1) Install the GridWay Core: The binary DEB package gridway-core installs GridWay with a multi-user configuration.

1.1) Install DEB dependencies: libdb4.8.

1.2) Post-install configuration:

  • All of the GridWay users must be members of the gwusers UNIX group.
  • GridWay users must export the $GW_LOCATION environmental variable:
export GW_LOCATION=/usr
  • You can create a profile file for gwusers group, such as:
for i in `groups`; do
 if [ "$i" = 'gwusers' ]; then
  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 below 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 DEB package gridway-core enables you to build the binary DEB.

  • Build DEB dependencies: debhelper, gcc, and default-jdk.

2) Install the GridWay MADs

2a) GridWay MADs for GT5: The binary DEB package gridway-gt5 installs the GridWay MADs to interface with the Globus Toolkit 5 services, GRAM5 and GridFTP, as well as an static information MAD is provided.

2.1a) Install DEB dependencies: gridway-core, libglobus-gram-client-dev and libglobus-gass-copy-dev.

2.2a) Post-install configuration:

  • This DEB provides a basic configuration of the MADs through the file /usr/etc/gwd.conf (check the Configuration Guide).
  • You must configure the available hosts for your GridWay instance (see the example file /usr/etc/gram5_hosts.list).
  • GridWay users must export the $GLOBUS_LOCATION environmental variable:
export GLOBUS_LOCATION=/usr
  • Some privileges are required to be set in the /etc/sudoers file. Please add the following lines.
Defaults>GWUSERS env_keep="GW_LOCATION GLOBUS_LOCATION"
#GridWay entries (GT5 MAD)
gwadmin ALL=(GWUSERS) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/gw_em_mad_gram5 *
gwadmin ALL=(GWUSERS) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/gw_tm_mad_ftp *

The source DEB package gridway-gt5 enables you to build the binary DEB.

  • Build DEB dependencies: debhelper, gcc, libglobus-common-dev, libglobus-gram-client-dev, libglobus-ftp-client-dev, libglobus-gass-copy-dev and grid-packaging-tools.

2b) GridWay MADs for OGSA-BES endpoints: The binary DEB package gridway-bes installs the GridWay MAD to interface with OGSA-BES services, as well as an static information MAD and a dummy transfer MAD are provided.

2.1b) Install DEB dependencies: gridway-core, libxmlbeans-java, libaxis-java, libwsdl4j-java, libxml-security-java, libxalan2-java and default-jre.

  • Other dependencies (non DEB): gridsam-schema, OMII security utils and wss4j (check the default location in GW_em_mad_bes).

2.2b) Post-install configuration:

  • This DEB provides a basic configuration of the MADs through the file /usr/etc/gwd.conf (check the Configuration Guide). Set up your GridFTP server.
  • You must configure the available hosts for your GridWay instance (see the example file /usr/etc/BES_hosts.list).
  • GridWay users must export the $GLOBUS_LOCATION environmental variable:
export GLOBUS_LOCATION=/usr
  • Some privileges are required to be set in the /etc/sudoers file. Please add the following lines.
Defaults>GWUSERS env_keep="GW_LOCATION GLOBUS_LOCATION"
#GridWay entries (OGSA-BES MAD)
gwadmin ALL=(GWUSERS) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/GW_em_mad_bes *
gwadmin ALL=(GWUSERS) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/gw_tm_mad_dummy *
  • MyProxy is used for managing security credentials. Create a $HOME/.myproxy file, where the first line is the hostname of the MyProxy server, the second line is the username and the last line is the password.
  • Configure the client-config.wsdd and crypto.properties files in $GW_LOCATION/etc/.

The source DEB package gridway-BES enables you to build the binary DEB.

  • Build DEB dependencies: debhelper, libaxis-java, libxmlbeans-java, libxalan2-java and default-jdk.
  • Other dependencies (non DEB): gridsam-schema (check the default location in Makefile and gw_em_mad_bes.sh).
