WLCG-OSG-EGEE Ops' Minutes Mon 03 Aug 2009


Because of the imminent upgrade to SL4 of one fo the services (DPM) used to submit SAM tests sites still running on SL3 (no longer supported) would start failing the tests. This effect can already be seen from the SAM validation instance. All sites filing the tests in the validation instance should upgrade their WNs to the last version ASAP and ROCs are invited to monitor this process. The switch of the SAM DPM production is scheduled for the 10th of August (less than 2 weeks from now)

Grid Operator Hand Over on Duty

  c-COD Team

  • Report from cCOD:

The case of IN-DAE-VECC-EUINDIAGRID as in GGUS:49754 has to be discussed today at the weekly meeting.

  • Jason will take a look

SEE experienced severe problems with their local dashboard last week, but should again be back to normal.

ROD CERN seems to be very sloppy concerning their alarm handling.

  • Comment from CERN: I (SteveT) really could not work out how to raise a ticket on a problem, more generally a clash with a training course caused problems

gLite Release News

gLite 3.1 Update 52 introduced among others the new host certificates for the server voms.cern.ch

Steve: in reply to a point raised from the French ROC: The distribution of certificates for the voms server will be phased out with gLite 3.1 . gLite 3.2 uses a different method (.dsc file)
