RRZE will soon become a GRID-RA within the DFN-PKI …
Once all organisatorial requirements are fullfiled at RRZE, the “personal identification” for user/server certificates according to the EUGridPMA standard can then be obtained at the HPC-Group of RRZE for
O=GridGermany/ OU=Universitaet Erlangen-Nuernberg.
Further details will be announced once all details have been negogiated with DFN – hopefully not later than by the end of March.
GRID-RA@RRZE in beta test: After many organizatorial efforts, the GRID-RA@RRZE reached its beta test. See http://www.rrze.uni-erlangen.de/dienste/arbeiten-rechnen/hpc/grid/ for details about the proceedure for obtaining a certificat. If there are any questions, just contact me.
We are still working on the upgrade of our grid gateway! GT2.4 is no longer available. The installation of GT4 is not yet finished. That effectively means, RRZE currently does not have a working grid gateway right now. Please be patient! GT4 will probably not be available before end of March.
… but as emails from other (larger German) sites show, we are not the onlyones who do not have a running GT4 installation yet …
Availability of GT4 at RRZE will depend on the support and detailed getting-started instructions (in particular integration of GT4 and PBS) from LRZ who is responsible for the Globus Toolkit within D-Grid.
