Hey Gil can I use the username "gbregman" instead of "gbregman@gil-vm"? our gateway is not accepting usernames with the "@" sign

Hey Gil Bregman,

You should have access to the Sepia lab now. Please verify you're able to connect to the vpn and ssh using the private key matching the pubkey you provided.

Be sure to check out the following links for final workstation setup steps:

Most developers choose to schedule runs from the shared teuthology VM. For information on that, see

If you plan on scheduling tests, one of the options you'll need to set with teuthology-suite is -p, --priority. Please refrain from using a priority lower than 101 (lower number = higher priority). When a high priority is used, it locks up too many testnodes at once and prevents other developers from testing changes.

I try to follow the instructions in but fails. I'm using a VirtBox VM running on a Windows system. The VM runs as a Red Hat 9.2 machine:

[root@gil-vm ~]# cat /etc/os-release
NAME="Red Hat Enterprise Linux" 
VERSION="9.2 (Plow)" 
PRETTY_NAME="Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9.2 (Plow)" 

REDHAT_BUGZILLA_PRODUCT="Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9" 
REDHAT_SUPPORT_PRODUCT="Red Hat Enterprise Linux" 
[root@gil-vm ~]#

When I try to restart the openvpn service I get an error:

[root@gil-vm ~]# systemctl restart openvpn-client@sepia
Job for openvpn-client@sepia.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
See "systemctl status openvpn-client@sepia.service" and "journalctl -xeu openvpn-client@sepia.service" for details.
[root@gil-vm ~]#


[root@gil-vm openvpn]# systemctl status openvpn-client@sepia.service

It seems that the configuration file is not found. I can see it in:

[root@gil-vm openvpn]# ll /etc/openvpn/sepia.conf
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 17 Jul 27 17:57 /etc/openvpn/sepia.conf -> sepia/client.conf

[root@gil-vm openvpn]#

anything I am doing wrong?

I used this hash "gbregman YfVXOuxi4a6ya8FOLzugGQ b852da781c70bcee54065b86bee3d0b0ac6796bb1d2660616d3ae83a071ac6d6"
