[user@client ~]$ globusrun -a -r ce.opensciencegrid.org GRAM Authentication test successful
globus-url-copycommand can be used for that purpose. To verify that GridFTP is working correctly we will
[user@client ~]$ dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/ce.opensciencegrid.org.test.0 bs=1k count=1024 1024+0 records in 1024+0 records out 1048576 bytes (1.0 MB) copied, 0.005332 seconds, 197 MB/sNext let's transfer the file to the grid resource:
[user@client ~]$ globus-url-copy file:///tmp/ce.opensciencegrid.org.test.0 gsiftp://ce.opensciencegrid.org/~/ce.opensciencegrid.org.test.0 [user@client ~]$ echo $? 0To copy the file back to your resource use:
[user@client ~]$ globus-url-copy gsiftp://ce.opensciencegrid.org/~/ce.opensciencegrid.org.test.0 file:///tmp/ce.opensciencegrid.org.test.1 [user@client ~]$ echo $? 0Finally let's compare the original with the copy received back from the remote resource:

fileprotocol in the URI is used for files on a local file system. In this case no authentication is performed with the local resource before the file is read or written. Replacing

globus-job-runcommand to execute the
idcommand on the remote resource using the default fork Job Manager:
[user@client ~]$ globus-job-run ce.opensciencegrid.org /usr/bin/id uid=506(ligo) gid=506(ligo) groups=506(ligo)Upon success
/usr/bin/idreturns information about the user account which has been used to execute the program itself on the grid resource. This is the account that your Distinguished Name is mapped to. Unlike the Mapping Test this test also verifies that the account exists and that the job manager was able to run the command on your behalf on the compute element.
forkwill be used to fork your program directly on the compute element. As a general rule of thumb you should avoid to use fork and to execute programs on the compute element unless that is your intention. A not complete list of job managers includes
sge. Depending on the setup of the grid resource more than one job manager may be supported. Just like in the previous example we can use
globus-job-runto verify that the
forkjob manager is available and used for the execution:
[user@client ~]$ globus-job-run ce.opensciencegrid.org/jobmanager-fork /usr/bin/id uid=506(ligo) gid=506(ligo) groups=506(ligo)Notice how we append
/jobmanager-forkto the grid resource to explicitly request it. This can be used to detect if a certain job managers such as
[user@client ~]$ globus-job-run ce.opensciencegrid.org/jobmanager-condor /bin/hostname dom118Because the job is scheduled to be executed through HTCondor this command will likely require more time to complete. Here we used the
/bin/hostnamecommand to return the hostname of the worker node executing the job. To specify a job manager that is not supported by the grid resource creates a convenient way to find out what job managers are supported by the resource from the comfort of the command line:
[user@client ~]$ globus-job-run ce.opensciencegrid.org/jobmanager-pbs /bin/hostname GRAM Job submission failed because the gatekeeper failed to find the requested service (error code 93) [user@client ~]$ echo $? 93

globus-job-runinvocations. In particular, it requires that more client network ports be open. Condor-G will listen for incoming connections on the client coming from the CE (so, the Condor-G client acts like a server to some extent). If either client or the remote site has a firewall blocking these ports, Condor-G will fail but
globus-job-runwill succeed. Firewall issues may be difficult to track down. The three possible places where you might run into a firewall are:
