    1316Choose a name for your slice.  This name needs to be unique among all the slices in GENI.  To ensure uniqueness it is recommended that the slice name begin with your username and be followed with a descriptive string.  For example, if your username was smith, you might choose a slice name of smithTmix.  Enter your slice name and a description of the slice (optional) in the text boxes, and then click the Create slice button.

    2534Before leaving this page, note the Login line of each of the two nodes listed.  Each login line will contain the hostname of the node, for example  You will need the hostame of both nodes later in this tutorial.  You can write them down, or return to this details page later.    Click on the Slice <slicename> link at the top of the page to return to the Slice page.  Click on Resource Status to view the detailed status of the resources.  Likely the status page will show that the hosts are not yet ready.  The resources have been allocated, but the nodes are being imaged, and booted.  This process can take up to 10 minutes.
