The fish machines run the Red Hat 6.2 distribution of Linux (version 2.2.16), are rack-mounted in the Wean Hall 3rd floor machine room, and are administered by the CS facilities group. They are rebooted every morning at 7am.
Q: Are the accounts ready yet?
A: YES! (6pm, May 21)
Q: What do I need to do before logging in for the very
A: From your Andrew home directory on one of the Andrew Unix cluster machines (linux.andrew, etc.), run the following one-time checkin script:
Q: What does the checkin script do?
A: It creates two subdirectories in your Andrew home directory: "15-349" and "349hw".
Q: I looked in my 15-349 directory and it's empty. What gives?
A: To see the .klogin and .login files, you need to use "ls -a".
Q: How do I log into one of these machines once I've run the checkin script?
A: If your Andrew login is bovik and you want to login to machine FISH, then login as follows:
% telnet FISH.cmcl.cs.cmu.edu Connected to FISH.cmcl.cs.cmu.edu. Escape character is '^]'. Red Hat Linux release 6.2 (Zoot) Kernel 2.2.16 on an i686 login: firstname.lastname@example.org ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ don't leave this out! password: [andrew password]
Alternatively, if you use ssh:
% ssh -l email@example.com FISH.cmcl.cs.cmu.edu firstname.lastname@example.org@FISH's password: [andrew password]
Don't forget to replace "FISH" with a cluster machine name from the table below.
Q: I did everything you said but I still can't login. Now what?
A: The main reasons students can't login are:
Intel engineers traditionally use the names of North American rivers as internal names for their processor projects. So it seems fitting that we, as denizens of the Intel cluster, name the machines after freshwater fish of North America. The machines can be accessed with either ssh or telnet.
Each node on the cluster runs Red Hat Linux 6.2 (Linux kernel 2.2.16) and consists of the following hardware:
