Before Starting

Service installation

# wget http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm
# rpm -ivh epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm

# wget http://emisoft.web.cern.ch/emisoft/dist/EMI/1/sl5/x86_64/base/emi-release-1.0.0-1.sl5.noarch.rpm
# rpm -ivh emi-release-1.0.0-1.sl5.noarch.rpm

# yum install emi-bdii-site emi-bdii-top 


Service Configuration

  • Using YAIM for service configuration (skeleton below):
# /opt/glite/yaim/bin/yaim -c -s siteinfo.def -n BDII_site -n BDII_top

  • reconfigure endpoints for top-level (a required step for Testbed case, most likely not needed for official production sites of EGI, WLCG, ...)
    • STOP bdii ( # /etc/init.d/bdii stop ) ASAP(!) after YAIM finishes its job (otherwise you have production Grid in infosystem - you may have to clean manually caches in /var/lib/bdii/gip/ )
    • modify /etc/glite/glite-info-update-endpoints.conf disabling EGI and OSG information sources, enable manual instead, setting properly references to top-url files, eg:
[configuration]
EGI  = False
OSG = False
manual = True
manual_file = /etc/bdii/gip/top-urls.conf
output_file = /opt/glite/etc/gip/top-urls.conf
cache_dir = /var/cache/glite/glite-info-update-endpoints
    • specify endpoints for top-level BDII in top-urls.conf eg:
EMITB-CERN ldap://cvitbrc02.cern.ch:2170/mds-vo-name=cert-tbrc-cern,o=grid

  • reconfigure endpoints for site-level BDII - edit /etc/bdii/gip/site-urls.conf file providing resource bdii endpoints, eg.:
EMIRCBDII  ldap://cvitbrc02.cern.ch:2170/mds-vo-name=resource,o=grid

  • (re-)start bdii - and try to query (you may need to wait a moment - it may have to gather / refresh its data)

YAIM config (site-info.def) skeleton:

BDII_REGIONS="EMIRCBDII"

Service Testing

Basic test:

  • check running daemons (see links and service reference card for details)

Other commands with simple operations tests on a BDII are documented in the tutorial information
