hors-campus-vpn/documentation.html

The external collaborator under VPN can then login to the HPC cluster as if he was inside the UNIL.
