How To Set Up a Domain Service Registry

These instructions explain how to setup a Domain Service Registry (DSR) for a site. As a prerequisite, any SL6 host, either real of virtual is required with a valid host certificate. Note that Mongo needs 2GB of space in the file system.

Installing the DSR

Install the EMI relese package.

yum install yum-priorities yum-protectbase 
rpm -Uvh http://emisoft.web.cern.ch/emisoft/dist/EMI/2/sl6/x86_64/base/emi-release-2.0.0-1.sl6.noarch.rpm

Install the EMI Registry package.

wget https://github.com/downloads/eu-emi/emiregistry/emi-emir-1.2.0-0.sl6.noarch.rpm
yum localinstall emi-emir-1.2.0-0.sl6.noarch.rpm

Install the trust anchors.

wget http://repository.egi.eu/sw/production/cas/1/current/repo-files/EGI-trustanchors.repo -O /etc/yum.repos.d/EGI-trustanchors.repo
yum install lcg-CA 

Configure the DSR

Edit the file /etc/emi/emir/emir.config and set the address for the DSR.

emir.address=https://dsr.example.com:9126

Set the registry parent attribute to be the following.

emir.parentAddress=https://zam052v04.zam.kfa-juelich.de:54321

Enable the anonymous port for querying.

emir.address.anonymousPort=9127

Configure the trust store

emir.security.truststore.type=directory
emir.security.truststore.directoryEncoding=PEM
emir.security.truststore.directoryLocations.main=/etc/grid-security/certificates/*.pem

Configure host certificate location

emir.security.credential.path=/etc/grid-security/hostcert.pem
emir.security.credential.format=PEM
emir.security.credential.keyPath=/etc/grid-security/hostkey.pem

Set the mongo DB name

emir.mongodb.dbName=emiregistrysecure

Edit the DN of the host certificate to the file /etc/emi/emir/emir.acl

CN=dsr.example.com,OU=computers,DC=example,DC=com :: serviceowner

Start the services

service mongod start
service emi-emir start

Test the DSR

Check that the DSR is running

http://dsr.example.com:9127/ping

Install the service publisher

Install the emir service publisher.

rpm -Uvh https://github.com/downloads/eu-emi/emir-serp/emir-serp-1.2.1-0.el6.noarch.rpm

Install the service translator.

rpm -Uvh http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org//packages/ginfo/0.2.4/1.el6/noarch/ginfo-0.2.4-1.el6.noarch.rpm 

Configure the service publisher

Edit the file /etc/emi/emir-serp/emir-serp.ini and set the url for yor DSR.

url = https://dsr.example.com:9126

Set the credential file locations

cert = /etc/grid-security/hostcert.pem
key = /etc/grid-security/hostkey.pem
cadir = /etc/grid-security/certificates

Uncomment advancedServiceWithWatchDir section and the set the json_dir_location.

[serviceFromWatchDir]
json_dir_location = /var/cache/emir/services

Create the json directory.

mkdir -p /var/cache/emir/services

Create a hourly cron job to run the following command, where bdii.example.com is the host name of a site BDII.

ginfo --host bdii.example.com --emi > /var/cache/emir/services/example

Run the above command manually to avoid waiting for the cron job to run.

Start the service

service emir-serp start

Test the service publisher

Check the expected services are published

http://dsr.example.com:9127/services

Troubleshooting

General Tips

Check the following log files.

/var/log/emi/emir/emir.log
/var/log/emi/emir-serp/emir-serp.log
