This tutorial is geared to new MSI users and will provide an introduction to the facilities and computational resources at MSI. The quick start portion of the tutorial will provide instructions for accessing these resources such as setting up accounts, submitting jobs on the various machines, etc. We will conclude with an introduction of the MSI Unix environment, including hands-on examples. The UNIX operating system is a fundamental part of the MSI experience for people using the labs’ Linux workstations and core systems. Many of MSI’s scientific codes require that the user understand basic UNIX operating commands and functionality. This tutorial will give the novice user a hands-on guide to using the UNIX operating environment to navigate around and use MSI resources.
