    v11 v12  
    1111There are three potential access scenarios that may be in place
    1212
    13  - Local Administrator:    Each InstaGENI rack is initially configured to allow ssh access for one administrator account to all hosts (physical and virtual). If you are this person, than you have access to all hosts  (''boss'', ''ops'', ''control'',  ''flowvisor'' )  in the rack. Do note that the 'flowvisor' host is now a light-weight VM used for the purposes of forwarding OF traffic from the data plane switch to experimenter controllers and that the actual FOAM/FlowVisor OpenFlow packages are no longer supported.

    1515 - Additional administrative accounts :  User has submitted a request for an administrative account by joining the emulab-ops group and uploading his/her SSH keys via the Emulab web interface.  Once the request is approved by an existing administrator, the new administrator can access web administrative functions, and some hosts (''boss'' and ''ops'') via SSH.

    26 Access to the hosts in the InstaGENI rack requires SSH public keys.  You must upload your SSH public key into the Emulab web interface, which will result in access to the ''boss'' and ''ops'' node. If you want access to additional nodes (''control'', ''flowvisor'', ''foam'') then you must ask the system administrator to install your keys on the control host as specified [http://www.protogeni.net/ProtoGeni/wiki/RackAdminAccounts here].
