Back to CERN AFS UI LCG Production Services

This page gives the instructions on how to update the CA certificates on the CERN AFS UI. As the certificates are kept in a separate directory from the UI itself, this will result in the update of the CA certificates both for the production and pre-production AFS UI.

Get them from the repository

mkdir /tmp/ca_update
cd /tmp/ca_update
wget -r -A rpm -nd -N

Make a back up copy of the old certificates directory

cd /afs/
mv  certificates_old  certificates_really_old
cp -r certificates certificates_old

Remove the certificates_save directory when you have finished.

rm -rf certificates_really_old

Unpack them locally and move them to AFS

  > cd /tmp/ca_update
  > for n in *.rpm; do rpm2cpio $n > $n.cpio; done
  > for n in *.cpio; do echo $n >> ca.log; cpio -id --verbose --no-absolute-filenames < $n 2>&1 | tee -a ca.log; done
  > cd etc/grid-security
  > tar cpf - . | (cd /afs/ ; tar xpf - )

edit the VERSION file /afs/ and copy the header from the CA release html page.

Syncronize the RO and RW AFS areas.
