Getting a COSMA account
To get a new COSMA account, you need to apply via the DiRAC SAFE system: https://safe.epcc.ed.ac.uk/dirac/
When creating your account, it is essential that you upload an ssh key. You should also select the project to which you will belong. This will either be a DiRAC project, or if you are a local Durham user (for COSMA5), please select project hpcicc. Once this form has been submitted, you will then have to wait for COSMA staff to create your account. You will be notified by email.
You will need an ssh key. Please see here for further information about how to generate one.
