Getting Started With GENI - Part 2 Exercise 2

Image Map

1. Design the Experiment

  1. In today's experiment you will use resources at the aggregate listed on your worksheet.

1.1 Obtain Resources

You can use Flack or Omni to create your slice and allocate resources. The instructions here assume you are using Flack.

On your portal home page, find the project (GEC17). Click on the project name and find the slice you created earlier in this tutorial.

1.2 Reserve Two Virtual Machines at One Aggregate

We will use the same topology used in the previous exercises: Two nodes connected by a link.

If you are using an ExoGENI Rack: The RSpec you will need is at

If you are using an InstaGENI Rack: The RSpec you will need is at

You can import this RSpec into Flack or use it with Omni. Please use the same aggregate (rack) you used for your other exercises.

Wait until the Flack canvas turns green. If you are using Omni, wait until tells you your resources are ready and gives you ssh commands you can use to log into your nodes.

ExoGENI Only: When the Flack canvas turns green you will notice the nodes do have have ssh information available. You will have to refresh your slice by clicking on the green "refresh" button to the right of the "Submit" button. Click "yes" when you get the pop-up asking if you really want to refresh the slice. After the slice is refreshed, you should see ssh information (ip address and port number) next to the node icons.

1.3 Note the ssh information for the server and client nodes

In you worksheet, write down the IP addresses and port numbers used to ssh into the server and client nodes.
