  • Request authorization of your ETH account from
  • Start your SSH client
  • Use ssh command to connect to the login node of Euler or Leonhard Open
  • Use your ETH credentials to login
  • New users must accept the cluster’s usage rules upon first login
  • You can generate SSH keys for passwordless login

Current users

To regain the access after the incident on 15 May, all users have to change their LDAP password and generate a new SSH key.

  • Change your ETH password at
  • Wait for one working day. The change should become active on the next day from 8am.
  • If you have waited for one working day and could still not access the cluster, please contact us.
  • Regenerate SSH keys

External collaborators

  • Members of other institutions who have a collaboration with a research group at ETH may use the clusters for the purpose of said collaboration
  • Their counterpart (“sponsor”) at ETH must create an ETH guest account for them, including e-mail address and VPN service
  • Once this is done, they can access Euler like members of ETH
