@mkroetzsch and @AlexKrauseTUD, can you take the two steps mentioned in the Description of this task? If you run into issues, please ping.

@Nuria I /think/ we need your approval for the access to happen. If that's the case, can you tell me what's the most efficient way for me to explain the project and history to you? :)

I have signed the Acknowledgement of Wikimedia Server Access Responsibilities.

My labs user name is "mkroetzsch". Is this what is required for the third item or should I also follow the rest of the request procedure at ?

P.S. Alex is on vacation and possibly disconnected. His reply might therefore be delayed. He is officially back in two weeks.

@mkroetzsch your labs username should be enough. Please don't take any further step unless we ask you, too. Thanks for taking care of the rest. :)

Ok, this request actually needs a few more things for processing, in addition to whats been asked:

  • - both users must sign the L3 doc
  • - both users must append their public ssh keys
  • - both users need to provide their preferred login names, as well as their wikitech usernames (as we base UID in production off labs, which is generated from wikitech)
  • - groups will also need to include bastiononly group (or they cannot get onto the network to access the statistics host(s)).

Regarding my remaining todos:

  • I have signed the L3 doc
  • Here is my dedicated production-only SSH key:
  • My preferred login name is "mkroetzsch", same as my user name on labs. My wikitech user name is "Markus Kroetzsch".
  • have signed the L3 doc
  • I have acreated a useraccount through named AlexKrauseTUD
  • My public SSH Key:
  • My desired username: "akrause" and my Wikitech user name is "AlexKrauseTUD" if I am not mistaken

Sorry to bother, somehow my corresponding private key file got corrupted and is unreadable, here is my new dedicated public key:

My apologies for this inconvenience...

@AlexKrauseTUD : I've updated your key, you should be able to login now.

Thanks, now I can login :)
As an information, if you are not already aware of this (I did not find any information within the ssh configuration notes):
One can not use Putty Private key (.ppk) files for login. It seems to be only possible with OpenSSH private key files.
