Mounting EOS on CentOS7

Dear experts,

I followed the instructions here to mount EOS on the group server at our institute but I am unable to access them. Listing /eos/user and /eos/project says ls: cannot access /eos/user: Permission denied

I was unable to install locmap, so I followed the instructions for unmanaged machines.

eos vid ls gives the following error
error: MGM root://localhost not online/reachable

eos whoami gives the same error
error: MGM root://localhost not online/reachable
What am I missing?
Can you please help me fix this?

Cheers,
Tamasi
