The VO auger was setup for members of the Pierre Auger collaboration. To become a member of auger VO, you must be a member of the collaboration, obtain a personal certificate from your national certification authority and fill a registration form.
Common usage rules for virtual organizations setup in the scope of the EGEE project are valid for VO auger together with the computing usage rules of the Pierre Auger collaboration.
To be able to access registration form, you need a valid certificate loaded in your browser. When you fill all fields and press the first button below the form, an email is sent to the address specified in the form. You must visit the web page given in the email for a confirmation. In a new form, fill your desired username and password for an account on the global user interface ui1.egee.cesnet.cz. We expect that this UI will be used only for first tests and that users will install their own UI. When you fill the second form, email is sent to the VO manager. You can expect an approval within several days (we have to check that you are eligible). A confirmation email is sent when the request is approved or rejected.
Approval of a new member
Procedure of the approval of a new auger member is the following: registration form generates an entry in the database and a mail to the VO manager. VO manager contacts Auger's computer systems responsible and gets an agreement for an approval of a new member. All members of the collaboration are supposed to already have a computing account in the CCIN2P3 computing centre, this is a necessary condition for all VO auger members.This procedure may evolve in a more automatic approach.
Computing resources provided for auger VO will be either dedicated resources of groups taking part in the collaboration or "opportunistic" resources of other organizations offered on the voluntary basis.
Resources for the VO infrastructure (registration server, voms and ldap server) are provided by CESNET (within the EGEE project) and by Institute of Physics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. The first computing resources were 2 EGEE sites in the Czech Republic: praguelcg2 and prague_cesnet_lcg2. In September 2007, we had 9 CEs supporting the VO auger.
All questions can be send to auger at SPAMPROTECTcesnet.cz (remove the part SPAMPROTECT). There is a RT system behind this address for a proper tracking of all requests. Users can also submit tickets via GGUS portal.
How to add auger to the list of supported VO's on the site.
System administrators can use their favourite configuration tool and use values for auger obtained from the VO registration card at CIC portal.Here is an example of our procedure using yaim:
- add auger to yaim.conf as a new VO with these parameters:
- add auger to the list of VO's in VOS="..." and list of queues in QUEUES="..." Values above may differ on different sites. You may use a generic queue instead of a dedicated one.
- add generic accounts augerXXX to the config_users
- run configure_node yaim-all.def YOUR_ELEMENT, where YOUR_ELEMENT may be your type of CE, SE, UI, WN, ...

VO auger for setup by CESNET and Institute of Physics of the Academy of Sciencies of the Czech Republic (FZU) after an approval of a collaboration board in spring 2006. FZU is a member of the Pierre Auger collaboration, CESNET provides its resources in the scope of the EGEE III project.
