Release notes (gLite 3.2) and the generic installation instructions can also be found in:

Specific notes for this update:

  • The rgma client is no longer configured in gLite 3.2 (SL5).

  • gridftp has been replaced with uberftp.

  • For the glite-UI, these are the installation steps you need to execute:

Under /etc/yum.repos.d, create PPS-glite-UI.repo:

name=PPS UI

name=PPS UI updates

name=PPS UI external

Install and configure the UI by running:

yum groupinstall PPS-glite-UI
/opt/glite/yaim/bin/yaim -c -s site-info.def -n UI

  • Known issue when upgrading the WN:

yum groupupdate glite-WN fails with:

package vdt_globus_essentials-VDT1.10.1x86_64_rhap_5-1.x86_64 (which is newer than vdt_globus_essentials-VDT1.10.1x86_rhap_5-3.i386) is already installed. 

This is due to a problem in the versioning schema of the VDT rpms. The workaround is to uninstall the vdt_globus_essentials rpms manually:

rpm -e --nodeps vdt_globus_essentials-VDT1.10.1x86_rhap_5-1 vdt_globus_essentials-VDT1.10.1x86_64_rhap_5-1

Then do yum groupupdate glite-WN.

Tarballs for UI

The installation instructions can be found at:

  • Known Issue in the tarball (documented also in the YAIM guide - Known Issues):
    • Bug #50872: YAIM detects the OS where we are running a configuration by checking /etc/issue.net/. If YAIM detects we are in an SL5 machine, the rgma client is not configured. We have detected that in some SL5 machines this file is empty and therefore YAIM fails to detect the platform. In this case, YAIM doesn't know we are in SL5 and it tries to configure the rgma client giving errors. In this case, please remove config_rgma_client from the function list.
