Difference: NewTier3User (r2 vs. r1)

Getting Started on the Tier3

Welcome to the MSU Tier3 information page for new users! This Foswiki page will help you request the necessary computing accounts and set up a suitable working environment.

1. Requesting computer accounts

In order to access any of the computing resources in the HEP department you need (at a minimum) an account on the HEPComputingCluster. You will also need an account on the Tier3. Access to the MSU Tier3 requires the approval of a tenured MSU ATLAS faculty member. Both of these accounts may be obtained at the same time by having a tenured MSU ATLAS faculty member email both the HEP cluster administrator George Perkins and the Tier3 administrator Richard Drake with the request and the following information:

  • your first and last name
  • your office number (or where you can be found) and
  • your preferred username.

Keep in mind that when you join ATLAS (an independent process) you will be assigned a CERN username that is likely to be of the form (e.g. Jane West --> jwest). Some users find it useful to have the same username on the MSU cluster, but it is not necessary.

2. Changing your password

You will be given a temporary password to log in to these systems. This password will be given to you in person and will never be transmitted via email. You should change this password by opening a terminal and typing 'kpasswd'. You will be prompted for your current password and then prompted to enter in a new password and again to confirm.
