Connecting to the UNICORE Testgrid

The UNICORE Testgrid offers a very easy access to a full featured UNICORE demo site for new and interested users. The Testgrid allows users to create, submit and monitor grid jobs and workflows. The Testgrid includes the latest version of all components. A certificate and user account will be created automatically.

To connect to the testgrid, both the UNICORE Rich Client (URC) and the UNICORE commandline client (UCC) can be used very easily. After downloading and installing the client, you can connect to the testgrid as follows

For URC, select "First steps/UNICORE Testgrid" from the Welcome screen, which can always be opened by selecting "Help/Welcome" from the main menu.

For UCC, run "ucc connect-to-testgrid" and follow the instructions.

Please note: the lifetime of your certificate is 30 days as it should only be used for testing purposes. The Testgrid resources are limited and only small jobs (short duration, low resource consumption) should be submitted.
