Volunteers running ATLAS native and/or Theory native are kindly asked to update their local CVMFS configuration. Please see the following post for the details.

CVMFS is a network filesystem developed at CERN to distribute huge amounts of data.
It is included in each VM if you run vbox tasks.
If you run ATLAS native or Theory native you must install a local CVMFS client which will connect your machine to CERN's data repositories.


Detailed infos about CVMFS can be found here:
https://cvmfs.readthedocs.io/en/stable/
https://cernvm.cern.ch/portal/filesystem/quickstart


The ATLAS and Theory sections of the message board provide additional infos, especially how to setup the required software on a volunteer's host:

Be aware that ATLAS also requires Singularity.
