All new users of the Palmetto Cluster are required to attend an onboarding training session. The training gives users an overview of:
- what resources are available on Palmetto
- methods to connect to Palmetto resources
- how to submit and run jobs
- responsible use of shared resources
How to Attend
Onboarding sessions are offered weekly on Fridays at 9 am, and 10am. The sessions are offered online via Microsoft Teams.
Please note that your Palmetto account must be approved before registering for the onboarding session. An account is required to participate.
You must sign in to the booking site with your Clemson account (as described below). Signing in with a personal Outlook account will not work, and you will be redirected to your outlook email rather than the booking site.
When you click the booking link, it will open an Outlook Login window. Fill in your email as your Clemson email and select Next.
Select "Work or school account" from the next screen.
You should now be redirected to a Clemson login page (you can confirm the domain is
adfs.clemson.edu). Enter your Clemson password and press Sign in.
Select your preferred 2fa/Duo option.
Once your Clemson login is complete, you will be redirected back to Outlook and asked if you'd like to stay signed in. You can select Yes if this is a personal computer.
You should now see our Research Computing and Data booking page and select your desired date and time from the available slots.
You should get an email with the link to join the session through Microsoft Teams.
If you cannot attend, please unregister from the session. To do so,
In your original confirmation email, select Reschedule.
Select cancel booking in the web browser that opens.
After completing the training, please feel free to review the onboarding materials again if you ever need to. You are welcome to attend another onboarding session and follow along, or review the onboarding workshop page on your own.
