Only full, non-student GWDG accounts are eligible to be activated for the HPC system.
This excludes student accounts (i.e. accounts with mail addresses ending in @stud.uni-goettingen.de), even though they are marked as full accounts in the portal.
To see if you have a full GWDG account and can therefore be activated for th HPC service, log in to our portal, and take a look at your account page. If the institute ends with “Nutzer o. Institut (GNOI)”, it is NOT a full account.
To get your account activated, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, including your username and ideally from the email address associated with the account.
Getting a full GWDG Account
