Which Storage Element Should I Use?

The environment variable VO_<VO_NAME>_DEFAULT_SE should be set on all Grid UIs and on the worker nodes (although this does not seem to be the case for all VOs on all CEs). This storage element is used when executing lcg-cr without specifying an SE explicitly with the -d option. (See the manpage of lcg-cr(1) for details.)

There are several Storage Elements at DESY:

To learn which Storage Elements are available for your VO, use the command lcg-infosites --vo <VO_NAME> se. Note that this command has a verbosity switch (option -v LEVEL) which will actually decrease the amount of output.
