 +Pay close attention to the attributes passed in as an argument to the file creation. OpenFlags.NEW ensures that a new file is opened only if it does not already exist. AccessMode.OR makes the file world readable. This is important if the file exists in an area which can be accessed via an alternative method to xrootd. In the example above, the file is written in the disk server that is also accessible from cxin01/02 machines as /​data/​antonio. This example writes a file named "​cath"​ at /​coepp/​atlas/​cloud/​antonio/​cath in the CoEPP xrootd namespace, which is equivalent to /​data/​antonio/​cath in cxin01. However the file although written in user antonio'​s directory "​antonio"​ will not be readable unless the AccessMode is set to world readable.
