If you're a Mac or Linux user, you can extract your DN from your certificate with the following command (the point of the Python script is to automagically convert the DN to the right format):
openssl x509 -in ~/.globus/usercert.pem -noout -subject | python -c "import sys; print ','.join(reversed(sys.stdin.read().strip()[9:].split('/')[1:]))"

To get on SuperMUC you will need gsissh which is part of the Globus Toolkit . Download and install the version for your operating system. On a Mac it will be put under
/Library/Globus/bin. You will want to add it to your
.bash_profile path. You will want to set-up your trust roots by running
myproxy-get-trustroots -b -s myproxy.lrz.de -p 80. Also, you need to create a proxy (a short-lived copy) of your certificate by running
grid-proxy-init and typing your certificate passphrase. After that you can log on by running
gsissh gridmuc.lrz.de -p 2222.
You can put your intermediate results on
$SCRATCH and use
$WORK to store your data and software.
Optional: You can create directories under
$WORK and make them readable/writable by the ComPat project group (pr92ge) to share software or data with your colleagues. Use the command
chmod g+rw $WORK.
To get data in and out of SuperMUC you can use GridFTP command (
globus-url-copy -r ./filetoupload.txt gsiftp://gridmuc.lrz.de/~/ to copy from your machine to your home on SuperMUC; -r means recursive and also copies directories). Or use or the convenient Globus Online website.
To use Globus Online follow the instructions below:
Globus IDas your organisation, and click
No thanks, continuewhen it's asking if you want to use an existing account.
myproxy.lrz.deand you can do this by running
myproxy-init -l username -s myproxy.lrz.de -p 80. This username can be freely chosen and is not related to anything else. When asked for myproxy passphrase invent a new password specific to myproxy.
Extensive instructions on using SuperMUC can be found on the LRZ website:
