# Steps for Blue Waters

## 1. Connect to Blue Waters

```bash
ssh -Y -l USERNAME bwbay.ncsa.illinois.edu
```

Note: Make sure to replace `USERNAME` with your username!

Input your password at the prompt and hit `Enter`

## 2. Queue up an interactive job:

```bash
qsub -X -I -l nodes=2:ppn=32:xe -l walltime=09:00:00
```

Then wait for it to go through.

## 3. Setup your environment

```bash
source /scratch/training/instr050/moose_environment
```

## 4. Clone MOOSE

```bash
mkdir projects
cd projects
git clone https://github.com/idaholab/moose.git
```

## 5. Compile the first tutorial step

```bash
cd moose/tutorials/darcy_thermo_mech/step1_diffusion
make -j 8
```

This will take about 30 minutes.  All of the subsequent steps should be much faster.

## 6. Run the first step

```bash
cd problems
aprun -n 1 ../darcy_thermo_mech-opt -i step1.i
```
