Successful build of Globus 3.9.5 on Debian 3.0 -- RyanFraser - 04 Mar 2005

23 Feb

I have joined the SRB-Chat@sdsc.edu mailing list
  • The SRB-Chat Central, is the informal SRB user/developer technical discussion list.
So i have posted a question and am now waiting for a response on "HOWTO" setup a federated SRB.

No information could be found on via Google as seen here

The notes present from SRB on federated catalogs are more of why you want to do it not how. Also the README.zones file is not quite what we are after.

Update on Data Portal Installation

apacsrv2 (internal) has had the following installed:
  • debian stable
  • java-1.4.2r06
  • ant-1.6.2
  • tomcat-5.5.4
  • MyProxy Server-1.14
  • CLRC Dataportal v3.6

Current Status - the above has all been installed and configured, however certificates can be generated and added to the myproxy server on the machine however they will not do the same through a web browser - this is where we are currently at. After discovering that some parts of the CLRC package were missing and through much converstation with the CLRC group, there are still some problems that exist with it. Once I've compiled a list of what I believe are the reasons along with various log files, I will post them here! Thanks

4th of January 2005 Appointment of Ryan Fraser as a SE on the APAC Grid Project

-- RyanFraser - 13 Jan 2005

This project journal is for the benefit of sponsors and other interested parties to the Grid Technology for Geosciences (APAC) project. The project is being carried out as part of the SEE Grid Community as there are many components, particularly the WFS implementation work, that will benefit other members of SEE Grid outside of the project stakeholders.
