  9. Contact the redirector and verify if the cmsd is integrated properly with the rest of the federation.
    • The best way to check, if you know their xrootd endpoint:
      xrdcp -d 1 -f root://$HOSTNAME//store/mc/SAM/GenericTTbar/GEN-SIM-RECO/CMSSW_5_3_1_START53_V5-v1/0013/CE4D66EB-5AAE-E111-96D6-003048D37524.root - > /dev/null
      The following should also work:
      xrdcp -d 1 -f r root://$SITENAME//store/mc/SAM/GenericTTbar/GEN-SIM-RECO/CMSSW_5_3_1_START53_V5-v1/0013/CE4D66EB-5AAE-E111-96D6-003048D37524.root - > /dev/null
  10. Verify that the xrootd configuration of a site is working by accessing directly from the global redirector
