  GLOBUS_LOCATION=/usr
  GW_LOCATION=/usr
  export GLOBUS_LOCATION GW_LOCATION
 fi
done
  • Some privileges are required to be set in the /etc/sudoers file. Please add the following lines.
Defaults:gwadmin !requiretty
# User alias specification (GridWay)
Runas_Alias GWUSERS = %gwusers
Defaults>GWUSERS env_keep="GW_LOCATION"
#GridWay entries
gwadmin ALL=(GWUSERS) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/grid-proxy-info *

The source RPM package gridway-core enables you to build the binary RPM.
