vtb-generic-63 slc4 WN Installing Now.
14th Dec 2008
Now review vtb-generic-62 as a Cluster Node.
  • Need to get software tags working.
  • This needs to work. lcg-tags --add --ce vtb-generic-62.cern.ch --vo dteam --tags VO-dteam-abc
  • We need the following packages.
    • vdt_globus_data_server, vdt_globus_essentials
    • edg-mkgridmap, edg-mkgridmap-conf
    • lcg-expiregridmapdir
    • glite-initscript-globus-gridftp
    • glite-security-lcas-lcmaps-gt4-interface, glite-security-lcas
    • The YAIM function config_gip_software_plugin should move from glite-yaim-lcg-ce to glite-yaim-cluster
  • Add the following YAIM functions to the glite-CLUSTER
    • config_sysconfig_globus
    • config_sysconfig_edg
    • config_crl
    • config_host_certs
    • config_users
    • config_mkgridmap
    • config_vomsmap
    • config_globus_gridftp
    • config_lcas_lcmaps_gt4
    • config_gip_software_plugin
    • config_gip_vo_tag
    • config_vomsdir
    • config_add_pool_env
  • Despite trying hard here I still can't get gridftp to authorise me. Will need some help. There is nothing fundamentally wrong or new, I just cannot get it right.
  • Moving onto publishing of the tags.
    • Classic style tags are located in /opt/edg/var/info/<VO>/. I suggest we put the new per SubCluster tags in /opt/glite/var/info/<SubCluster>/<VO>/.
    • Consequently the yaim function config_subcluster should be extended to create these directories. Do it by hand now.
      • mkdir -p /opt/glite/var/info/SteveSubCluster/dteam
      • mkdir -p /opt/glite/var/info/SteveSubCluster/ops
    • Install the old lcg-info-dynamic-software and check it works.
      • It works just fine but needs to be updated now BUG:45310 to support the new per SubCluster tags. This work is not pending on anything and could be deployed tomorrow.
  • Try and get Steve Burke's Cluster RTE publish thing working.
    • Install RPM. glite-info-provider-service and glite-info-provider-service
      • In fact we have to take the newer that production glite-info-provider-service-1.0.3-0.noarch.rpm which is in certification now to get the RTEpublish stuff.
      • To the glite-CLUSTER YAIM target we must add the new attached config_info_service_rtepublish.
      • Now looking at this there are a couple of changes that might make this better. Submitted to Steve Burke. BUG:45313.

18th Nov 2008
Now set up vtb-generic-62 as a Cluster Node.
  • Add a site BDII as well to the cluster node.
  • I don't want to install a whole CE will install only what I need. Of course this will be a node type meta package eventually.
    • glite-yaim-core
    • glite-yaim-cluster
    • glite-info-provider-generic
    • glite-info-provider-ldap (?)
    • glite-version
    • bdii
    • glue-schema
    • glite-info-templates
  • Not obvious what CLUSTER_STEVECLUSTER_CE_HOSTS is needed for but we will see.
  • Why now SITE_Name and not SITE_NAME?
  • A resource BDII needs to be running on a Cluster Node. i.e all the yaim functions for that need adding. i.e config_edgusers, config_bdii_only and config_gip_only.
17th Nov 2008
Carry on configuration of new cluster.
  • Check what the GlueCEHostingCluster should be set to in the GlueCE.
  • Role=NULL being stripped out even when set. Needed by WMS.
  • A little confused by CE_InfoApplicationDir I don't see why this is needed or is sensible on a GlueCE. Apparently some OSG thing.
12th Nov 2008
Carry on configuration of new cluster.
  • config_torque_submitter_ssh should run after config_torque_server since it calls pbsnodes and requires a running pbs_server.
11th Nov 2008
Reinstall on new hardware (vtb-generic-xx) using YAIMcluster_1.
  • CE_SMPSIZE needs some thought, in YAIM this is effectivly JOB_SLOTS, needs to fixed up with what ever we decide to do in the end. Also this really needs to be a per node value.
  • UniqueID Currently set by the user, need to think of a way of making them really unique (tbc).
  • White space error in one random function. config_apel_pbs
  • On the CE /opt/glite/yaim/bin/yaim -v -s /root/site-info.def -n lcg-CE -n TORQUE_utils -n TORQUE_server returned okay but with the "-c" flag it gave an error. ERROR: CE_InfoApplicationDir is not set
  • GlueCEInfoApplicationDir on a GlueCE makes little sense if I understand it and it does not appear to be in Glue 1.3 anyway. Checking.
26th May 2008
Reinstall lxb1914 and lxb2091, Update jpackage repositories, install java.
  • yum install glite-WN glite-TORQUE_client
  • yum install lcg-CE  glite-WN glite-TORQUE_client glite-Torque-utils glite-TORQUE_server
  • rpm --oldpackage --nodeps -Uvh glite-yaim-lcg-ce-1.0.0-1.noarch.rpm glite-yaim-core-5.0.0-1.noarch.rpm
  • /opt/glite/yaim/bin/yaim -v -s /root/site-info/site-info.def -n TORQUE_client -n TORQUE_server -n WN -n lcg-CE
Notes on Installation
  1. CE_SMPSIZE ... Need to think about putting nodes in subclusters in yaim via nodes.conf file.

14th Feb 2008
  • Add two new queues dteamc and opsc linked to two a new cluster and subcluster both called lxb2091.cern.ch-c.
  • Configure queues and existing queues to submit to sl4 or slc4 hosts.
  • qmgr -c 's n lxb1914.crn.ch properties += slc4'
  • qmgr -c 's q dteamc resources_default.neednodes=slc4'
  • Edit the two subclusters so that one is SL4 and one SLC4.. It is a lie but does not matter in the PPS.

14th Feb 2008
  • Added the two resources to the CERN_PPS BDII.
  • ldap://lxb1914.cern.ch:2170/mds-vo-name=resource,o=grid
  • ldap://lxb2091.cern.ch:2170/mds-vo-name=resource,o=grid

13th Feb 2008
  • Change the GlueCluster and GlueSubCluster name on lxb2091 to be something more sensible, i.e change it to lxb2091 over lxb1914.
    • Edit the following files to do this, also add the CERN_PPS site name while we are there.
    • /opt/glite/etc/gip/ldif/static-file-Cluster.ldif
  • Remove the GlueCluster and GlueSubCluster from lxb1914.
    • rm -f /opt/glite/etc/gip/ldif/static-file-Cluster.ldif
  • Change the GlueCluster and GlueSubCluster ids in the GlueCE objects on lxb1914 in:
    • /opt/glite/etc/gip/ldif/static-file-CE.ldif

21st Dec 2007
  • Install the required packages on lxb2091 to publish GlueCluster, GlueSubCluster.
  • yum install PPS-glite-TORQUE_utils
  • yum install lcg-info-dynamic-software
  • yum install glite-yaim-lcg-ce
  • Run selected functions from an =lcg-CE.
    • # /opt/glite/yaim/bin/yaim -r -s /root/siteinfo/siteinfo.def -n lcg-CE -f config_edgusers
    • # /opt/glite/yaim/bin/yaim -r -s /root/siteinfo/siteinfo.def -n lcg-CE -f config_gip_only
    • # /opt/glite/yaim/bin/yaim -r -s /root/siteinfo/siteinfo.def -n lcg-CE -f config_gip_software_plugin
    • # /opt/glite/yaim/bin/yaim -r -s /root/siteinfo/siteinfo.def -n lcg-CE -f config_gip_vo_tag
    • # /opt/glite/yaim/bin/yaim -r -s /root/siteinfo/siteinfo.def -n lcg-CE -f config_bdii_only
    • Don't run config_gip_ce. This does to much, this will need to be broken up for a real deployment.
  • cp the following files from lxb1914 to lxb2091 to configure them (normally created by config_gip_ce).
    • /opt/glite/etc/gip/ldif/static-file-Cluster.ldif

20th Dec 2007
  • Check the status, lxb1914 is correctly publishing GlueCE, GlueCluster and GlueSubCluster objects.
    • ldapsearch -x -H ldap://lxb1914:2170 -b 'Mds-vo-name=resource,o=Grid'
  • globus-job-run lxb1914.cern.ch/jobmanager-lcgpbs -q dteam is working.

14th Nov 2007 lxb1914
  • #  yum install PPS-glite-TORQUE_client PPS-glite-WN PPS-glite-TORQUE_server PPS-glite-TORQUE_utils PPS-lcg-CE
  • # /opt/glite/yaim/bin/yaim -c -s /root/siteinfo/siteinfo.def -n WN -n TORQUE_client -n TORQUE_server -n TORQUE_utils -n lcg-CE

26th Oct 2007 lxb2091
  • # /opt/glite/yaim/bin/yaim -c -s /root/siteinfo/siteinfo.def -n WN -n TORQUE_client
  • Configure YAIM's config_java to do nothing.
  • # yum install PPS-glite-BDII PPS-glite-WN PPS-glite-TORQUE_client.
  • This node will be batchworker and publish the Glue(Sub)Clusters.

22nd Oct 2007 lxb1914
  • # yum install PPS-glite-BDII PPS-glite-WN PPS-glite-TORQUE_client
  • # /opt/glite/yaim/bin/yaim -c -s /root/siteinfo/siteinfo.def -n WN -n TORQUE_client.

18th Oct 2007 lxb1914
  • Installed with SL4. Installed java, PPS-glite-BDII-3.1.0-1, torque and maui.
  • This will be a resource BDII for GlueCE as well as the pbs_server. For luck it is also a pbs_mom as well.
  • Really hoping the SL4 gatekeeper appears soon in the PPS.
