Research Computing | Using Globus Online with ISU Clusters


In this video will explain how to configure
and use globus online to move files between clusters and to or from your personal workstation.
Globus Online allows you to move files between your laptop, lab server, research computing
center, national supercomputing facility, or any other storage system, using just a
web browser. In a browser, navigate to https://www.globus.org/,
click ‘Log In’ in the upper right corner.•Select Iowa State University for your organization,
click ‘Continue’ then click ‘Log On’ on the next page.•Login with your university
credentials at the familiar login page if you have not previously logged in.•You should
now be on the ‘Transfer Files’ pageInstalling A personal Endpoint•Click on the “Get
Globus Connect Personal” link in the lower right corner of the screen.•Enter a name

be using condodtn. When your endpoint appears, select it.
If authentication is required for the selected endpoint required fields or other instructions
will appear. If you selected an endpoint supported by the ISU HPC Group you will be prompted
to login to hpc-proxy.its.iastate.edu. Username is your ISU NetID
Your password is your ISU password PLUS the six digits generated by Google Authenticator
for access to the condo cluster. You would use ‘Password123456’ for the password
field where ‘123456’ would be the current code from Google Authenticator and ‘Password’
would be your normal password. Once you have logged in on both panes you
will need to navigate to the data you want to copy in one pane (source pane) and navigate
to the location you want it copied to on the other pane(destination pane).
Before you start your copy your look at the transfer settings at the bottom of the page.
The question marks will give a short description of each option.

in the direction of the destination pane. You may now click ‘Activity’ at the top
of the page to see a list of current and prior transfers. Now you can•Install and configure Globus
