      • Use the same login information you used previously on the old portal
    2. Follow the instructions to create a certificate
  2. Point your tool at the new user certificate
    1. If you are using omni, please following the instruction below in "Action needed to use Omni".

      1. Download the certificate
      2. Use the new user certificate with your tool

Action needed to use Omni

For your convenience, the following is an expanded version of the instructions found on the portal in the section "Option 1: Automatic omni configuration" on the Profile page: https://portal.geni.net/secure/profile.php

  1. Make sure you are running omni 2.3.1 or later.
    1. To determine the version of an existing omni installation, run:
             $ omni.py --version
      
    2. If necessary, update to Omni 2.3.1
      1. Download the software: http://software.geni.net/local-sw/download&software=gcf-2.3.1.tar.gz
      2. Install the software: http://trac.gpolab.bbn.com/gcf/wiki/QuickStart
  1. Download a new omni bundle (this will contain your certificate and

other files needed for configuring omni).

  1. Browse and login to the new portal: https://portal.geni.net/secure/omni-bundle.php
    1. Use the same login information you used previously on the old portal
    2. Be sure to select which project you would like to be the default for running experiments in GENI. You can always change the project that is used with the -r command line option of Omni.
  2. Download and save the bundle at:
       	     ~/Downloads/omni-bundle.zip
    
  1. Configure omni using omni-configure.py distributed with omni:
    	$ omni-configure.py
    

  1. (Optional) You may find it helpful to clear the passphrase from your cert/key:
            $ clear-passphrases.py
    
  1. Test omni:
       	$ omni.py -a ig-gpo getversion
    

The output should look similar to this:
