SMHI clusters

If you want access to a dedicated SMHI cluster such as Bi, Frost or Byvind:

  1. Talk to your user group representative. For Bi, it is Michael Kolax for the Rossby Centre and Anders Höglund for all other user groups. For Frost and Byvind, it is Lars Berggren.

  2. Send an email from your SMHI email address to . Please include:

    • The name of the cluster you want access to.
    • Your full name.
    • Your phone number at SMHI.
    • What user group you belong to (Rossby, FoUo, FoUp, ...)
  3. We will check your request with the user group representative at SMHI. When we get an OK from him, we will create your account and you will receive an email to your registered email address with your username and preliminary password. Login using SSH within seven days to set a new, unique and good password.

SNIC and/or academic clusters

If you want to run on one of the general academic systems, you need to follow the normal procedures for applying for new projects, becoming a member of a project and getting a login account. It is the SMHI resources that are handled specially, not the users from SMHI.
