Installing UiO linux(es) on Dell Laptops

The BIOS must be configured in a specific way to PXE boot UiO Linux

Accessing file shares from remote

When accessing file shares via CIFS/SMB from outside of NCMM, we recommend tunneling the connection through SSH. For example, for biotin2:

  • ssh -L 10139:localhost:139 USERNAME@biotin2.hpc.uio.no
  • connect to smb://localhost:10139 (for example, in macOS via "Connect to Server"), enter your login and password and select the correct network share

Instead of port 10139 you can use any other port in the range of 1024-65535.

Software

Adobe Cloud

Problem: User does not have access to the Apps tab of the Adobe Cloud panel app.

Solution:

Windows

Exit the Creative Cloud application.

Open File Explorer and navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\OOBE\Configs.

Move the ServiceConfig file to the desktop and confirm Administrator privileges if prompted.

Right-click the file and open with Notepad.

Change the following value:

<name>AppsPanel</name><visible>false</visible>

to

<name>AppsPanel</name><visible>true</visible>

Save and close the file

Move the file back to the folder it was in (C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\OOBE\Configs) and confirm Administrator privileges if prompted.

Restart the computer (not sure if this is needed - logging out and in of the Adobe app might be enough).

Apps panel should now be available.

Open Finder, click Go in the menubar, and then Go to Folder...

Type /Library/Application Support/Adobe/OOBE/Configs
