IT Overview

The following gives an overview of PPE IT and some departmental and university wide IT services.

Accounts

A PPE group member will have serveral accounts:

Account Responsible
PPE linux account - access to the PPE linux desktops PPE System admin
GUPHYSICS Windows - access to the PPE (and departmental) windows desktops Mainly Departmental IT (but the PPE System admin can reset passwords)
Email account (also used for access to departmental linux machine, e.g. login.physics.gla.ac.uk) Departmental IT
GUID - used for many university wide services (e.g. VPN service) Computing Service, see http://www.gla.ac.uk/services/it/forstaff/guid/ to create on account

The Email, GUPHYSICS and PPE account will be setup as part of getting started in the PPE group. Other accounts will require deliberate action to setup.

Information / Documentation Sources

This TWiki Web (the IT Web) accessable at https://ppes8.physics.gla.ac.uk/twiki/bin/view/IT/WebHome covers a lot PPE specific IT issues. Please take the time to look at the TWiki for IT information. If the layout of the TWiki is confusing then please use the TWiki search function. The search link is to the upper part of the left hand sidebar of TWiki pages. The TWiki has several other Webs (ATLAS, DetDev, ScotGrid) and well as the TWiki Web which contains documentation on using the TWiki.

For departmental matters there is the [[http://www.physics.gla.ac.uk/ITMatters/][IT Matters] web site, which amongst other things has the list of wireless access codes.

University wide the main page for Computing Service is http://www.gla.ac.uk/services/it/.
