How I made GSI stuff work for me on Ubuntu 12.04 so I can run Crab on my laptop

  • install globus-proxy-utils via synaptic
  • Install CVMFS
    • followed online documentation
    • pus: CVMFS_HTTP_PROXY='DIRECT' (from David A.)
  • mount
    • /cvmfs/
    • /cvmfs/
  • in my .bashrc
export X509_CERT_DIR=/cvmfs/
export X509_VOMSES=/cvmfs/
export X509_VOMS_DIR=/cvmfs/
export X509_USER_PROXY=/tmp/x509up_u`id -u`

  • now can create a CMSSW release
cd /home/belforte/STEFANO/WORK/CRAB/CMSSW/
cmsrel CMSSW_7_0_2
cd CMSSW_7_0_2

  • but can't do scram b, so I have to copy the directory from lxplus in order to run customized cmsRun

  • as root, added a symlink:
mkdir -p /etc/pki/tls/certs/
cd /etc/pki/tls/certs/
ln -s /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt ./ca-bundle.crt

  • installed locally CRAB_2_10_6 from tarball

  • finally to setup the crab environment
source /cvmfs/ 
#source /cvmfs/ 
cd /home/belforte/STEFANO/WORK/CRAB/CMSSW/CMSSW_7_0_2

source /home/belforte/STEFANO/WORK/CRAB/CRAB_2_10_7_pre1/ 

  • now crab -create works

  • now gsissh
sudo dpkg -i globus-repository-5.2-stable-precise_0.0.3_all.deb
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gsi-openssh-clients

  • and now also crab -submit and crab -status work


  • no myproxy-* yet, need to use dont_check_proxy=1 in crab.cfg
