Externally Accessing CADES Resources - XCAMS Accounts

You may find you need access to CADES resources from off-campus.

This guide is intended to provide external ORNL users (XCAMS account holders) guidance on how to access some of the most common CADES resources. If you need further assistance, you can contact the CADES team.

📝 Note: ORNL UCAMS account holders should see this guide as these users have other access methods available.

CADES External Login Node

CADES maintains an external login node cades-extlogin1.ornl.gov.

New Users: To log in to this node, you must request membership in the cades-misc group via the XCAMS portal. CADES will begin requiring external users to have an ORNL host and cyber-PAS to be approved for access to this login node.

  • If you are not sure if you already have a XCAMS account, visit this site and use the "Forgot your username?" and "Forgot your password?" links to investigate.
    • If you find that you have an account, but need access to the CADES-misc resource, contact us.
    • Creating multiple xcams accounts is not recommended.
  • UCAMS account holders should not create a new XCAMS account, but see here instead.

To login to the external access node use your XCAMS ID as your username to SSH:

ssh username@cades-extlogin1.ornl.gov

From here you can access internal resources, including:

  • OpenStack Horizon Web Interface
  • CADES SHPC Condos
  • ORNL Internal Websites
  • User Documentation: a copy of CADES user documentation is regularly saved to tmp/cades-user-guide.pdf
