The CERN Voms Pilot Service

The CERN voms pilot service is available on

The aim of the pilot service is to wide scale field test the VOMS service deployment before such a deployment moves to the production service on and

The host certificate for is installed at all sites that have the production certificates and and as such any resources that trust the production VOMS service should also trust the pilot service.

There is no pilot service for voms-admin or vomrs since the certification process can cover their usage well. Only the voms core service responsible for serving voms-proxy-init requests is available.

All VOs including the LHC VOs, dteam and ops are availble on the voms pilot service.

Current Status on 13th March 2009

Since no pending VOMS updates at the moment, the pilot is essentially idle.

Current Status on 20th October 2008

The voms pilot service is currently installed with the voms from PATCH:2390 , voms proxies are available from it. This patch is definitely now a candidate to be certified.

Create a private configuration file
"dteam" "" "15004" "/DC=ch/DC=cern/OU=computers/" "dteam"

Do the same for which ever VO you wish to use. The port number, in this case 15004, is the same as for the production service so copy the port number from your existing voms configuration.

To then use the voms-pilot service run a

$ voms-proxy-init --voms dteam -vomses


To check which hardware the voms service is on then please see VomsNodes.
