Installing MyProxy with VOMS support

This description, based on the official MyProxy instructions, is targeted for the non-expert user and hence provides more details on the individual steps.

First, the tool pacman needs to be installed, which is used to install specific packages of VDT.

tar zxvf pacman-3.20.tar.gz

Second, install the VOMS package via pacman.

mkdir /opt/vdt
cd /opt/vdt/
pacman -get

The third step is to install necessary parts of the Globus Toolkit for MyProxy. One option is to follow these initial setup steps and these MyProxy-globus steps.

mkdir /opt/globus-4.0.5
chown globus:globus /opt/globus-4.0.5
su - globus
export GLOBUS_LOCATION=/opt/globus-4.0.5
./configure --prefix=$GLOBUS_LOCATION
make gsi-myproxy

In case the installation of Globus is not possible, the necessary parts can also be installed via VDT:

pacman -get

After the Globus installation, depending on the actual installation path, the following environment variables should be set:

export GLOBUS_LOCATION=/opt/vdt/globus
export GLITE_LOCATION=/opt/vdt/glite
source /opt/vdt/
chown globus:globus /opt/vdt/globus

Before installing MyProxy itself from source, some VOMS libraries need to be built beforehand. This can be done by building them directly from source. Note that the current up-to-date version may differ:

tar zxf glite-security-voms-1.6.16_src.tar.gz
cd glite-security-voms-1.6.16

./configure  --with-globus-prefix=$GLOBUS_LOCATION --with-globus-flavor=gcc32dbg
make install

In some cases the two steps make and make install fail with a 'docbook2man not found' error, but as long as the compile step was successful and the libraries got installed into $GLITE_LOCATION/lib, these errors are not a problem.

Finally, installing MyProxy with VOMS support. Note that the location of the VOMS libraries, as created in the previous step, needs to be a) added to LD_LIBRARY_PATH and b) used for the --with-voms option of the configure step.


cd ../myproxy-4.1
./configure --with-flavor=gcc32dbg --with-voms=/opt/glite
make install

After successful installation, checking the version of myproxy-server should display the VOMS support:

myproxy-server -V
'myproxy-server version MYPROXYv2 (v4.1 10 Sep 2007 PAM VOMS OCSP)'

For configuration of MyProxy, follow these configuration steps.
