a New Computing Account outlines how to get an account on the Open
Computing Facility (OCF) CZ and RZ systems and the Secure
Computing Facility (SCF).
You may also use the Livermore Computing (LC)
Identity Management (IDM) System to request accounts.
For ISNSI network/Pinot accounts, please use the form on the Classified Computing Access Request page.

What Happens Next?
- After your account request has been processed, you will be notified by e-mail
or by phone on what to do next.
- For OCF accounts, you will also receive, via US mail, a One-Time
Password (OTP) token. Instructions on how to activate and use this token
are included with your account notification e-mail. Offsite users and LLNL employees
who work from home must also establish a Virtual
Private Network Account.
- For SCF accounts, you will be asked to visit the LC Hotline in person to set
up your initial password. If you are not physically at LLNL, as is the case for
SecureNet users, you will receive your password and instructions via US mail.
- When you are ready to log in, see How
Do I Access Livermore Computing Resources?
Machine Status E-mail Lists
When you are given an account on either the OCF (CZ/RZ) or SCF, you are placed on
the appropriate machine status mailing lists: email@example.com or
firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a manual process, so you should check to make sure you are on the list
if you want to be. When you are on the lists, you will receive machine status
notices as appropriate (downtimes, etc.). The Mailing
Lists page provides more details on list names, how to subscribe and
unscribe from a list, and how to tell if you are on a certain list.
