Installation of a Worker Node

From Gridkaschool

For installing a worker node these repositories have to be placed in /etc/yum.repos.d/


You can find the repository files at

Get them with

 rm -f /etc/yum.repos.d/dag.repo
 wget -P /etc/yum.repos.d/
 wget -P /etc/yum.repos.d/
 wget -P /etc/yum.repos.d/ 
 wget -P /etc/yum.repos.d/

Now you can install the packages:

yum groupinstall glite-WN


yum install glite-TORQUE_client lcg-CA

If asked to accept importing the gpg keys of the repository answer with "y":

Please note that yum uses the groupinstall option to install the gLite worker node software. To list the installed/ available groups in your system you can run yum grouplist:

# yum grouplist
Loaded plugins: kernel-module

Installed Groups:
   Graphical Internet
   Legacy Network Server
   Mail Server

That's all for installation. You can go on with the configuration.
