We just learned the hard way that the “Open in Terminal” in OOD’s File Explorer opens a terminal on the OnDemand server, which is a relatively small VM. We had ssh disabled for most users so that did not work. The Clusters - Shell Access is our recommended way as that opens a terminal on a cluster interactive node.
Is there any way to tell the File Explorer to launch the ssh shell on a different machine than the OnDemand server itself? We would prefer that as we could direct the shell to one of our interactive nodes where we police the user load, rather than risking user abusing the relatively underpowered OnDemand VM.
Or perhaps just disable the “Open in Terminal” button in the File Explorer?
