Testing GEMINI on the GENI desktop using different credentials


I began by going through the GENI desktop tutorial but quickly encountered issues. It was later determined that the rspec in the tutorial is from a previous version(v2) and is no longer supported by UNIS.

My emulab.net credentials allowed me to access the the GENI desktop quite easily. Launching flack from these credentials was also straight forward. However, when I tried to initialize my slices the results varied drastically. Sometimes they would easily initialize. Other times I would not be able to initialize at all so I would logout of the desktop and log back in. Then it allowed me to initialize my slice. Often I would get an error telling me that there was no global node found even when there was.

Once my slice was initialized and I was on the desktop, the instrumentize icon didn't appear. Eventually it did appear when I logged out and then back on. A few times the instrumentizing occurred without me pressing the icon. I had a difficult time getting the graphs to appear also but was eventually able to figure it out.

My portal account did not give me easy access into the GENI desktop. I was able to use copy and paste my credentials into it to gain access. Flack did not save these credentials so when it was launched from the desktop it was not ready to use. It asked for certificates that I am still unsure of. The Adobe Flash plugin frequently crashed when Flack was launched under these credentials as well. I am also unable to initialize my slices created through the portal.

Testing using Firefox on Unbuntu.

(1)Previously the following error would appear at global node:

Error: gethostbyname(UNKNOWN) failed

***WARNING:Could not get boss info from TMCC

IRODS: experimenting with iticket

iticket for Two_VMs(read): gjqdnx1jCgIa3Of

with command: iget -t gjqdnx1jCgIa3Of /tempZone/home/koneil1/rspecs/Two_VMs.xml

iticket for Two_VMs(write):MgQjgYCEF3QcYxD

iticket for Five_VMs(5 uses): Szq5EQhyFUBiJLm

iticket for folder Three nodes: n1aluV2Hfu8u4CH

iget puts file in currently directory on computer. I have not been able to iget directories(collections) or the files within them using a ticket for the directory.

iget -t n1aluV2Hfu8u4CH tempZone/home/koneil1/rspecs/ThreeNodes/

iget -t n1aluV2Hfu8u4CH tempZone/home/koneil1/rspecs/ThreeNodes/Three_VMs.xml
