2 Operational issues

2.1 Updates from DMSU

EMI-3/SL6 voms-proxy-info ignores X509_USER_PROXY

see details in GGUS #94878

it ignores the X509_USER_PROXY environmental variable the "voms-proxy-info" command provided in EMI-3 by voms-client3 rpm, and the following error is returned:

# export X509_USER_PROXY=/home/caifti/x509up_u3812
# echo $X509_USER_PROXY
/home/caifti/x509up_u3812
# voms-proxy-info -all
Proxy not found: /tmp/x509up_u500 (No such file or directory)

It works only specifying directly the proxy file:

# voms-proxy-info -file x509up_u3812
subject : /C=IT/O=INFN/OU=Personal Certificate/L=Padova/CN=Cristina Aiftimiei/CN=proxy
issuer : /C=IT/O=INFN/OU=Personal Certificate/L=Padova/CN=Cristina Aiftimiei
identity : /C=IT/O=INFN/OU=Personal Certificate/L=Padova/CN=Cristina Aiftimiei
type : full legacy globus proxy
strength : 1024
path : /home/caifti/x509up_u3812
timeleft : 02:20:30
key usage : Digital Signature, Key Encipherment, Data Encipherment

The fix will be released by the end of June; in the meantime as workaround it is possible either downgrading to the previous version voms-client-2 present in the EMI-3 repo:

# rpm -e --nodeps voms-clients3
# yum install voms-clients

or using the option "--file".
