Deployment notes

  • There are no changes in the Grid Monitor deployment.

  • The ARIS is deployed by installing the nordugrid-arc-aris package. If you are upgrading from an earlier release, the update should be automatic from any of the previous packages (nordugrid-arc-infosys-ldap, nordugrid-arc-nox-ldap-infosys).

  • The EGIIS is deployed by installing the nordugrid-arc-egiis package. If you are updating from an earlier release, the update from nordugrid-arc-nox-giis should be automatic. A meta package nordugrid-arc-information-index is also provided to easy deployment.

  • In order to keep publishing the same information as before in ARIS, no configuration changes are needed.

  • New configuration options were introduced for enabling publishing new information in ARIS:

  • In order to enable or disable different information schemas in the output, the following variables can be set in the [infosys] section of the arc.conf (defaults as indicated below):
    • infosys_nordugrid="enable"
    • infosys_glue12="disable"
    • infosys_glue2_ldap="disable"

  • In order to publish site bdii information a new [infosys/site/] section should be added to the arc.conf configuration file, containing a unique_id option identifying the site and a url option giving the address to the resource bdii.

  • There are no configuration changes for EGIIS
