We have mailed you a userid/password local to the FISH machines.
To connect to a fish machine type the following:
When queried for your password, enter your local password (from the email we sent)
Now that you're connected to the fish machine, you must
manually authenticate to Andrew in order to access your
files by typeing:
Now when queried for your password enter your Andrew password.
You can change your assigned password using the UNIX passwd command, but the change will ONLY affect the machine you're currently logged into. So if you change your password on pike, the new password will only work with pike and you'll have to use the old password on chum,walleye, etc.
If you get a Permission denied, please try again. error, trying
connecting using the command:
ssh -l USERID:local FISH.cmcl.cs.cmu.edu
If things don't seem to be working, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are having difficulty using a FISH machine, please read this FAQ and ask a TA for help before going to the CS facilities.
Q: Are the accounts ready yet?
A: Yes. An almost current status of your account can be found here.
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.cmu.edu or unix.andrew.cmu.edu), run the following one-time checkin script:
/afs/cs/academic/class/15213-s03/bin/checkinImportant: Before you run this script, make sure you do not have any subdirectories in your Andrew home directory called 15-213 or 213hw. If you do, rename them before running the checkin script.
Q: What does the checkin script do?
A: It creates two subdirectories in your Andrew home directory: 15-213 and 213hw.
The 15-213 directory contains the .klogin and .login files that will allow you to login from the fish machines. DO NOT DELETE ANYTHING IN THIS SUBDIRECTORY.
The 213hw directory contains secure subdirectories for each of the labs, with the permissions set so that only you can read the contents.
Remember, you only need to run the checkin script once, before your very first login to the fish machines.
Q: How do I log into one of these machines once I've run the
A: If your Andrew login is bovik and you want to login to machine FISH, then login as follows:
unix> 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: email@example.com ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ DON'T LEAVE THIS OUT! password: [andrew password]
Alternatively, if you use ssh:
unix> 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 did everything you said but I still can't login. Now what?
A: Here are the most common reasons students can't login:
unix> cd unix> fs sa -dir ~ -acl system:anyuser l unix> fs sa -dir ~/15-213 -acl system:anyuser rl
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:
