Getting and Installing GRIDSEED

1.  How to get Gridseed

GRIDSEED virtual machines are available here for download.
Beware: The size of the compressed images could be quite large and it could take some time !

The following tables contains links to the VM available right now for downloading. The first table refers to basic central grid services: the other tables refer to one CREAM grid-sites (CE,SE and a one WN). An ARC CE is also available for download, this VM works with CE-2 as batch server. The UI (user interface) is in central services table even if it isn't a central service.

  • All the VMs have the same root password set to : gridseed
  • On the UI a standard account has been set-up : username=tutor password=gridseed

All the machines are working on 10.10.0.0 subnet (numbering schema preassigned).

If not otherwise specified all the VMs has been installed starting from a standard and minimal SL47 virtual machine.
