Client Installation

Installation

The OSG Client contains the tools that are used for job submission and file transfer. The Worker Node Client is insufficient in this regard. However, you can combine these in the same NFS directory (in this example /apps/osg). You can do it separately, it's just a matter of taste and what you find convenient.

cd /apps/osg
pacman -get http://software.grid.iu.edu/osg-1.2:client
source setup.sh
vdt-post-install


You may want to coordinate the fetch-crl and vdt-update-certs activities between your CE and Client/Worker Node installation directories. See the remarks in the Compute Element and Batch Scheduler Interface if you want to do this. Otherwise,

vdt-ca-manage setupca --location local --url osg
vdt-control --enable fetch-crl --vdt-update-certs


on one system to keep the CA certs and CRLs current in the Worker Node directory.
