Prerequisites / Requirements for Running CMSSW jobs and Grid Jobs from FNAL

Tutorial participants are advised to start early with the registration processes each step can take a few days to be processed.

GRID Certificate Verification

To guarantee successful participation, a valid GRID certificate is needed. Each user must successfully execute two commands on the cmsuaf/cmslpc cluster and verify the output before attending the tutorial. The steps above should ensure success, this is the final check.

  • Execute the generation of a GRID certificate proxy with:
    voms-proxy-init -voms cms
  • Check the validity of the generated proxy with the following command:
    voms-proxy-info -all
    which should produce output similar to:
    subject   : /DC=org/DC=doegrids/OU=People/CN=Your Name 123456/CN=proxy
    issuer    : /DC=org/DC=doegrids/OU=People/CN=Your Name 123456
    identity  : /DC=org/DC=doegrids/OU=People/CN=Your Name 123456
    type      : proxy
    strength  : 512 bits
    path      : /tmp/x509up_u12840
    timeleft  : 11:59:54
    VO        : cms
    subject   : /DC=org/DC=doegrids/OU=People/CN=Your Name 123456
    issuer    : /C=CH/O=CERN/OU=GRID/CN=host/
    attribute : /cms/Role=NULL/Capability=NULL
    attribute : /cms/uscms/Role=NULL/Capability=NULL
    timeleft  : 11:59:54
