    v30 v31  
    2727The InstaGENI team sends an email with information about what's needed for the rack installation and warranty support to the main IT contact for a potential new rack site.  Site contacts fill out an InstaGENI [http://www.protogeni.net/wiki/instageni/checklist site questionnaire] as soon as possible after ordering their rack.  The questionnaire requests networking details and administrator account information that InstaGENI engineers need to pre-configure your rack. The team creates your initial administrator account, which provides access to all devices in the rack via SSH public keys, and allows you to create additional administrator accounts.  The GPO coordinates additional site configuration and network integration activities for the deployment of your rack. You will be asked to play a role or provide information as part of the four activities below:
    2828
    29   1. The GPO will contact you to determine how your rack will connect to the GENI core networks.  The GPO will help engineer your site's layer 2 data paths and the shared, exclusive and stitching VLAN options to configure for your network connections. For details see the [http://groups.geni.net/syseng/wiki/sydSandbox/Connectivity/endToEndConnectionsOF Meso-scale Connection Requirements] page. The GPO also adds a test point host to monitor your site's !OpenFlow access.  GMOC monitoring is set up to gather operational data about your site. There are no actions required of a site administrator to set up monitoring, but if you are interested in more details, see the [http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/TangoGeniMonitoring GENI Operations Monitoring] page. During this integration phase, your sites will need to accept the [http://groups.geni.net/geni/attachment/wiki/ComprehensiveSecurityPgm/Aggregate%20Provider%20Agreement%20v04.pdf?format=raw Aggregate Provider Agreement].

    3131  2. The GPO will execute experimenter, administrative and monitoring tests on each InstaGENI site.  As part of these tests, you will be asked to add an initial administrator account for the GPO,  and you will be asked to remove the account upon test completion. Instructions for adding and removing InstaGENI Administrative accounts can be found at the ProtoGENI [http://www.protogeni.net/ProtoGeni/wiki/RackAdminAccounts Rack Administration] page, an updated version of these instructions can be found [wiki:GENIRacksAdministration/InstaGENIAdministration here].  The InstaGENI New Site Confirmation Test Plan can be found [http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/GENIRacksHome/InstageniRacks/SiteConfirmationTests here], and status for all InstaGENI Site Confirmation tests can be found [http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/GENIRacksHome/InstageniRacks/ConfirmationTestStatus here].
     
    5959  1. An ExoGENI engineer will contact your site to collect information for configuring and installing your rack.  The racks are built at IBM, and pre-configured at the IBM integration center.  The ExoGENI rack team supports the initial rack installation remotely, once you've connected your new rack to power and external network cables.  The ExoGENI operations team verifies connectivity to the rack components and completes detailed configuration for all rack components (e.g. storage and switches).  They then configure ORCA and !OpenFlow software, along with cloud and GENI federation software. You may be asked to provide some support for these activities.

    61   2.  The GPO and ExoGENI teams will coordinate to integrate your site into the GENI network. For details, see the [http://groups.geni.net/syseng/wiki/sydSandbox/Connectivity/endToEndConnectionsOF Meso-scale Connection Requirements] page. The GPO also adds a test point host to monitor your site's !OpenFlow access. During this integration phase, your site will need to accept the [http://groups.geni.net/geni/attachment/wiki/ComprehensiveSecurityPgm/Aggregate%20Provider%20Agreement%20v04.pdf?format=raw Aggregate Provider Agreement].

    6363  3. The GPO will execute experimenter, administrative and monitoring tests on each site ExoGENI site.  As part of this test, the GPO requests an administrator account from the ExoGENI team by sending email to exogeni-ops@renci.org to request LDAP credentials. Note that only ExoGENI team can add accounts to the central LDAP master and that administrative privileges are granted via sudo, which is dependent upon LDAP group membership.
