Installation with YUM¶
The Argus Authorization Service is a bundle of 3 services (the PAP, PDP and PEP
Server). Packages for the three services can be easily installed on a given
machine by installing the
argus-authz metapackage, as in the following
yum install argus-authz
Install the EGI IGTF Bundle¶
If not already present on your host, install the EGI IGTF trust anchors. More information available online: https://wiki.egi.eu/wiki/EGI_IGTF_Release
The Argus metapackage install the
fetch-crl cron job;
run it once, and verify that the cron job is enabled and started:
# run it immediately (it can take some time...) fetch-crl # enable the periodic fetch-crl cron job chkconfig fetch-crl-cron on service fetch-crl-cron start
For EL7 system, enable
fetch-crl cron job with:
systemctl start fetch-crl-cron systemctl enable fetch-crl-cron
Install the Argus Metapackage¶
argus-authz metapackage bundles the 3 Argus services: PAP, PDP and
argus-authz metapackage is the simplest way to install
the Argus Authorization Services (PAP, PDP and PEP Server) on your host.
Use YUM to install the Argus metapackage:
yum install argus-authz
At this point all 3 Argus services (PAP, PDP and PEP server) are installed on your host. You must now continue with the Argus service configuration with YAIM.
Update with YUM¶
Argus and its components are packages in the UMD repositories,
and therefore automatically updated if a new version is available and
yum update is executed. The updating process however is stopping the
Argus services (PAP, PEPd and PDP). To get Argus back to work after an
update it is recommended to restart the services.
Please make sure that your system does not use the automated yum updating service, since this may lead to a stopped Argus server in case of a unnoticed update.
Nagios Probes for Argus¶
A set of Nagios probes for Argus (EMI-2 and EMI-3) are available to monitor the Argus PAP, PDP and PEP Server:
