    2727   Again this could be due to a variety of reasons. For example, the InstaGENI rack may not have more memory or disk space to create any more VMs. Another major problem that is encountered is is lack of free Routable IP addresses which is required by the Global Node. You can use the GENI Monitoring system for find rack that satisfies your requirement. [https://genimon.uky.edu/status] .  In particular look for an Instageni rack that is available and has the least number of VMs allocated and at least some Routable IP available.

    3130=== 5. I see the message "There is an error in your slice". What do I do ? ===
     31   Please be patient and wait for at least 5 minutes. Occasionally the InstageRack is too busy to respond to status queries from the GENIDesktop. The GENIDesktop tries its best to get the status by using a backoff polling mechanism. Things may resume even after you see this error. If workflow does not proceed even after 5 minutes. Please logout of the GENIDesktop and wait for around 15 minutes and try to login and proceed again. If you still do not see productive results, please contact us at genidesktop-admins@netlab.uky.edu so that we may help you out. You may also cc, the GENI Users's mailing list (google group) and others who may have seen the same issue may be able to help you even before we do.

    43  * Renew Slice (and slivers) : Click on "Renew" button and increase the number of days as per your requirement.
    44  * View/Edit Slice Membership : Click on "Members" button to view the current slice members. If you would like to make any changes, please make the appropriate selections for each user and Click on "Submit Changes". If you have just added new members to your slice, either you will need to logout of the GENIDesktop and log back in for the new user to use your slice in the GENIDesktop or then the new user themselves can just re-login to the GENIDesktop.

    5655  Did you see a pop up tab/window  in your browser before you were taken to the GENIDesktop page with the graph and SSH menus. If not, then you may have to disable the popup-blocker or add exception to allow popups from https://genidesktop.netlab.uky.edu in your browser.  [[br]]

    64  Once you set the option to allow pop-up from the https://genidesktop.netlab.uky.edu , you should see new browser window/tab that asks you to accept a self-signed certificate like show below. The GENIDesktop services run on the GDGN Node using an web server running on https. The certificates used to be accepted by you when presented in the browser.

    72 You may see multiple pages like these , one from each Global Node (or GN Node) if your slice has nodes from multiple aggregates (AM) . You have to accept each one of them (Self signed cert pages).
    73 If you know that you have already accepted these pages and still have problems please email genidesktop-admins@netlab.uky.edu for help. If you missed or cannot see the pages to accept the Self Signed certificate messages, launch the SSH module (button) as a workaround which would force the page. Make sure to watch for it this time.
