Register the DOEGrid Certificate

Before using your DOEGrid Certificate on OLCF systems you must register your certificate with the OLCF. Once your DOEGrid Certificate has been extracted to $HOME/.globus/usercert.pem and $HOME/.globus/userkey.pem run the following:
module load globus
You will receive an email once your certificate has been successfully registered.

Example of Transferring Data Using DOEGrid Certificate Authentication

When using DOEGrid Authentication, you must first generate a proxy certificate. Your DOEGrid Certificate must be registered for this to work. Run the command
myproxy-init -n
to generate a new certificate and then run
to log in. NOTE: Enter your PASSCODE at the Enter MyProxy pass phrase: prompt. Once you have generated the certificate, you can transfer files with globus-url-copy. For example, if you are connected to an OLCF system and want to transfer file1 in your OLCF home area to file2 on a remote system, use:
globus-url-copy -tcp-bs 12M -bs 12M -p 4 gsi$HOME/file1 gsiftp:///remote.sys//tmp/shared/$USER/file2
