Completed project: HPS integration with AMS account generation

Primary UITS contact: Peg Lindenlaub

Completed: March 28, 2008

Description: The High Performance Systems (HPS) group worked with AMS to add Big Red, Libra, RDC, and Quarry to the itaccounts.iu.edu web pages to facilitate account generation on these clusters.

Milestones and status:

  • October 1: Big Red and Quarry available on the Account Management Service web page, http://itaccounts.iu.edu/
  • November 26: Libra available on http://itaccounts.iu.edu/
  • March 13: RDC available on http://itaccounts.iu.edu/

Comment process: Send email to HPS.

Benefits:

  • GIDs were synced across all HPS clusters.
  • Kerberos data is used to disable/delete accounts.
  • User information was loaded into a Postgres database managed by HPS staff and will be used to report usage on the clusters.
  • AMS account information was synced with the /etc/passwd files on the clusters.

Primary client: IU students, faculty, and staff and IU affiliates

Client impact: IU students, faculty, and staff and IU affiliates may now easily request accounts on HPS systems. Accounts are created within an hour of the request and a confirmation is sent via email to the individual who made the request. Automating this process has greatly improved turnaround time on account requests for our customers.
