  • LPC Computing quick links - find setup documentation and troubleshooting information for most cmslpc issues
  • Community support mailing list: lpc-howto (click here to self-subscribe)
  • cmslpc issues: Submit a trouble ticket with Fermilab LPC Service Portal
    • Use your Fermilab services username and password
    • Video example of submitting incident about EOS problems: Show me how
    • The Fermilab LPC Service Portal is preferred for cmslpc computing issues, see below to for instructions on how to open a ticket about other Fermilab services
    • You can also contact the Fermilab Service Desk at the ground floor of Wilson Hall 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, or phone (630) 840-2345
  • Fermilab specific problems (not cmslpc computing): Submit a trouble ticket with Fermilab Service Portal
    • Use your Fermilab services username and password
      • be sure to choose E-891/919 (CMS) as your VO/experiment to facilitate routing
    • Examples of problems to report here: FNAL telephone system, FNAL listserv, FNAL email
    • Web Portal View: Click on "Get Help", and click on "Something Broken, Report an Issue"
    • Classic view (you would have had to modify your ServiceNow to show this): If you don't see the list of ticket types and icons, click on "Service Request Catalog", otherwise navigate to the bottom right "Other" category and click on "Report an Issue"
    • Do NOT choose a specific Scientific Computing group for a ticket as it may not be handled in a timely fashion, for cmslpc computing issues, the LPC Service Portal "Get Help" routes tickets directly to the on call group for triage, handling. They may re-assign your ticket.
    • You can also phone the Fermilab Service Desk at the ground floor of Wilson Hall 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, or phone (630) 840-2345
