The Globus configuration script allows the user to configure certain important aspects the the Globus software, in particular:
The script configure_globus.sh is located in $VDT_LOCATION/vdt/setup directory. If run without any options, the script will ask about configuring each of the items above. Alternatively, the user may only configure the items of interest, by specifying one or more of the following command line options to the script:
--gsisetup Grid Security (GSI)
--gatekeeper=y|nenable or disable Globus Gatekeeper daemon
--gridftp=y|nenable or disable Globus GridFTP daemon
--gris=y|nenable or disable GRIS
Because this script modifies important sytem files, root access is generally required to run it. The exception is the --gsi option which, in case of a non-root install, will only need to modify files under the VDT installation directory.
During the VDT install process, configure_globus.sh writes important messages to the VDT post-install README file ($VDT_LOCATION/post-install/README). It is a good idea to check it for messages about things that the script was not able to automatically configure, errors it encountered, etc.
