The grid-mapfile-add-entry program verifies that the LOCAL-NAME is a valid user name on the system on which it was run, and that the mapping between DISTINGUISHED-NAME and LOCAL-NAME does not already exist in the gridmap file.
By default, grid-mapfile-add-entry will modify the gridmap file named by the GRIDMAP environment variable if present, or the file /etc/grid-security/grid-mapfile if not. This can be changed by the use of the -mapfile or -f command-line options.
If the gridmap file does not exist, grid-mapfile-add-entry will create it. If it already exists, grid-mapfile-add-entry will save the current contents of the file to a new file with the string .old appended to the file name.
The full set of command-line options to grid-mapfile-add-entry are:
-mapfile MAPFILE, -f MAPFILE
Add a mapping between the current user's certificate to the current user id to a gridmap file in $HOME/.gridmap:
% grid-mapfile-add-entry -f $HOME/.gridmap -dn "`grid-cert-info -subject`" -ln "`id -un`" Modifying /home/juser/.gridmap ... /home/juser/.gridmap does not exist... Attempting to create /home/juser/.gridmap New entry: "/DC=org/DC=example/DC=grid/CN=Joe User" juser (1) entry added
Add a mapping between the a distinguished name and multiple local names:
% grid-mapfile-add-entry -dn "/DC=org/DC=example/DC=grid/CN=Joe User" juser" local1 local2 Modifying /home/juser/.gridmap ... /home/juser/.gridmap does not exist... Attempting to create /home/juser/.gridmap New entry: "/DC=org/DC=example/DC=grid/CN=Joe User" local1,local2 (1) entry added
