A two node testbed.
  • is the redirector
  • is the data server

Getting started

Create xrootd account

  • On the cluster management machine, useradd xrootd
  • Then the files /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow, /etc/gshadow, and /etc/group must be copied to both the redirector and data server machines.

Checking firewalls

On both redirector and data server, eg:
[root@itb2 opt]# /etc/init.d/iptables status
Firewall is stopped.


  • # cd /opt
    # wget
    # tar --no-same-owner -xzvf pacman-3.28.tar.gz
    # ln -s pacman-3.28 pacman
    # cd pacman
    # source 
  • On itb2, there is already pacman 3.29 which I shall use.
