Creating a Context from Cloudlab Credentials¶
You can use the generic build-context tool included with geni-lib to build a context definition for use with Cloudlab. You will need the following files before you start:
- A Cloudlab x509 credential in .pem format
- The name of a project of which you are a member
- An ssh public key
Given the above, you can run the build-context tool directly:
build-context --type cloudlab --cert /path/to/cloudlab.pem \ --pubkey /path/to/ssh_key.pub --project projectname
Replacing the paths and project name with values appropriate for your environment. This will create a context definition which will be loaded automatically when using the genish or ipython interfaces, and can be loaded into your custom scripts using geni.util.loadContext().
