     1== How to use Omni during a Clearinghouse maintenance window ==
     2
     3'''Problem'''
     4Omni will download either you user or slice credential from the clearinghouse during each call you make to an aggregate.  If the clearinghouse is down for maintenance, then you can't do this. 
     5
     6'''Solution'''
     7If you download your user credential and slice credentials before the outage you can continue to act on and reserve resources at aggregates (although you can't make calls to the clearinghouse).
     8
     9To download your user credential into a file:
     10{{{
     11omni.py getusercred -o
     12}}}
     13
     14To download slice credentials you might use during the window:
     15{{{
     16omni.py getslicecred MySlice -o
     17}}}
     18
     19In both cases, the output will tell you the name of a file where the credential was stored.
     20
     21To use the credentials use the `--usercredfile` and `--slicecredfile` options with Omni.
     22{{{
     23omni.py -a ig-gpo sliverstatus myslice --slicecredfile myslice-cred.xml
     24omni.py -a ig-gpo listresources --usercredfile sedwards-portal-usercred.xml
     25}}}
