ssh common account text login hosts are pinnacle.uark.edu, trestles.uark.edu, and razor.uark.edu. trestles and razor login hosts are deprecated and will be shut down as those clusters are integrated into the pinnacle Slurm scheduler. Each login host presents the same view of your files but has a different job scheduler and job queue (pinnacle Slurm, trestles Torque, razor Torque). The CSCE cluster has an
ssh login host karpinski.uark.edu with separate accounts and files and a Slurm scheduler. The CSCE cluster is also available through https://pinnacle-portal.uark.edu.
ssh client is needed on your workstation to access the ssh login hosts, and a web browser is needed for pinnacle-portal.
ssh clients (and file-transfer
scp,sftp) are usually installed by default on linux and Mac workstations. On Windows 7 or 10 we recommend the stand-alone program PuTTY . With the PuTTY ssh client
putty.exe you will probably also need a file-transfer program from the same site, either
psftp.exe. Windows 10 can install a near-complete clone of Linux including
ssh,scp,sftp called WSL . If you want an explorer-like GUI for ssh and file transfer, there is a free installable download
sshwinsecureshell-3.2.9.exe . If workstation disk space is a consideration, PuTTY is small, sshwinsecureshell medium, WSL large.
ssh hosts using your UArk email name (without @uark.edu) and authenticate with your UArk password. If you don't have a Uark account, we will send you alternate login instructions. In PuTTY and sshwinsecureshell you may need to set the host port on the configuration screen to 22, not 23.
AHPCC doesn't know and can't change UArk passwords, use https://account.uark.edu or ITS support. If you fail UArk authentication three times, you won't be able to login for half an hour. If an AHPCC login host fails to answer or fails to login, contact firstname.lastname@example.org . It is helpful to first try the other two login hosts and/or a protected ITS host such as https://account.uark.edu to help determine if it is a host, network, or account/password issue.
