Ergon: First connection on the archive server

  • Every IDRIS user has an account on the Ergon archive server.
  • The password and the Ergon connection shell (either bash or tcsh) are shared by the Ada, Adapp and Turing machines. You just need to change it on one of the machines and it will immediately be effective on all the others as well.
  • By default, during the first connection to Ergon, all the users will have the password and shell inherited from Ada.
  • The Ergon archive server is accessible via ssh both from any authorised machine exterior to IDRIS and from any internal IDRIS machine. In addition, files stored on Ergon are directly accessible in read/write, from Adapp, by using the environment variable $ARCHIVE.
