Getting Help

For any questions or issues not answered by the documentation, please submit a support request by emailing [email protected]. Your email will initiate a ticket that NCSA staff will use to help you.

To help NCSA staff efficiently address your request, in your initial email, please include:

  • A descriptive subject line starting with Campus Cluster (for example, “Campus Cluster: sbatch isn’t working.”)

  • In the email body, include:

    • The UserID you use to log into the system.

    • Approximately when (date/time) the issue occurred.

    • What you were trying to do and how you tried to do it.

    • Why you think it isn’t working.

    • Commands or scripts you ran, in enough detail to reproduce the problem (text files are preferred).

    • The output and/or error messages you got (text files are preferred).

    • Did you install any packages or modules? If so, which ones?

    • If your command or script worked in the past, when did it stop working?

    • Any other approaches you’ve tried.

    • Any other information you think might be relevant.

If you have multiple, unrelated issues, please create a separate ticket for each by sending separate emails.

You will receive email correspondence as your ticket is worked on, please respond to any questions that are asked.

In-person or Zoom user support meetings are generally available between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Central Time, Monday through Friday (excluding University holidays); please make an appointment by emailing [email protected].
