Establish Environment

  • Bring up tutorial VM and log in.
  • Open Firefox web browser
  • Open a terminal window
  • The software required for this tutorial is already installed in the tutorial VM.
  • Download GIMI tutorial specific configuration files by issuing the following command in a user workspace terminal:
    $ cd ~/Tutorials/GIMI/common/
    $ git pull
    
  • The iRODS client uses a configuration file (~/.irods/.irodsEnv) that sets certain parameter for the icommands. Here is and example:
    # iRODS personal configuration file.
    #
    # This file was automatically created during iRODS installation.
    #   Created Thu Feb 16 14:06:27 2012
    #
    # iRODS server host name:
    irodsHost 'emmy8.casa.umass.edu'
    # iRODS server port number:
    irodsPort 1247
    
    # Default storage resource name:
    irodsDefResource 'iRODSUmass'
    # Home directory in iRODS:
    irodsHome '/geniRenci/home/gimiXX'
    # Current directory in iRODS:
    irodsCwd '/geniRenci/home/gimiXX'
    # Account name:
    irodsUserName 'gimiXX'
    # Zone:
    irodsZone 'geniRenci'
    

  • First of all copy the template iRODS configuration file to .irodsEnv with the following command:
    $ cp ~/.irods/gimiIrodsEnv ~/.irods/.irodsEnv
    
  • Open ~/.irods/.irodsEnv with your favorite text editor (we recommend nano) and change gimiXX to your assigned username (e.g., gimi04).
  • Register with iRODS server by issuing the following command (more details on iRODS will be given shortly):
    $ iinit
    

  • You will be prompted for a password. Please type in the password you were provided with on the paper handout!!
