grid-mapfile-check-consistency — Add an entry to a grid map file

Synopsis

grid-mapfile-check-consistency [ -h | -help | -usage | -version | -versions ]

grid-mapfile-check-consistency [ -mapfile MAPFILE | -f MAPFILE ]

Description

The grid-mapfile-check-consistency program performs basic checks for validity of a gridmap file. These checks include checks for existence, duplication of entries, and valid local user names. If the gridmap file is valid, grid-mapfile-check-consistency exits with a zero exit code, otherwise it exits with a non-zero exit code. In either case, it displays information about its progress as it parses and validates the gridmap file.

By default, grid-mapfile-check-consistency will check the gridmap file named by the GRIDMAP environment variable if present. If that variable is not set, it will check the file $HOME/.gridmap for non-root users if present. If that doesn’t exist or grid-mapfile-check-consistency is run as root, it will then check /etc/grid-security/grid-mapfile. This can be changed by the use of the -mapfile or -f command-line options.

The full set of command-line options to grid-mapfile-check-consistency are:
