> dial dial-1.30> check_proxyIf you don't have a proxy, you will be prompted for your password in the usual manner. If you don't know what a grid proxy is, then ask a local grid expert.
If this is the first you use DIAL, you will also be asked to provide a username.
Next try the command uidtest:

dial-1.30> dialroot -ito install the dialroot support files in that directory. Start the DIAL version of ROOT with the command
dial-1.30> dialrootand then read the job definition with

http://dial02.usatlas.bnl.gov:20010and click on "Primary job repository" view the jobs submitted to the default analysis service. Your job should be at the top. Follow links to view the job properties including subjobs. Update the browser until your job completes (normally about 15 minutes for this job) and then return to the ROOT session.
Use the command
root> get_result()to show the job status and fetch the result, if available. If there is a result with histograms (as there should be for the default application), then the histogram file has been copied back (or linked) to your directory. Start a root browser and navigate to the histograms in the usual manner.
root> TBrowser bFor the default job, you should see a Z-peak if you navigate down to the histogram muon_pair_os_mass.
See the user guide to learn how to modify the analysis task or replace it with your own.
Copy the service URL into a file named scheduler, restart DIAL and submit as before.
