Members of Sliz lab will generally have six computing accounts:
All computers in the lab should be connected to the SBGrid network. For connecting a personal computer, you will need to email the MAC address of the ethernet card or adaptor to firstname.lastname@example.org . In order to access SBGrid wi-fi network you will need to email your MAC address to email@example.com and request activation on the SBGrid wifi network; to connect, authenticate with your CMCD username and password.
We have two printers in the lab, which are both available from the SBGrid network. ps-laserjet3000dn is located in the wet lab area, ps- brother2270 is located in the SBGrid computing room. Printing will not work if your computer is connected to the HMS Wifi access point (HMS Private or Public).
Personal (OS X / Windows?) systems (sch-jlchoi- imac, ps-wang-macmini, ps-sophia-imac, sb-liz-imac, ps-nozhat-macmini) are administered by the primary user, with support from SBGrid and HMS/BCMP IT.
SBGrid software will be installed in /programs.
All research data should be backed-up . This is an NIH and HMS regulation.
Visiting Students should use HMS CrashPlan for backing up their work directories. (use registration code JJRR-RHW7-UHJW-H7JM).
Postdocs and Graduate Students should always work from a DropBox folder.
Two linux workstations (schl12 and psl2) are fully administered by SBGrid. ps2 (in the 3rd bay) can dual-boot to Windows 7. To login to linux systems, use your CMCD credentials. To login to the windows partition, use the credentials posted over the machine.
Computers running our FPLCs (PS-FPLC1, PS-FPLC2, PS-FPLC3) are managed by HMS IT and backups are done on a daily basis using CrashPlan. They can print to the laboratory printer.
Sliz lab also has access to crystallization-room computers (Gryphon controller, unknown system) Those computers are also managed by HMS IT and backed-up using CrashPlan.
There are several options for support:
rc.hms.harvard.edu - Harvard Medical School Research Computing Support
