    757 It wasn't entirely obvious how to find the switch names, usernames, and passwords; I created InstaGENI ticket [instaticket:71] to track the task of documenting that.

     889I'm not sure why this test only mentions the experiment nodes, and not the control node; I'd think that we'd especially want ILO access to that.
     890
     891The control node's ILO IP address is in DNS:
     892
     893{{{
     894[23:22:39] jbs@boss.instageni.gpolab.bbn.com:/users/jbs
     895+$ host -l 129/25.242.1.192.in-addr.arpa | grep ilo
     896131.129/25.242.1.192.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer control-ilo.instageni.gpolab.bbn.com.
     897}}}
     898
     899I was able to SSH to elabman@control-ilo.instageni.gpolab.bbn.com, using the password in boss:/usr/testbed/etc/ilo.pswd.
     900
     901Once there, I used 'help power' to show some power-control type commands. I created InstaGENI ticket [instaticket:72] to track the task of documenting this somewhere, although 'help' and then 'help power' is pretty intuitive. I didn't actually try any power commands on the control node.
     902
     903I then used the 'textcons' command to get a text console, where I saw a bunch of syslog messages, hit return a few times, and found myself at a "gpolab.control-nodes.geniracks.net login:" prompt. I wasn't able to log in as 'jbs' with my ProtoGENI password, which makes sense; how would my password have gotten set? And in fact I don't have one:
     904
     905{{{
     906[23:31:44] jbs@gpolab:/home/jbs
     907+$ sudo grep jbs /etc/shadow
     908jbs:*:15682:0:99999:7:::
     909}}}
     910
     911I set myself one, with 'sudo passwd jbs', but still wasn't able to log in. Also, the login prompt seemed to change from "gpolab.control-nodes.geniracks.net login:" to "gpolab login:", and back again, at seemingly random times. I mentioned this on IG ticket [instaticket:72] too.
     912
     913I was able to SSH to elabman@192.1.242.182, the ILO for pc3, and observe the console in boot wait mode. I reset the system with 'power reset', and that seemed to work. I noted on IG ticket [instaticket:72] that the ILO addresses for the experiment nodes aren't in DNS.

    889917 * Here's Utah's information about how to use the elabman consoles:
    890918   * The password for the elabman account is in `boss:/usr/testbed/etc/ilo.pswd`
     
    10261054 * We find out the IP address/hostname at which to reach the allocated worker node
    10271055 * Login to the node using root's SSH key succeeds

     1059I allocated an exclusive experiment node, with this rspec:
     1060
     1061{{{

     1085My manifest rspec said that I got pc3.instageni.gpolab.bbn.com.
     1086
     1087After it became ready, I confirmed that I could log in to it as myself as usual, i.e. that sshd was up and running properly.
     1088
     1089I then confirmed that I could log in from boss to pc3, and run commands as root:
     1090
     1091{{{
