For routine questions or requests send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more urgent matters, contact the CS help desk at x8-4231 or visit them in person M-F, 9am-5pm, in WeH 3613. Outside of office hours, the phone rolls over to the CS operations group, which is staffed 24x7x365.
Q: Are the accounts ready yet?
A: Yes, you should be able to log in. Please contact one of the TAs in case of problems.
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 script:
Q: What does the checkin script do?
A: It creates two subdirectories in your Andrew home directory: "15-213" and "213hw".
Q: How do I log into one of these machines?
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 Trying 220.127.116.11... Connected to FISH.cmcl.cs.cmu.edu. Escape character is '^]'. [ Kerberos V4 accepts you ] [ Kerberos V4 challenge successful ] Red Hat Linux release 6.2 (Zoot) Kernel 2.2.16 on an i686 login: email@example.com ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ don't leave this out! password: [andrew password]
Alternatively, if you use ssh:
% ssh -l firstname.lastname@example.org FISH.cmcl.cs.cmu.edu email@example.com@FISH's password: [andrew password]
Don't forget to replace "FISH" with a cluster machine name from the table below.
Q: I changed my Andrew password and can no longer log in. What
A: Your password for the fish machines is set to your Andrew password at the beginning of the semester and stays fixed throughout the semester, so changes to your Andrew password won't affect it. Therefore, you have to use your old Andrew password for logging in.
Q: I can no longer log in. What happened?
A: You probably deleted your "15-213" directory. Run the checkin script again (follow the instructions above).
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:
