IGI (based on EMI) Installation and Configuration


OS installation

Install SL5 using SL5.X repository (CERN mirror) or one of the supported OS (RHEL5 clones).

You may find information on official repositories at Repositories for APT and YUM
If you want to set up a local installation server please refer to Mrepo Quick Guide

NOTE: Please check if NTP , cron and logrotate are installed, otherwise install them!

Check the FQDN hostname

Ensure that the hostnames of your machines are correctly set. Run the command:

 hostname -f

It should print the fully qualified domain name (e.g. prod-ce.mydomain.it). Correct your network configuration if it prints only the hostname without the domain. If you are installing WN on private network the command must return the external FQDN for the CE and the SE (e.g. prod-ce.mydomain.it) and the internal FQDN for the WNs (e.g. node001.myintdomain).

Repository Settings

To have more details to the repository have a look to the this link Repository Specifications

If not present by default on your SL5/x86_64 nodes, you should enable the EPEL repository (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL)

EPEL has an 'epel-release' package that includes gpg keys for package signing and repository information. Installing this package, http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm, should allow you to use normal tools such as yum to install packages and their dependencies. By default the stable EPEL repo is enabled. Example of epel.repo file:



If present remember to disable the dag.repo if it is enabled.

You need to have enabled only the above repositories (Operating System, EPEL, Certification Authority, EMI):

Common repositories *x86_64*

BDII Site installation and Configuration

Before starting the installation procedure remember to clean all yum cache and headers:

yum clean all

CAa installation:

Install CAs on ALL profiles:

yum install ca-policy-egi-core

Service installation

Install all packages use for BDII site software

yum install emi-bdii-site 

Service Configuration

To proper configure the BDII site profile you need this file:

- site-info.def - user.conf - group.conf

/opt/glite/yaim/bin/yaim -c -s <site-info.def> -n BDII_site
