Daily Lab / POC Activities


  • Created a draft version of the Virtual Data Toolkit install document

Note: The Trusted authority procedures need to be modified. We may need to manually extract the trusted authority certificates because the VDT installation does not contain $GLOBUS_LOCATION/sbin/gpt-build. This method was used in the previously successful test of VDT.
The files below will have to be extracted from the Certificate Authority file:

  • Configured the Globus Container Service on lab 1002.
bubba@gump:/etc/grid-security> counter-client -s
Got notification with value: 3
Counter has value: 3
Got notification with value: 13

  • Configured RFT Service service on lab 1002
  • Contacted Ashley from CaBig
He mentioned the issue they are experiencing
is due to hard-coded absolute paths within the software. Instead of using variables, the software has defined absolute paths which causes it to have difficulty locating files if they are not install in a specific location. Ashley said he will try to modify the software to use variables instead of absolute paths.

The Mysql database was also reinstalled during the troubleshooting process.
