Your HPSS Account

To get an HPSS account proceed the same way you did with the AVIDD account, i.e., go to http://itaccounts.iu.edu/, click on who you are (e.g., Student or Faculty), click on ``Create more IU computing accounts'', and press ``Continue''.

A new page will appear, where you will have to log in. Type your IU network ID, your IU network password and press ``Continue'' again.

You get to another page. Press on ``create more accounts'', and now various options appear, amongst them should be ``MDSS'', which stands for ``Massive Data Storage System'', which is how we refer to our IU HPSS (because this is what it is, whereas HPSS is a particular system that is used to provide this service).

This will work only if you are a staff, a faculty or a postgraduate student.

If you are an undergraduate student, you will have to ask your academic supervisor to request the MDSS account for you for the duration of this course.

In case of any problems with HPSS, send e-mail to Storage Administrators.
