In order to ensure response in case of problems, use the Global Grid User Support (GGUS) and/or your VO support rather than private e-mail contacts or internal mailing lists.


Becoming a Member of a VO

If a user holds a valid user certificate, membership in VOs can be requested via the appropriate VOMRS/VOMS servers.

Please do NOT request VO membership to the VO 'desy'. This is a VO for internal use only. Usually you want to register with the VO of the experiment you are working with, e.g. 'atlas', 'belle', 'cms', or 'ilc'. See:


Two conditions are mandatory for a valid membership of a user in a VO managed by VOMS:

1. The USER needs to sign the AUP regulary once per year.
   (Here the admins can NOT do anything.)

2. An ADMIN needs to extend the membership of a user once per year.
   (Here the user can NOT don anything.)

For information on the installation of VOs see also Installing DESY VOs in EMI.

To enable authorization for non-LHC VOs which are hosted at DESY, please install per VO:

  > cat /etc/grid-security/vomsdir/_vo_/grid-voms.desy.de.lsc


  > cat /etc/grid-security/vomsdir/ilc/grid-voms.desy.de.lsc

  > cat /etc/grid-security/vomsdir/ilc/voms.fnal.gov.lsc
/DC=org/DC=DOEGrids/OU=Certificate Authorities/CN=DOEGrids CA 1
The deprecated glite 3.1 (not glite 3.2 and EMI) still need the VOMS host certificate. See next section for downloads:
  > ls -l /etc/grid-security/vomsdir
