InstaGENI New Site Administration

This page captures information that should be defined for new Site Administrators, so that they may know which resources are available and access them.

Prerequisites

  1. Instructions are available at the Admin Accounts on InstaGeni Racks page that provide details for administrative account requests. Each rack will initially deliver one administrative account that can add or remove other admin accounts.
  1. Also Local Admin must join the emulab-ops group, once account was create and membership to emulab-ops was approved proceeded to execute administrative tests. Note the Utah rack request was submitted at https://boss.utah.geniracks.net/joinproject.php3?target_pid=emulab-ops.
  1. Access to FOAM.utah.genirack.net and FlowVisor also seem to require some additional account(s)? Investigating.

Information to be documented for Local Admin

  1. Define type of access supported:
  • SSH no password for nodes
  • Telnet password for control plane switch, must communicate the location of the telnet password to Local Admin.
  • Telnet password for dataplane switch, must communicate login ID (elabman) and password location to Local Admin.
  1. There are a multitude of host names for each component in the rack there need to be a list of hostnames provides to the user which documents which hostname is mapped to which address and the role of that definition.

For example the following exist on the InstaGENI rack:
