Deploying WOS resource on iRODS 4.0
• Download DDN WOS resource RPM
– http://irods.org/download/
– Or, build from source on GitHub
• Install WOS driver on iRODS server & iCAT server
– Failure to install on iCAT server will result in errors (!!!)
• Configure WOS resource on iRODS server
– “wos_host” refers to single WOS endpoint
– Be careful of length parameter length and use of semicolon
$ iadmin mkresc wosResc compound
$ iadmin mkresc cacheResc 'unix file system' eiserver1:/Vault
$ iadmin mkresc archiveResc wos eiserver1:/fakePath \
'wos_host=http://wos1.example.com;wos_policy=Replicate’
$ iadmin addchildtoresc wosResc cacheResc cache
$ iadmin addchildtoresc wosResc archiveResc archive

SSL Certification for iRODS Servers
• Use SSL “Subject Alternative Names”
– Allows multiple hostnames/IPs embedded in single SSL certificate
– Commonly used for { www | ftp | mail }.example.com
• Multisite iRODS scenario
– Can’t assume common hostname naming scheme
– Certainly will use different IP addresses
• Use site specific common hostname aliases
– “irods-local” & “wos-local” (either in /etc/hosts or site DNS)
– Use host aliases in iRODS driver configuration
• Re-create WOS resource using aliases
$ iadmin mkresc cacheResc 'unix file system' irods-local:/Vault
$ iadmin mkresc archiveResc wos irods-local:/fakePath \
'wos_host=http://wos-local.example.com;wos_policy=Replicate’
