Derek mentioned that the Globus Connect Server creates its own host certificate and was wondering if replacing that with a host certificate issued from an XSEDE trusted CA would still work or cause any problems.

JP said they will check and get back to us. UTK-NICS has a server in this situation and can be used to test procedures for this.

 

Write XSEDE focused document that describes how to setup a GCS install to use XSEDE host certificates (and thus be usable w/ globus-url-copy).

https://docs.globus.org/globus-connect-server-installation-guide/#globus_connect_server_conf_options

has most of the info, but doc should be more of a howto than a reference.
