Activating an Endpoint
When you select an endpoint to transfer data to/from, you may be asked to authenticate with that endpoint:
Transfers are only possible once you have supplied credentials that authenticate your access to the endpoint. This process is known as "activating the endpoint". The endpoint remains active for 24 hours. If your transfer is not completed within that time, you'll get an email from Globus asking you to re-activate the endpoint - upon reactivation, the transfer will continue.
Note: Effective from 15 September 2020, the NeSI Wellington DTN endpoint will be protected by a second factor authentication (2FA). This change will require additional information to be entered in the 'Password' field when you log in. In the 'Username' field, enter your Māui/Mahuika username. In the 'Password' field, your
Password will be equal to
First Factor +
Second Factor e.g.
password123456. (Do not use any additional characters or spaces between your password and the token number.)
Check the status of your endpoints at https://www.globus.org/app/endpoints .
Managing Endpoint Activation
If a transfer is in progress and will not be completed before your credentials expire, extent the activation for a further 24 hours:
On the panel on the RHS of the transfer window, click the Manage Activation Options link.
The default end-point activation time is 24 hrs.
