Machines were installed following the instructions in the VO-box HowTo. On top of this installations some specific configurations (according with experiment requirements) have been made. Also, the UI configuration has been done using the YAIM config.

The SGM users can login to each of the VOBoxes

 $ grid-proxy-init
 $ gsissh -p 1975 lhcbsgm@lcgvo0597.gridpp.rl.ac.uk 


The VO-box is operational.

The VO Boxes host the PhEDEx and FroNTier services.


LHCb required a service certificate, a request was made the UK CA for a new service type of lhcbvobox.

This service certificate/key pair has been available on lcgvo0425.
