grid.physics.ox.ac.uk • Initial installations (on grid and pplinuxdev) used globus 1.1.3 installed using the globus method. (Aug 2000 & Oct 2000) • Later reinstalled from RPM’s 1.1.3-5 (July 2001) and1.1.3-6 with UK host certificate (Nov 2001) • grid machine modified to be front end for LHCb Monte Carlo; OpenAFS, Java, OpenPBS, Openssh installed(Nov 2001) GridPP 3rd Collaboration Meeting

Identical systems at Glasgow,Liverpool, UCL and RAL. GridPP 3rd Collaboration Meeting
TB1 - Learning Curve • First attempt using kickstart method. Crashed with anaconda errors. • Proved to myself that I could do an NFS install from a copy of the RH62 on the NFS server. • Created a kickstart file, used that successfully from the NFS server. • Read on TB-support mail list that kickstart method no longer supported. • Decide to try manual method. • Pulled all CE rpms to my NFS server. Tried simple rpm -i *.rpm which failed • Will use the LCFG method. GridPP 3rd Collaboration Meeting
