!! To share your Blacklight data with XSEDE grid users

1. Run set_acls.sh script (located in ~grimshaw/set_acls.sh) allowing the user that runs GenesisII container access to your data
-> ex. bash ~grimshaw/set_acls.sh vana /usr/users/2/grimshaw rx
->The above command gives user 'vana' permissions to read user 'grimshaw''s home directory on blacklight. vana is the user running GenesisII GFFS container on blacklight. When user shares data, it it important to give atleast read access to all the directories upto (and including) the directory to be shared.

-> ex. bash ~grimshaw/set_acls.sh -R vana /usr/users/2/grimshaw/shared-dir rwx
->The above command give user 'vana' permissions to read/write/execute recursively on user 'grimshaw''s shared-dir on blacklight

2. Install xsede grid client on your desktop/laptop. If you have already installed the client, skip to Step3.

3. On your grid client, login to xsede grid using your xsede credentials
-> ex. grid xsedeLogin --username=<xsede-portal-id>

4. Run grid export create command to share your blacklight data on grid
-> ex. grid export --create /resources/xsede.org/giu2.psc.xsede.org/containers/giu2-gffs local:/usr/users/2/grimshaw/shared-dir /home/xsede.org/grimshaw/blacklight-shared-dir
-> This command creates a export in grid namespace, /home/xsede.org/grimshaw/blacklight-shared-dir.

5. To share your export with other xsede users, give appropriate permissions to access the shared directory
-> ex. grid chmod /home/xsede.org/grimshaw/blacklight-shared-dir +rwx /users/xsede.org/vana
-> Here, xsede grid user 'grimshaw' shared /home/xsede.org/grimshaw/blacklight-shared-dir with xsede grid user 'vana'. Now xsede user 'vana' will be able to directly read/write/execute files in user 'grimshaw''s blacklight home directory /usr/users/2/grimshaw/shared-dir .

Use your XSEDE User Portal (XUP) username/password to authenticate with the GFFS GIU servers and the XSEDE grid. Here's a command line example on the GIU2:
