Finalising New VOs on DPM

In the course of trying to debug some proxy problems for Hannah Cumming from Total, I discovered that new VOs were not properly enabled on our DPM.

A bit more investigation revealed another gridmap file which is used for the DPM and the LFC, /opt/lcg/etc/lcgdm-gridmap. It is also to be necessary to run the YAIM config_mkgridmap on DPM nodes. I have amended the wiki instructions appropriately.

I wasted quite a lot of time on this yesterday, because I was worried that there was some issue with pool account names longer that 8 characters. I'm very glad this turns out not to be the case as it would have been a real pain to redo the new VOs with short pool account names.

A very strange side effect is that I seem to have broken lcg-cr for me - and only when done on svr017. This is the error I get:

  • I have compared my environment with Andrew's and there's no meaningful difference - yet he can lcg-cr fine from svr017.
  • It works when I do the lcg-cr from ppeui.
  • rfio, globus-url-copy and srmcp all work perfectly (for both gridpp and dteam VOs).
  • I have tried using different streams in lcg-cr but that makes no difference at all.

I'm relegating this to the curiosity pile...
