LinuX Services (LXS) @ NCP


The LinuX Services (LXS) is the interactive logon service to Linux for all NCP users.

Currently a small cluster of four (04) public machines is made available for user logins. All machines in the cluster are virtual machines (VMs) running under the VMware virtualized infrastructure. The machines are provided for interactive work of users. The machines are maintained and managed by the IT Department.

The machines are running Scientific Linux CERN 5 (SLC5) x86_64 (64 bit) operating system. All machines are accessible under the DNS alias lxs.ncp.edu.pk. All machines in the cluster run a common user environment and directory services (based on LDAP)
