Note that if you are a student, PhD-student or guest researcher at your organization, you will need approval from a project responsible to get account. A project responsible manage the allocations units a research project is granted for doing their computations. If you are new to NOTUR and not related to a NOTUR research project, your supervisor may act as project responsible. Your supervisor may apply for allocation units through Uninett Sigma, see the link above.

Account information - user credentials
You will receive account information by email. Your user password is sent to your mobile phone as a SMS-message. When you have received your password, you must immediately change it. See below on how to change your password below.
Password and account protection
A user is given a username (also known as a login name) and associated password that permits her/him to access NOTUR resources. This username/password pair may be used by a single individual only: passwords must not be shared with any other person.
Passwords must be changed as soon as possible after exposure or suspected compromise. Exposure of passwords and suspected compromises must immediately be reported:
|System||University||Immediate action needed? Call|
|njord.hpc.ntnu.no||NTNUfirstname.lastname@example.org||+47 918 97677|
NOTE: Each user is responsible for all activities originating from any of his or her username(s).
A username/password pair must NOT be shared under any circumstances. Users who share their passwords will have their access to NOTUR systems disabled. Users should not leave clear-text passwords in a location accessible to others or secured in a location for which protection is less than that required for protecting the information that can be accessed using the password.
