By default BDII obtains fresh information by querying GIP. To
allow BDII to obtain the GLUE information, you must tell GIP
where to find this information. This is achieved by either
copying the above script into the directory
cp /opt/d-cache/libexec/infoProvider/info-based-infoProvider.sh \ /opt/glite/etc/gip/provider/
or by symbolically linking the script in there:
ln -s /opt/d-cache/libexec/infoProvider/info-based-infoProvider.sh /opt/glite/etc/gip/provider/
If GIP (available in the
RPM package) and BDII are installed, and the BDII daemons
are running, then you will see the information appear in BDII
after a short delay; by default, this is 60 seconds.
You can verify the information is present with the query:

These objects have been omitted for brevity.
It’s tempting to use
localhost as the hostname in the
ldapsearch command above. Unfortunately,
for some versions of BDII this will not work. Recent
versions of BDII bind to the ethernet device (e.g.,
associated with the loopback device (lo),
so the LDAP server part of BDII will not hear the
connection request and the query will fail.
You should be able to compare this output with the output from running the info-provider script manually. If the info-provider output includes LDAP objects that are absent in the BDII output then there is a problem somewhere. The BDII log file will likely explain why this object was not accepted; for example, due to a badly formatted attribute.
Unfortunately, the order of the LDAP objects and the order of the attributes within the object (other than the distinguished name, DN, which must be first) are not required to be in any particular order. Because of this one cannot use the diff command to look for changes.
