vomses - The VOMS server contact table
This manual page describes the format of vomses
files contain contact information for VOMS servers and are typically organized
in the /etc/vomses
directory. A vomses
file is a simple text
file which contains one or more lines formatted as follows:
"alias" "hostname" "port" "server DN"
: an alias that can be used for this VOMS server (this is typically
identical to the vo_name)
: the hostname where the VOMS server is running
: the name of the VO served by the VOMS server
: the port where the VOMS server is listening for incoming requests
: the certificate subject of the VOMS server
System wide VOMSES configuration is maintained in the /etc/vomses
directory. If /etc/vomses
is a directory, all the files contained in
such directory are parsed looking for VOMS contact information.
A user can define its custom vomses
configuration in the
file or directory, which will be parsed in the same way
as just described.
The following is an example of valid vomes file for the cms
"cms" "lcg-voms.cern.ch" "15002" "/DC=ch/DC=cern/OU=computers/CN=lcg-voms.cern.ch" "cms"
"cms" "voms.cern.ch" "15002" "/DC=ch/DC=cern/OU=computers/CN=voms.cern.ch" "cms"
