I tried xrdcp from the head together with a redirector.
The setup is simple: one redirector and one data server and
I try to copy a local file to an xrootd data server.
Unfortunately, xrdcp failed so far claiming that no data server
I have a question regarding the steps within xrdcp. Looking
through the logs it looks like that xrdcp first stats the file
and directory the files should go to and then if the dirs don't
exist it tries to create them. However all these steps fail because
the redirector doesn't return a data server.
As far as I understand a redirector returns a valid data server
if it receives a request to write a file, and therefore writing to
xrootd should follow the steps below. Is this true and is this
implemented in xrdcp ?
1) open/write the file to xrootd (the redirector should return a valid
2) if 1) fails do the stat and mkdir on the data server obtained in step
3) repeat step 1).
