1.3: Accounts

For an account on the Unix Cluster, contact Lena Scimeca (x2833, E-mail: unixadmin@pppl.gov). She will need to know:

  1. Your full name
  2. Your prefered username. Your username is limited to 8 characters. By default, the choice of username is your first initial and last name; however, if that is more than 8 characters, or if you already have accounts under another username, you may want to choose another username (such as your last name only or just your initials).
  3. whether you already have an account on NERSC (and if so, what your username is there).

You will be given a home directory when your account is created which will be called `/u/username', however in many contexts you can also refer to your home directory by the abbreviation `~'. (Similarly you can refer to home directory of user jsmith either with `/u/jsmith' or `~jsmith'.)

By default, there's a quota of 20MB on your home directory.
