Opening an account
To request an account on the Graphics Cluster machines, send mail to
support at graphics.stanford.edu
indicating your sponsor, affiliation, and showing your SUNet account attributes.
- Sponsor is a graphics lab faculty member.
- Affiliation examples include:
- Post Doc 2012-13
- PhD - advisee
- PhD Fall 2012 Rotation
- CURIS Summer '12
- CA for CS147
- MS Student
- Project with Prof Levoy
- SUNet attributes can be obtained by logging into cardinal.stanford.edu
and using "getent" from the command line, e.g. for a SUNet user 'descartes',
getent passwd descartes.
Your graphics account will be created from your SUNetID, but with
a separate password.
Once you have an account, you will be able to log
into any of the public Unix, Apple or Windows machines in the Graphics Cluster.
Changing your password
Passwords cannot be updated via the default mechanisms of Linux,
however, one can ssh to "blit" and use kpasswd.
From on-campus Windows machines in EE domain, you can use the
normal Windows dialogs for changing a password.
Accounts are subject to annual renewal each June by the faculty.
