Email notifications

You may tailor the notifications you get by going to:
Examples: DTEAM CERN Test VO

If you have email filters to put messages in folders, this is, most probably the only "Subject" that will require action from you as VO Admins:

Subject: Member has requested the addition of a new certificate - approval required

Actions when VO member's certificate changes

VOMRS host certificate DN change

Such a change make synchronisation with VOMS fail, because, in order to allow VOMRS to synchronise with VOMS, we added a global acl entry which grants administrator rigths to the host certificate of VOMRs (

So, in this case, you have to modify the ACL entry in order to replace the VOMRS host DN (and maybe its CA) with the new one. To do that, there are several ways :

  • Use VOMS-Admin : 'Administer the VO' -> 'Global ACL', and modify the corresponding entry for all VOs.
  • Or, if you can't access this page, but have the DB password, you can use the Perl script '' which is attached to this page. (See at the bottom)

How can one identify the master node

It is possible to identify the master node by logging in each node, and runnning the following command : netstat -i

The master is the node with the eth0:0 interface.
