The Adhoc VM is a virtual machine minimally administered by SAC, hosted on osgeo4 at OSU OSL and used for adhoc, and development activities related to OSGeo projects. ]] It differs from the Projects VM primarily in that:

  • sudo access is granted less restrictively.
  • greater risks to system operations are acceptable, as critical services are not run here.

The VM is reachable by ssh at Anyone in the has ssh access, and anyone in this group can add new people via the link. Sudo access can be provided by existing sudoer's by adding folks to the sudoers group in /etc/group.

For the most part SAC is providing no backup, or detailed administration for this server beyond some security patches, and ldap setup. It is up to the users of the VM to detail their use here, and to cooperate so as to avoid stepping on each others toes. It is a good idea to segregate activities into directories under /osgeo named after projects or users.

Existing services hosted on the Ad-hoc VM:
