From XCI Test report:

Globus-client install instructions need to updated to replace the grid-proxy-init command (which requires a certificate on the local machine) with the myproxy-logon command.

The testing section follows configuration with a couple lines about firewall setup and updating in between. It instructs you to perform these three commands to test your install without giving any other information.

$ grid-proxy-init

$ globus-url-copy gsiftp://<your_gridftp_server>/etc/group file:///tmp/`whoami`.$$

$ grid-proxy-destroy


If follow these instructions exactly without the result is:

$ grid-proxy-init -debug

Error: Couldn't find valid credentials to generate a proxy.

grid_proxy_init.c:534: globus_sysconfig: Error with certificate filename: The user cert could not be found in:

1) env. var. X509_USER_CERT

2) $HOME/.globus/usercert.pem

3) $HOME/.globus/usercred.p12
