The Globus Toolkit is properly configured open source software for setting up grid nodes across multiple heterogeneous platforms. The process of grid enabling a machine is a long one involving Globus Toolkit installation, certificate requests generation, signing certificate requests by CA (certificate authority), installation of signed certificates, configuring various grid services and some basic testing to ensure that the setup is correct. Generally, a grid deployment is done across a large number of distributed machines. In such cases, the process of grid enabling becomes tedious and time-consuming more so in a heterogeneous environment. This paper proposes a solution for grid infrastructure deployment across multiple heterogeneous distributed machines in parallel using SmartFrog (smart framework for object groups) technology. SmartFrog is a framework for configuring and automatically activating distributed applications. SmartFrog helps in abstracting the configuration for grid enabling process and its runtime environment automatically triggers installations across distributed machines. The initial results we achieved on experimental setups are encouraging
