Technical support

Requests for technical support or issues with the infrastructure or software are handled by our technical team.

We advise you to check our status system before contacting regarding problems with the e-infrastructure.

Support Services and Response Times

Support requests are added to an issue tracker (ticket system) that is staffed with skilled operators. The staff provide first-line assistance to all users, including user access and password administration to HPC and data storage projects on the national e-infrastructure resources.

The support staff is on call Monday-Friday and follows regular office hours. Short staffing during holidays may cause deviations in opening hours. Users will receive a response within hours during normal work hours or at the latest the following working day.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How do I log in to the systems?

You find information about how you can log in to our system in the Getting Started section in the Technical documentation.

Why can´t I log into the resources?

There may be several reasons for this. If you recently changed your password, please wait up to one hour before logging in.

If you still cannot log in, verify that your username and password are correct. You may do so by trying to log in to the resource administration system.

If this does not work, you could try resetting your password.

In case you have tried the above without success, please contact support at

How can I get access to a project or another system?

If you already have a user account, you can be added directly by the project leaders.

If you don`t have a user account, you can apply for one by following the instructions: How to apply for a user account.

What are the allocation periods?

The allocation periods are split into two.

They are referred to by the year they start, and suffixed with the number 1 or 2 to indicate if it is the first og second period of the year.

To show an example, period 2024.1 starts on 1 April and ends on 30 September 2024. Period 2024.2, starts on 1 October 2024 and ends on 31 March 2025.

Periods always follow this logic:

  • Periods ending with ".1" start on 1 April and end on 30 September.
  • Periods ending with ".2" start on 1 October and end on 31 March.

We need a valid application for each period. It is not possible to transfer unused CPU hours between periods.

Please refer to the call for each period for more details.
