Preparation Steps

  • Check defragmentation of Database - Request made to DBAs.
  • Prepare CDB templates and validate. Same as pilot plus addition of yaim 4.


  • Set hosts to SMS status maintenance. Done
  • Switch channels to inactive, wait to drain. Done

  • Stop scripts running on fts102 and lxb2091
  • Disable history pack on prod and tiertwo.
    • exec fts_stats.stop_hourly_job;
    • exec fts_history.stop_job;
    • exec fts_statecount.stop_job.
  • Verify no queries are running.
    • select * from user_jobs;
  • Stop the web services.
  • Stop the agent nodes.
  • Ask DBAs to backup tables and check fragmentation.
  • Upgrade the schema.
  • Commit CDB files.
  • Update RPMS.
  • Run yaim.
    • For some unknown reason /opt/glite/yaim/bin//yaim -i -s /etc/lcg-quattor-site-info.def -m glite-FTA2 works but the more correct. ncm-ncd --configure yaim fails. This is not a problem and can be easily worked around.
    • In fact fixed by replacing tail_pid=$? rather than tail_pid=$!. In fact this yaim is not released and is fixed in what will be release.
  • Start web servers by rebooting.
    • Try a few commands.
  • Start agent nodes by rebooting.
    • Check they are running.
  • Start monitoring jobs fts102
  • Enable jobs
    • exec fts_history.submit_job;
    • exec fts_stats.submit_job;
    • exec fts_statecount.submit_job;
  • Enable production status for nodes in SMS.
  • Have lunch.
