But about renewal requests: users are kindly requested NOT to send their renewal requests directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. ITCS staff can not change your expiration date without an e-mail of authorization from your account responsible. See you later in the section: How to get an account renewal of this page.
What a STANDARD account on the SISSA MAIN CLUSTER provides
The account provides the following facilities:
- remote SSH access to SISSA main cluster servers (example: ssh.sissa.it);
- an e-mail account with email@example.com as address and firstname.lastname@example.org as alias;
About disk space usage on the SISSA-main-cluster user-main-directories, please read the disksusagepage.
About a VISITOR account
VISITOR ACCOUNTS have no SISSA E-MAIL address (no e-mail box, webmail…).
The School has created a web application for registering visitors online before the date of their arrival. Please follow this instructions for the visitor registration.
How to get a NEW account
- 1) You must fill in the Account Request Forms, which can be obtained at Secretariat offices or outside room A-115.
- 3) please attach to the form a photocopy of your ID card (both sides) or passport (pages with your photo and personal data).
Please note: VISITOR ACCOUNTS have no a SISSA E-MAIL address (Comitato Utenti ITCS 9/11/2010).
The form must be clearly filled in using capital letters, so as to avoid any misunderstanding and possible errors in the account opening procedure that cause a waste of time to the user and to the staff. The form duly and fully completed and signed is to be handed over to helpdesk Staff, room A-115, before 13.30. The account will normally be operational the same day at 14:30. After 13.30 the account will be operational the next working day.
The username for the new account must be, without exception, made up:
- by the initial part of the first name followed by a part of the surname or
- by the surname (sometime it is not possible to use surnames due to problems of homonymy, so generally it is better to choose the other solution).
First names or nicknames will not be accepted.
About your password:
- please change it immediately after the opening of your account (please read the change password page);
- read the e-mail warning page.
How to get an account renewal
To change the expiration date of an account, it is sufficient an e-mail sent by the account responsible of your Area/Group to: email@example.com with the new expiration date. Each Area/Group has one or more persons responsibles for the accounts, no other member of staff can sign the form.
