Patches for software in the VDT

When we build software for the VDT, we patch Globus and Apache.

Building Globus for VDT 2.0.0 and 2.0.0

To build Globus for VDT 2.0.0 and 2.0.0, we check out Globus 4.0 using the globus_4_0_8 tag then we apply the patches that follow. If you like, you can look at the source code after it has been patched.

For those who are interested, you can see the exact build script that we use to build VDT 1.8.1. This script is meant to be run in the Metronome build and test software, so it will NOT run out of the box for you. That said, you might still find it useful to understand how we do the build.

Patches for VDT 2.0.0

Name Description Diff Ticket
011__gss_assist_gridmap Enhancement by EDG/LCG: "gridmapdir" functions allow a pool of pre-created anonymous accounts to be mapped to real users (DNs) at run-time, without further intervention by a sysadmin. The functionality is disabled and does not affect any installations unless the environment variable GRIDMAPDIR points to a directory that has been initialized with the anonymous accounts (/etc/grid-security/gridmapdir). diff N/A
013__job_manager_acct Accounting log for job management diff Bugzilla 1538
014__gatekeeper_acct Log rotation & job accounting diff Bugzilla 1538
017__lsf_acct.diff Log rotation & job accounting diff

Bugzilla 4213
072__no-gram-reporter.diff Disable the GRAM reporter in the slapd.conf. It's not used normally, and including it causes MDS 2 failures. diff

099__gatekeeper_fork.diff Add configuration knob to gatekeeper to control where it forks before starting a jobmanager. This allows admins to use xinetd to limit the number of running jobmanagers. By default, Globus's behavior has not been changed, but will only change if the configuration is changed. diff
