Line: 18 to 18

The software installation closely follows the instructions of the developers; if you want to understand the procedure, please refer to the package installation guides. The manageTier3SW, ATLASLocalRootBase and configuration packages are checked out from svn and the code is available for view. Since the installation procedures of the individual package developers are followed, it can mean that there will be cron jobs running at your site. This is true for gLite where cron jobs update certificates on a regular basis.

  manageTier3SW / ATLASLocalRootBase is also installed on cvmfs; if you have a uniform 64-bit OS environment and have cvmfs, you can access it from there and avoid doing a local installation.

Note that

  • Only the non-privileged atlasadmin account's directory and the $ATLAS_LOCAL_ROOT_BASE directory will be modified by this package.
  • You can install this on a nfs exported file system to share with desktops at your site.

  • If you have a mix of 32 and 64 bit machines, you will need to have one admin account on each type of platform to manage the software to run the updateManageTier3SW.sh script.
  • Although this installation has only been tested on Scientific Linux 5 and 6, there is an option to make it work on other platforms; for example, use the option for pacman as shown here: updateManageTier3SW.sh --pacmanOptions="-pretend-platform SLC-6".
