ATCA Shelf

Just a page of some notes on the ATCA shelf in the EDG.

Since I am not sure how this shelf will be used, I didn't want to change any network settings or other settings in case we have to match what other people are doing.

Here's a short video of me logging in to the system

Sysadmin Notes

This can be ignored because we're ended up using a windows computer instead of a linux one. But in case we ever switch back to linux this info might be helpful.
[root@michelson rules.d]# lsusb
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 8087:0a2b Intel Corp. 
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0403:6001 Future Technology Devices International, Ltd FT232 Serial (UART) IC <--- THIS IS THE CABLE
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
The device is
crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 188, 0 May 15 10:47 /dev/ttyUSB0
However, we'd like any user to be able to use this device. I created /etc/udev/rules.d/12-uc.rules with:
SUBSYSTEM=="tty", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0403", ATTRS{idProduct}=="6001", MODE="0666"
After a reboot, the device is:
[root@michelson ~]# ll /dev/ttyUSB0 
crw-rw-rw- 1 root dialout 188, 0 May 15 10:52 /dev/ttyUSB0
