VO related operations on AFS UI

Adding a new VO with yaim

Note: this currently is not possible, as each VO normally has more than one RB, and different per VO, which currently is not supported by YAIM.

Adding a new VO without yaim

  • Edit the site-info.def file and add the new VO parameters as a reminder for future AFS UI releases.

  • Add (if not present) the certificate of the relevant VOMS server to the directory $INSTALL_ROOT/etc/grid-security/vomsdir
    • Format of the file name is voms.server.name.extension, where the extension can be the serial number of the certificate or the date the certificate was issued (format YYYY-MM-DD). Either can be found in the output of this command:
         openssl x509 -noout -text -in The-new-host-cert
            
    • fix the ownership of the host cert:
         afs_admin s_o root:root $INSTALL_ROOT/etc/grid-security/vomsdir/The-new-host-cert
            

  • Add a line for the new VO in the file $INSTALL_ROOT/glite/etc/vomses to associate the VO to its VOMS server.
  • Add a file for the new VO in the directory $INSTALL_ROOT/edg/etc/vomses to associate the VO to its VOMS server.

  • Add a directory $INSTALL_ROOT/edg/etc/<VO-NAME>
    • Create and edit the file edg_wl_ui.conf

  • Add a directory $INSTALL_ROOT/glite/etc/<VO-NAME>
    • Create and edit the file glite_wms.conf
    • Create and edit the file glite_wmsui.conf

  • Set the variable VO_<VO-NAME>_DEFAULT_SE in the
    $INSTALL_ROOT/etc/env.d/lcgenv.(c)sh
    files

Checks to see if all went well

  • There should be a file containing the certificate for the VOMS server under
     $INSTALL_ROOT/etc/grid-security/vomsdir 

  • There should be a directory $INSTALL_ROOT/edg/etc/<VO-NAME> containing the RB configuration file
    • edg_wl_ui.conf

  • There should be a directory $INSTALL_ROOT/glite/etc/<VO-NAME> containing the WMS configuration files
    • glite_wms.conf
    • glite_wmsui.conf

  • There should be a line corresponding to the new VO in the file
     $INSTALL_ROOT/glite/etc/vomses 
    associating the VO to its VOMS server

Reconfiguring an existing VO

To reconfigure parameters for a VO you must edit the following files directly

    $INSTALL_ROOT/edg/etc/<VO-NAME>/edg_wl_ui.conf
    $INSTALL_ROOT/glite/etc/<VO-NAME>/glite_wms.conf
    $INSTALL_ROOT/glite/etc/<VO-NAME>/glite_wmsui.conf
Note: Remember to change the corresponding variables inside the site-info.def file!
