LCG_Util and GFAL developer notes

Test and development environment

To run test, you must set up some environment variables. I list the minimum, with examples that can be used immediately at CERN, in the IT-GT-DMS section:

export LCG_GFAL_VO=dteam

To get the up-to-date values, see the node status in the certification testbed page (TestBedCERN section).

In addition, create a similar configuration in your development environment (example from my environment, based on practice...):

# Edit this, pointing to your etics workspace


export PATH=$PATH:$WS_ROOT/stage/bin:$WS_ROOT/
export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:$WS_ROOT/stage/lib/python2.5/site-packages/

It is also advised that you execute the following script from your workspace root:
