To find out if you already have a SLURM account, do the following: First, log in to O2, using the address


(IMPORTANT: Make sure your eCommons ID consists only of lowercase letters and digits.)

Then, run the following

$ sshare -Unu <your-ecommons-id>
If you get output, and it looks something like this
<your-group>   <your-ecommons-id>  1    0.001815           0      0.000000   1.000000
...with <your-group> and <your-ecommons-id> replaced appropriately, then you're all set! You do not need to submit the form below.

SLURM Account Request (for current Orchestra users only!)

(Asterisks indicate required fields.)

1 Clarification for experienced users: Orchestra users automatically have access to the O2 cluster (i.e. they can log in to o2.hms.harvard.edu using their Orchestra credentials, and run typical commands on the Unix command line), but in order to submit jobs to O2's SLURM resource manager, they need, in addition, a SLURM account. Requesting such an account, by those who don't yet have one, is the purpose of this form.
