Applying for your SDA or RFS account
Note: To keep pace with the growing needs of Indiana University researchers, Research File System (RFS) storage will be migrating in the near future from OpenAFS to a new technology from DataDirect Networks, Inc. (DDN), based on the General Parallel File System (GPFS). For more, see Information about upcoming changes to the Research File System at IU.
- For instructions on requesting an individual SDA or RFS account,
see Instructions for getting additional computing accounts at IU
- For instructions on requesting an SDA or RFS account for an IU group or department, see About requesting a departmental or group account.
After submitting your account request, UITS will notify you via email when your account is ready for use.
Note: If an account that you want does not appear to be available, contact your campus computing Support Center. Sometimes, accounts for which you are eligible may not appear in the Account Management Service; in those cases, the Support Center can create those manually for you.
