New version of Yaim Core

New site-info variables
  • UNPRIVILEGED_GRIDMAPFILE per VO: This variable was before defined per site and now it can be configured per VO.
  • USER_HOME_PREFIX per VO: This variable was before defined per site and now it can be configured per VO.
  • EDG_HOME_DIR, EDGINFO_HOME_DIR and BDII_HOME_DIR: The home directories of system accounts can be now be configured. The suggestion is to define them as /var/lib/user_name but YAIM has left the default under /home.
  • GRIDFTP_CONNECTIONS_MAX: It has been increased from 50 to 150.
  • Variables that were wrongly implemented in previous yaim releases are now fixed: CONFIG_GRIDMAPDIR and USER_HOME_PREFIX.
New functions
  • config_myproxy_libs: new function to be able to configure the new myproxy server and clients.
  • New SAGA adapters: There's a new function called config_glite_saga that configures the SAGA gLite adapters.
  • Some libraries have been added to LD_LIBRARY_PATH and to be able to configure lcg CE and cream CE in SL5.
  • grid environment cleaning mechanism to be able to install different WN tarball versions in the same machine.
  • YAIM doesn't fail when gLite version package is not installed. This is useful for non gLite software using YAIM.
  • siteinfo packaging is now fixed (-p option).
