Problems with VOMS in glite 3.1 updates 27-32

The VOMS server packages in glite 3.1 updates 27-32 have several issues that prevent proper functionality. It is recommended to downgrade to glite-VOMS_oracle-3.1.8-0 or glite-VOMS_mysql-3.1.8-0. Note that this version suffers from logging problems, see https://savannah.cern.ch/bugs/?31476

Update: this bug was closed on Dec 23 2008. Glite update 35 http://glite.web.cern.ch/glite/packages/R3.1/updates.asp#3.1_Update_35 released on 14 November 2008 introduced a new VOMS server with several fixes need to test this version.

URI issue

The value set for '--uri' does not contain the ':vomsd_port' suffix, which is important for voms-proxy-info.

Documentation needs to be more clear about that, see https://savannah.cern.ch/bugs/?39713 and https://savannah.cern.ch/bugs/?39628

New documentation has been made available in update 35 and has been also linked in glite main page. Also a patch to perform this setting during initial deployment has been developed but as yet ( January 2009) is not in production

Update: With the latest VOMS version this seems to have been fixed.

Internal server error when VO admin has been added via cli with his certificate and has more than one e-mail addresses in it

Encountered this on several occasions, but still looking for a way to accurately reproduce this.


Update: was reproduced and a patch has been created but as yet not member of a glite update. Will be part of next VOMS version

Fix cerifidied in June 2009.

Default e-mail cofirmation request times outs after 120 seconds instead of 24 hours



Patch has been created and in production since VOMS 2.0.16 was released.

Duplicated admin entries causing upgrade to VOMS 2 database failure


As of May 2009 there have been no more reports about this, and glite 3.0 has been obsoleted.

Read-only VOMS mode does not work is not documented and causes confusion


Still not referenced in the accompanying documentation (May 2009), but no new more supports requests recieved.

Mysql server is not a depdendency for glite-VOMS_mysql


As of January 2009 this does not seem it will change.

Order of fqan no longer predictable


By update 35 this should have been fixed.

voms-admin CLI argument parsing not failure resilient


By update 35 this should have been fixed

Under certain conditions VOMS-Admin GUI doesn't show full DN


Still in progress as of May 2009, as some complications have been identified in November 2008.
