    4444Open the file `~/.gcf/omni_config` using either vim or emacs. Close to the top of the file you will see two parameters called `default_cf` and `users`. Your username should be at least listed in the user section. Look for the sections in the file that are named `[pg]` and  `[<username>]`.

     46In the `[<username>]` section, the information need for logging-in to reserved compute resources are provided. It includes your unique user URN and a public key that would be uploaded to the hosts that you will reserve during the tutorial.

    4648In the `[pg]` section you configure Omni to use your personal information. The cert and the key attribute point to files that we have manually downloaded from pgeni.gpolab.bbn.com. This is equivalent to the Download action of Flack.

    5050Another interesting section to look at is the `[aggregate-nicknames]` sections. Flack already knows the URL for all the AMs and present you a list of AMs to choose from using a short, descriptive name. In Omni a user is required to pass the URL for each call to the GENI AM API. In this section the user gets a chance to provide short descriptive names to the URLs that are easier to memorize and use.
