DKRZ user account

If you want to start working at DKRZ, you will need to be added to one of the projects with resources at DKRZ. You will need a DKRZ user account. Please pick one of the following options which fits your situation best.

1. I don't have any user account from DKRZ or from a climate research institute in Hamburg (throughCIS).

Create a web account on our

project and user management server.

You can then join a project using this account or administrators can add you to their projects if you tell them your user name. Once you are accepted by a project we will turn your web account into a full LDAP account which allows you to log into and use our systems. Our LDAP user names follow a certain scheme so it is most likely that your user name will change. Your password will stay the same.

2. I already own a user account which was issued to me by CIS. Now I want to start using DKRZ's computers.

Use your user name and password you got from CIS to log into our

project and user management server.

Here you can join a project or administrators can add you to their projects if you tell them your user name. Once you are accepted by a project you can start working on our computers. Your user name and password will stay the same.

3. I already work for a project with DKRZ resources but now I will start working for a different Project. Do I need a new user account?

No, you can continue to use your existing account for as many projects as you need to work for. Just log into our

project and user management server.

Here you can join a project or administrators can add you to their projects if you tell them your user name. Once you are accepted by the new project you can start using that project's resources. Just make sure that the compute time you use is charged to the correct project account.
