    55== Where can I find the workspace? ==
    6   - Currently on a BBN internal server.  Will be moved to an external server in the near future.
    7     [Add link here]
    8 
    9   - OVF image coming soon
    10     [Add link here]
     6
     7  - You can downloaded it from the BBN FTP server.
     8    - FTP information will be emailed to the appropriate lists.
     9    - Usernames and passwords will be emailed
     10
     11== Installing the VM ==
     12
     131. Install !VirtualBox
     14
     15    Download the !VirtualBox software from http://www.virtualbox.org.
     16
     17    If you already have !VirtualBox installed on your machine, make sure it is version 4.1 or above.
     18
     192. Download !VirtualBox VM image for tutorials
     20
     21    Download the !VirtualBox VM image (GENI UW 12.04 v1.0.ova) from the BBN FTP server.
     22
     233. Install the ''GENI UW 12.04 v1.0.ova'' virtual machine image
     24
     25    Start up !VirtualBox, select File->Import Appliance..., and follow the
     26    instructions.    Accept the default VM settings during the import.
     27
     28    To run the virtual machine, go to the Oracle VM !VirtualBox Manager window, select the VM and click the
     29    green arrow labeled Start at the top of this window.
     30
     31== Configuring Credentials ==
     32
     33You will need three sets of credentials (two optional) when using the user workspace:
     34
     351. A GENI certificate.
     36   This is the SSL certificate (with .pem extension)
     37   that you download from one of the slice authorities (e.g. emulab.net
     38   or pgeni.gpolab.bbn.com)
     39
     40   You can use a certificate with or without a passphrase.
     41
     422. (Optional) An iRODS account.
     43   This is only needed if you want to access an iRODS server from the
     44   user workspace.
     45   You must have the following information in an irods configuration file.
     46
     47{{{
     48    irodsHost
     49    irodsPort
     50    irodsDefResource
     51    irodsHome
     52    irodsCwd
     53    irodsUserName
     54    irodsZone
     55}}}
     56
     57   Make sure you remember the password for your iRODS account.  You will
     58   need this when you run credconfig.sh below.
     59
     60
     613. (Optional)  A Java Keystore file created from your GENI certificate.
     62   '''This is only needed if you want to use Flukes.'''
     63   See https://geni-orca.renci.org/trac/wiki/flukes/#Userauthorization
     64   for instructions on how to generate the keystore file.
     65
     66   Make sure you remember the alias and password that you used when
     67   creating the keystore file.  You will need this when you run Flukes.
     68
     69Transfer these files to a location in your home directory.  You can do this with ftp, scp, or [wiki:#UsingSharedFolders shared folders].
     70
     71With these 1-3 files, you can configure your credentials with the credconfig.sh tool.
     72
     73{{{
     74   $ credconfig.sh -g <path-to-geni-credential> -i <path-to-irods-config> -f <path-to-jks-file>
     75}}}
     76
     77Example:
     78
     79{{{
     80   $ credconfig.sh -g /home/geniuser/gpo_ctcert.pem -f /home/geniuser/pgeni.jks -i /home/geniuser/irods.config
     81}}}
     82
     83A pair of SSH keys will be generated for you using the private key from your GENI certificate.
     84
     85== Using Shared Folders ==
     86
     87If you need to transfer files from your host machine/laptop, the easiest way is typically using Shared Folders.
     88Follow these steps to set up a shared folder on your user workspace.
     89
     901. Go to the !VirtualBox "Devices" menu and select "Shared Folders..."
     91
     922. Click on the "Add" button on the right (looks like a folder with a plus sign).
     93
     943. Select the path of the folder you would like to share with your VM.
     95
     964. Enter the name you would like to give this shared folder in "Folder Name:" (e.g. myshared)
     97
     985. Click on "OK" in the Add Shares window
     99
     1006. Click on "OK" in the Shared Folders window
     101
     1027. Create the directory where you would like you shared folder mounted (e.g. /media/shared): 
     103{{{
     104sudo mkdir /media/shared
     105}}}
     106
     1078. Mount the shared folder: 
     108{{{
     109sudo mount -t vboxsf myshared /media/shared
     110}}}
     111
     112You should now be able to access your folder at /media/shared.
