User setup

Sites setup

Here is Operations Portal LSST page

VOMS config

VOMSES="'lsst voms1.fnal.gov 15003 /DC=org/DC=opensciencegrid/O=Open Science Grid/OU=Services/CN=voms1.fnal.gov lsst'
        'lsst voms2.fnal.gov 15003 /DC=org/DC=opensciencegrid/O=Open Science Grid/OU=Services/CN=voms2.fnal.gov lsst' "

  • 10 normal accounts mapped to the generic role
  • 10 pilot accounts mapped to the pilot role


There isn't yet a precise requirement on the size but LSST users will use few TB across different sites currently using 8TB across 4 sites.

Software area

VO_LSST_SW_DIR = /cvmfs/lsst.opensciencegrid.org/uk

Requested software

  • Packages

LSST will use xrootd and gridfp. It could use only gfal_utils if all sites had the latest version but not everyone has. xrootd_utils is not installed on SL6 WNs and should be installed. In order to avoid any problem it is recommended to install both latest verions.

  • CVMFS repositories

LSST will use two repositories one in the US at FNAL and one in France at IN2P3. The repositories will both replicated at RAL and have been (ATM will be added) to the EGI configuration which is reccomended. There is no YUM repository

yum localinstall https://ecsft.cern.ch/dist/cvmfs/cvmfs-config-egi/cvmfs-config-egi-2.0-1.el6.noarch.rpm

It will override the default, but should be the only needed configuration.
