You need to be able to connect to lxvoadm, and for that purpose need to join the egoup LxVoAdm-lhcb

Software Installation

Connection to "shared" account on host "cvmfs-lhcb"

All installation of software is done on host "cvmfs-lhcb", under the account called "shared".

First connect to cvmfs-lhcb via lxvoadm:

ssh yourusername@lxvoadm
ssh cvmfs-lhcb

Then check that nobody else is connected to install software:

$ pgrep -fl -u shared
$ sudo -i -u shared

Software installation

  • Upload your changes using the scripts from the ${HOME}/bin directory:

 <Project> <version>

  • One you have done all the installs, you have to update the global catalog (needs to be done just once at the end, to publish everything that you have installed)

Note that the various install_software and cvmfs-update-client commands can be chained by separating them with ;
