AFS UI on lxplus

Tricks needed to make a UI installation in user space work on lxplus at CERN

Prevent problems in voms-proxy-init

In lxplus installations the file ${GLITE_LOCATION}/etc/vomses cannot be created with the correct ownership (root). Therefore, if the user is not using a local ${HOME}/.glite/vomses file, the voms-proxy-init command would fail because of the wrong privileges.

What we use to do in PPS is a hack in the setenv script: if the file in the user's directory does not exist we copy the central file, namely:

[aretico@lxplus068 ~] tail -6 /afs/

# Trick from Andrea's script for VOMS
if [ ! -f $HOME/.glite/vomses ] ; then
mkdir -p $HOME/.glite
cp $GLITE_LOCATION/etc/vomses $HOME/.glite/

[aretico@lxplus068 ~] tail -6 /afs/
# Trick from Andrea's script for VOMS
if ( ! -f $HOME/.glite/vomses ) then
mkdir -p $HOME/.glite
cp $GLITE_LOCATION/etc/vomses $HOME/.glite/
