  1. Geography Computing Resources September 20, 2010

  2. Geography Computing Team - Introductions • Dylan Parenti – I.T. Manager / ICM Coordinator • Guylene Gadal – Web Developer / Linux/UNIX Admin. • Libby White – Computer Resource Specialist • Jon Hall – Web Programmer (jon.hall@geog.ucsb.edu) • Michael Hino – I.T. Volunteer • Best address for computer help is: (request@geog.ucsb.edu)

  3. Network • Over 300 computers • Over 500 users • 3 major subnets, 128.111.nnn.0/24 (where nnn = 104,106,234) • Unless, you decide to be fully wireless, your office computer will be on one of these • Never edit your IP address information! • 2 computer instructional labs • Jeffrey L. Star Lab (Ellison Hall, Rm. 2610) • Descartes Lab (Ellison Hall, Rm. 3620) • 1 grad student-only computing lab • Spatial@UCSB Lab (Ellison Hall, Rm. 2616) • 7 classrooms • Ellison Hall, Rm. 1714 • Ellison Hall, Rm. 2609 • Ellison Hall, Rm. 2620 • Ellison Hall, Rm. 3621 • Ellison Hall, Rm. 4824 • Ellison Hall, Rm. 5824 • Phelps Hall, Rm. 2525

  4. Network • Buildings • Ellison Hall • Faculty, Grad, and Staff Offices (1st , 4th, and 5th floors, mainly) • Descartes Lab (3rd floor) • Star Lab (2nd floor) • Spatial@UCSB Lab (2nd floor) • Hydrology Lab (3rd floor) • Field Prep Space (1st floor) • VIPER Lab (3rd floor) • Human-Environmental Dynamics Lab (5th floor) • GeoTransportation Lab (3rd floor) • McFadden Lab (3rd floor) • Ocean Physics Group (1st floor) • Climate Hazards Group (4th floor) • SpaCE Group Lab (5th floor)

  5. Network • Phelps Hall • Soils Group Labs (2nd & 3rd floor) • Spatial@UCSB Center (3rd floor) • Wet-Lab Classroom, Rm. 2525 • Marine Science Building • Washburn Lab • Siegel Lab • Noble Hall • King Lab • Bren Hall • 4th floor offices • Still Lab (1st floor) • Off-site server room

  6. Accounts • Optional UNIX accounts • Assigned password • You can change your Unix account password using a terminal program, such as Secure Shell Client • e.g., on latitude.geog.ucsb.edu, use yppasswd username and follow prompts • Password initially matches e-mail password • Don’t give it out to anyone • Forgot it? Visit Dylan for a new one (passwords never e-mailed out) • Persist as long as you are here

  7. Accounts • Good Password rules: • No dictionary words • Seven or more characters • Mixed upper/lower case • Punctuation ~!@#$%^&*()_-+=|,/. • Numbers • Spaces not allowed (generally a bad idea in UNIX, anyway)

  8. Accounts • Class accounts for students • These are UNIX accounts. For instance, Jane Q. Doe taking Geography 184 would have an account named jqd184 • But, they expire quarterly/yearly • Useful for students’ class-related webpages • Disk storage reserved for class accounts – “keep area tidy”

  9. Accounts • E-mail aliases • username@geog.ucsb.edu bounces over to username@umail.ucsb.edu • Webmail interface for Umail accounts

  10. Accounts • E-mail accounts continued • U-Mail: http://www.umail.ucsb.edu • E-Mail policies: • University of California Electronic Communications Policy: http://www.ucop.edu/ucophome/policies/ec/ • UCSB Interim Electronic Communications Implementing Guidelines: http://www.policy.ucsb.edu/vcas/isc/InterimECImpGuide5612.pdf

  11. Computer Labs • Descartes Lab • Electronic Access Keycard required • Access for enrolled undergrads until 5 p.m. • Podium with ceiling-mounted projector • UPS protection • Computers • 20 i7 SSD workstations (Win7 64-bit) • 22-inch LCD displays • Xerox Phaser 7760DX color printer

  12. Computer Labs • Star Lab • Electronic Access Keycard required • Open 24/7 for grad students (as long as you can get into the building) • Open 24/5 for undergrads (without grad supervision) • HP LaserJet 5700dn duplex printer • UPS protection • Computers • 35 Core 2 Duo CPU for students (WinXP SP3 32-bit) • 1 Core 2 Duo CPU for the instructor (Station #32) • 22-inch LCD monitors

  13. Computer Labs • Lab Policies • Use common sense • No food, beverages, bikes, skateboards • Logoff computers before leaving • Yield to incoming classes • Surveillance cameras recording

  14. Labs/Classrooms • Electronic Keycard Access for entry • I.T. staff will “green-light” the doors, so that keycard access isn’t required for classes/sections • If you want to schedule sections/meetings outside of regularly-scheduled times, send a request to the request queue to “green-light” the room. • Keep doors closed; holding/propping them open sounds an alarm • Close windows/turn off lights if you are the last to leave/log off computers/push the chairs in/clean white board • If you are teaching/TAing a class, please verify that podium is locked when you are done!

  15. Podiums

  16. Podiums • Locked – keys checked out from office staff (Bernadette) • Key may be issued for an entire quarter, and must be returned at the end of each quarter • Top tray • Some have a dedicated WinXP Laptop with MS Office 2007 Pro • Mouse, projector remote/laser pointer, and power adapter • LCD Clock for timing student presentations • Locked Cabinet • Basic DVD player in Star and Ellison 1714 • Top tray laptop plugs into Ethernet port on side • Documentation, and USB presenter • Microphone/speaker (checkout), if needed • Geography website has an overview of the podiums, with photographs

  17. Projectors • Panasonic, ceiling-mounted, VGA, some have HDMI. • Path of least resistance: go wired (open access) • Podium laptop resolution is native to projector’s (1024 x 768 pixels) • When using your laptop, if it can be set to 1024 x 768, choose that • No software required • 10’ x 6’ pull-down screen in 2609, 2620 classroom • 8’ x 6’ motorized screen in 3621 classroom • 10’ x 6’ motorized screen in Star, Spatial, and Descartes Labs • 12’ pull-down screen in Phelps 2525 • Best to turn on projector first, attach laptop, then turn laptop on

  18. Department Resources • ArcGIS Servers • Hosts student projects in GIS class series • Hosts the UCSB Interactive Campus Map • Application server (called California) for remote desktop logins • Request access through the request queue • Has most major licensed programs • Printers • Star Lab: HP LaserJet 5700dn • Descartes Lab: Xerox Phaser 7760DX • Spatial@UCSB Lab: HP LaserJet 3000dtn • Ellison 4th floor: HP 4200dtn • Ellison 5th floor: HP Color LaserJet 9050dtn • Community PC (called Eclipse) in Ellison 1832 • Has most major licensed programs • Attached scanner • Ideal as a station for printing TA materials

  19. Department Resources • Printers • A new print management system will be in place hopefully by Winter Quarter. • Currently, print stations release jobs, and are charged to your BARC account. • Color printing more expensive than black & white. • Classes you’ll teach/TA will have accounts to charge to. • Stay tuned…announcements to be sent out via email.

  20. Department Resources • Mailing Lists • Official lists • allfaculty@geog • allgrad@geog • all@geog (goes to everyone except undergrads) • Private • gradb@geog (private grad student list/forum only) • Bulletin Boards • http://bbs.geog.ucsb.edu

  21. Campus Resources • Wireless • Managed by campus, NOT Geography • Need a UCSBnetID (which means you’ll need a UCSB-affiliated e-mail address beforehand to get one) • Select areas on campus; Geography classrooms, computing labs and conference rooms • Map of campus coverage on the ICM • https://noc.ucsb.edu/wireless/ for more information • Once connected, Geography networks accessed via SSH/SFTP client programs • Library • Alexandria Digital Library • Map and Imagery Library (MIL) • Digital research journals • UCSB VPN Service • http://www.oit.ucsb.edu/network_services/VPN_service/default.asp • Windows and MacOS X clients

  22. Web Pages • Department Web Server (established by webmaster, TA/class content created by you, managed by you and the webmaster) • Personal web pages (created & managed by you) • First, establish a UNIX account with I.T. staff via request queue • Basic content, research topics, etc. • http://www.geog.ucsb.edu/~username • Create public_html folder/directory • index.html – your default ~username page • Use SFTP/WinSCP/FileZilla etc. to transfer/command line • Map network drive in Windows Explorer (unstable) • Unencrypted passwords for Samba access

  23. What Services Do I Get? Core Services Provided Include: • Geography Email alias to Umail • Bulletin Board Service • PDA/GPS units for field instruction use only • Wireless Access through UCSB OIT • One static, in-office, IP address per grad student • Use of the Spatial@UCSB computing lab • Oracle UCSB CorporateTime Calendar account • Allowed to install Secure Shell Client, MATLAB, ArcGIS, ENVI+IDL on University-owned machines • ESRI Virtual Campus classes • http://training.esri.com/campus/catalog/licenses/courselist.cfm?id=46 • Requires user account registration setup (free) • Allowed to install Symantec Endpoint Protection software on any machine connected to our network

  24. What Services Do I Get? Additional Services for Recharge: • Printing • Hardware troubleshooting for grant research-owned computers • Assistance with your own machines (requires advisor approval for recharge) • Poster printing at the UCSB Institute for Quantum & Complex Dynamics (iQCD) at $40.00 per poster.

  25. Other Stuff • Not a good idea to save stuff on the computers in the labs • Please do not install non-work-related programs on University-owned computers • However, ask for I.T. help for something you want installed on computing lab computers for sections that you teach • Student passwords for Windows computers in the labs • Security vigilance • Non-Geography enrolled students are not allowed in computing labs • Mind your laptops and belongings
