Prepare an Appropriate Virtual Machine (VM)
*** Prepare one of these VM’s for use during the sessions. This is IMPORTANT since there is no time allocated for this step in the workshop agenda.***
VM’s are distributed by the workshop to maximize the time you can spend learning Shibboleth. You will need to decide whether to install the software in a Windows or Linux (CentOS 6.5) VM environment and whether to host the VM on your laptop or in a virtual environment.
We recommend doing the installation on a VM on your laptop.
If you choose to use your laptop, bring a laptop with the appropriate VMWare distribution installed and tested. If you choose to work in an existing online VM hosting environment, please have the VM running prior to your arrival.
Should you elect to deploy to a VM hosted elsewhere, you will need to be aware of firewalls, NATs, and other issues that may prevent communication with that VM from the training environment. We have tried to ensure open egress from the classroom environment, but since our venues are graciously provided by others, we can’t make any guarantees. You will also need to gently interpret the instructions and translate them into your environment. The trainers will not have time during the sessions to help troubleshoot problems specific to your environment.
For detailed, specific requirements, please see the linked Wiki pages here: https://spaces.internet2.edu/x/HILYAg
The VMs are located in a Box folder. Be aware that particularly the Windows files are very large and will take awhile to download: https://internet2.box.com/s/u5gue9vn38isb5leefzj
Please note that:
You can also preview the curriculum, if you like, using a link from the wiki page: https://spaces.internet2.edu/x/HILYAg
OBTAIN YOUR NAME BADGE and other important meeting materials outside the training room, which opens at 8:00 a.m. We suggest you arrive by 8:30, to allow enough time to check in, browse the beverages, and get your laptop up and running.
CASUAL ATTIRE is suggested. All software used is thread-safe, so steel-toed boots, hard hats, and leather gloves are strictly optional.
BEVERAGES AND LUNCH: We do *not* provide breakfast in the morning, although we do endorse the concept that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That said, coffee, tea, soft drinks and water will be available and there will be a mid-morning snack. Lunch *is* provided as part of your registration and there will be an afternoon snack break, as well.
If you have any questions about the workshop or its technical content, please send a note to .
