p.s. Next some more output is generated and the screen is cleared. Finally it will print a summary of the key it generated with instructions on how to get the key signed.
- Run the command (the command is already in the output above)
“cat /YOUR_HOME_DIRECTORY/.globus/usercert_request.pem | mail firstname.lastname@example.org”
- Wait for the mail response. You will receive a file named usercert.pem.
p.s. If the .forward file in your home directory is set up to forward email to your usual mailbox, you will receive the response from the grid certificate request there, otherwise you can use the mail command to check for mail there.
- Copy usercert.pem you received to YOU_HOME_DIRECTORY/.globus/
- Run “ln -s /etc/grid-security/certificates ~/.globus/”
- In ~/.globus folder should be similar to the following:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 dacai G-2959 31 Sep 16 10:59 certificates -> /etc/grid-security/certificates
-rw-r--r-- 1 dacai G-2959 3378 Sep 16 14:29 usercert.pem
-rw-r--r-- 1 dacai G-2959 1241 Sep 15 16:33 usercert_request.pem
-r-------- 1 dacai G-2959 963 Sep 15 16:33 userkey.pem
