NOTE: Before you can send your messages to the Accounting server, your sending host must be configured, with its X509 DN, in GOCDB as either a 'gLite-APEL' service for grid accounting data or an '' service for cloud accounting data. If you are testing a host which is not yet registered in GOCDB, you must send your host certificate DN to the mailing list, e.g. output from running

openssl x509 -subject -noout -in hostcert.pem
