Downloads Temporarily Halted!

CMIP5 dataset downloads are temporarily halted as the wget scripts are failing to retrieve ESGF certificates used to verify the identity of the host data nodes. These certificates expire and must be refreshed periodically, which requires that I manually provide the login credentials for my openID. However, the server hosting my openID ( is down, and consequently the certificates cannot be retrieved.

Hopefully, this a temporary issue. I will continue to check the status of the openID provider periodically.


UPDATE (10/29 08:35): Other data nodes are still up (e.g. DKRZ), but the MyProxyLogon is redirected to (which is down) from each data node.

UPDATE (10/30 17:45): The error causing the wget scripts to fail is shown below.
