Student UNIX Account Information

ITS is pleased to announce the availability of Delmar.umsl.edu to replace Admiral.umsl.edu

Delmar is primarily intended for students requiring a Unix-based environment, especially for courses in Computer Science and Information Systems.  Home directories on Delmar will be freshly created.

The Admiral server will be decommissioned on Friday, August 12, 2016.  On this date, the contents of Admiral home directories will be made available on Delmar in a temporary, read-only directory.  Students will be responsible for copying any files they wish to keep to their home directory on Delmar.

Due to major differences between the operating systems and underlying hardware, Delmar will be unable to run programs that were compiled to run on Admiral.  In general, most programs used in programming classes can be re-compiled to run on Delmar.

Delmar will provide a SQL client for coursework utilizing database development.

Please be aware that Delmar will not provide space for publishing websites, however instructors may request accounts for their classes to publish websites to a server intended for this purpose.
