Prerequisities

Two things usually need to be checked (se also sysadmin guide for the complete list):
  • Command hostname should return a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN). So check /etc/hosts
  • Check that the fs support the extended attribute and the ACL. Example:
[~]# vi /etc/fstab
  ...
  /dev/hda3     /storage ext3 defaults,acl,user_xattr 1 2
  ...

Testing Tip&Tricks

--novoms testsuite section

To use the --novoms parameter of the testsuite you need to modify before the _ /etc/storm/backend-server/namespace.xml_ file on the BE: remove the vo-name entry from the application rule: testers.eu-emi.eu_no_voms-rule
