In order to be able to submit jobs on VSC the following lines have to be included in your
export LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 # Alternatively, to suppress this warning, change on the Mac: # Terminal -> Preferences... -> Settings -> Advanced - # - Uncheck the option “Set locale environment variables on startup” - # - Restart Terminal # see also: https://wiki.vsc.ac.at/doku.php?id=doku:osx-mavericks&s=locale

Open a terminal window and type
ssh <username>@vsc2.vsc.ac.at # VSC-2 # OR ssh <username>@vsc3.vsc.ac.at # VSC-3
First, you will be asked to type your password.
Then, you will be asked for your one time password (OTP; sms token which is sent to your mobile phone). This OTP is an additional feature increasing the security of the cluster.
sms sent; please enter otp:
The address <username>@vsc2.vsc.ac.at points to all three login servers of VSC-2:, l21, l22, and l23; <username>@vsc3.vsc.ac.at points to all five login servers of VSC-3: l31, l32, l33, l34, and l35. Connections to one of these addresses are assigned to one of the respective servers in round robin manner. If there is reason for, it is possible to directly connect to a dedicated login server
ssh <username>@l21.vsc.ac.at .. ssh <username>@l23.vsc.ac.at # OR ssh <username>@l31.vsc.ac.at .. ssh <username>@l35.vsc.ac.at
This can be used for troubleshooting. E.g., in order to resolve specific questions, it may be useful that the support team can test your jobs on the same login server as you.
ssh <username>@vsc3.vsc.ac.atwill always ask for a password.
ssh -p 27 <username>@vsc2.vsc.ac.ator
ssh -p 27 <username>@vsc3.vsc.ac.at
scp <filename> <username>@vsc2.vsc.ac.at:~/ # VSC-2 # OR scp <filename> <username>@vsc3.vsc.ac.at:~/ # VSC-3
