SEE Masters PC Lab

Picture of the Masters PC Cluster

The SEE Masters PC lab is located in room 9.154 on level 9 of the Earth and Environment south building - it provides standard IT facilities for all SEE Masters students. Room 9.154 currently contains 28 PCs.

  1. Opening times: MSc students have fob access to 9.154.
  2. Power Save: All PCs in the lab run a power-saving scheme - they shutdown and power off when nobody has logged in for a set time. That means you often have to switch the PC on from the power switch before using it.
  3. Operating Systems: All PCs in both labs run dual-booting Windows/Linux operating systems. The Windows OS is Windows 7, and the Linux OS is CentOS 5.4. A boot-time menu is used to select the operating system - if the PC is currently switched off - switch it on, then at the menu prompt select option 1 (or wait 5 seconds for the default) to boot into Windows, or select option 2 to boot into Linux. To change from one operating system to the other, select the Restart Computer option on the current login screen and be ready to choose the boot-time menu as above.
  4. Usernames: In both Windows and Linux , you should use your normal University (AD) username and password to login.
  5. PC Hardware: The PCs are Stone Series 6 with quad-core, 3GHz i5-2320 CPUs and 4Gb of RAM, 20" wide-screen monitors.
  6. Printers: Room 9.154 contains two Konica Minolta MFD devices. One is currently only available to staff. The other is called PS17. This is an A3/ A4, colour, duplex printer, scanner and photocoper which can be accessed via the University myprint system (requires University printer credits).
  7. Problems: Please report all problems with the lab to Faculty IT support ( support@see.leeds.ac.uk). The IT support room is located in 9.145 (in the same corridor as the 9.154 lab). All the printers are run by central University services, and problems should be reported to the ISS helpdesk ( helpdesk@leeds.ac.uk).
