Diagnosis

The client could not authenticate the service.

Solution

  1. Is the CA for the service present on the client machine?
  2. Is it still valid? Check with: openssl x509 -noout -text -in the_CA_file
  3. Check $X509_CERT_DIR (instead of /etc/grid-security/certificates) if defined.
  4. Is the CA perhaps overridden by a file in your ~/.globus directory?
  5. Are the certificate revocation lists (CRLs) up to date?
  6. See also 7_authentication_failed
  7. Is the time correct on the client and the server? If the client's time is ahead of the server's time, the service might consider a fresh proxy not yet valid.
