Certification Report for patch 3086

  • Certifier: Dennis van Dok
  • SA3 Partner: FOM/Nikhef

General Background

The patch includes some minor fixes for glite-yaim-condor-utils. It only contained fixes for issues that concerned packaging, coding, or configuration changes. None of the standing issues regarding the actual functioning of Condor as a batch system, which led to the rejection of previous patch #2593, were addressed.

For the certification of this patch, like earlier patches related to Condor-as-a-batch-system, I've used a set-up with the following nodes at the Nikhef testbed:

node name function OS Software
hals.nikhef.nl CE (LCG-CE and CREAM) CentOS4 gLite 3.1, condor submitter
condormanager.testbed central condor manager CentOS4  
wn1.testbed WN CentOS4 gLite 3.1, condor executor
wn2.testbed WN CentOS4 gLite 3.1, condor executor

The condormanager node is not a grid node at all. The WN nodes are plain condor executors, but they have the gLite middleware WN installation.

Other than installing the stock condor 7.0.4 RPM from http://www.cs.wisc.edu/condor/, there were no manual steps required.

I use

as user management is done through LDAP. Where necessary, I've created local accounts for edguser, glite, tomcat.

General Tests

Only very basic tests were done to ensure the basic functioning of the system: by doing a globus-jobs-run from a UI it was observed that the job was indeed submitted correctly to Condor.

Specific Bugs

bug 40771: fix certified

This bug was found in development; visual inspection of the YAIM scripts revealed no trace of the reported problem so I set it to fixed.

bug 43976: fix not certified

This bug is a build/integration issue and cannot be reproduced on a local installation. Inspection of the ETICS configuration revealed that the bug was not addressed, but as it doesn't show up in the scripts or the RPM this bug should not be attached to a patch.

bug 44835: fix certified

Visual inspection after running YAIM showed that the suggested changes were implemented.

bug 44845: fix certified

The fix was observed by visual inspection. Actually the use of 'service' is a Red-Hat specific idiom and should be replaced by /etc/init.d/.

bug 44851: not fixed

The fix did not work for me, because the local condor configuration was changed by YAIM. I attached a regression test script to the bug.

bug 44875: fix certified

I checked that the suggested change to blah.config were implemented by this fix.

bug 51251: fix certified

There were three issues named in this bug; all of them were fixed, as checked by visual inspection.
