  - Site BDII: we observed an issue not strictly related to YAIM configuration but dealing with information "hardcoded" in the site BDII (the normal hack you have to do in order to publish castor srms. As the intelligence of setting mdo-vo-name- was moved down from the site bdii to the gip itself, the ldif files we used before to hardcode info about  the srms were not correct anymore we had to change our files as shown in the diff below: This information should be passed to CERN-PROD

   - regular submission on behalf of 'dteam' to PPS/PROD Certified/Uncertified sites in CERN ROC 
   - documentation available in https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/bin/view/LCG/CERNROC

CERN_PPS (Section and C5 Report on 12-Jul-07)

CERN GRID PRE-PRODUCTION SITE (CERN_PPS) 
========================================
* Upgrade of the site to gLite 3.0.2 PPS-UPDATE 35 
   (New YAIM) in progress
    - CEs, DPMs, LFC, lcg-RB, BDII, FTS done
    - yaim bugs: #25667, #27984.
* AFS UI released (Update 02)
   - first user immediately complained for change of location of 
     setenv script (although advertised in the broadcast)
   - need for the CERN-PROD (ROC) to advertise the change more noisily
     before going to production. Also a longer transition period, with symlinks 
     available in parallel would help 
* Job submission was failing for sgm users. We needed to add more pool accounts for 
   sgm users on CE and Torque-server.
   - This solution is correct from the site point of view.
   - The reason why the problem happened, though, is because the 
      'lcgadmin' role in dteam is unreasonably crowded (GGUS#22814)
   - The role needs to be cleaned up (action for OCC and ROCs)

CERN_PPS (C5 Report on 21-Jun-07)

CERN GRID PRE-PRODUCTION SITE (CERN_PPS) 
========================================
   * Upgrade of the site to gLite 3.0.2 PPS-UPDATE 32 completed
   * Upgrade to gLite 3.1.0 PPS-U01 (UI)
      During the installation we noticed that 

      1) The directory $INSTALL_ROOT/etc was removed and its 
          content put in $INSTALL_ROOT/external/etc . 
          As a major consequence for the user
          the location of the environment script has changed
      2) The name of the environment script was changed from grid_env.(c)sh 
          to grid-env.(c)sh, 
      
      Both these changes are likely, in our opinion, to create surprise and discomfort in 
      the user community.
Therefore we opened two critical bugs to track these issues. - https://savannah.cern.ch/bugs/index.php?27361 - https://savannah.cern.ch/bugs/index.php?27362

However, there are two accounts used by FTS 'lcg_egee_pps_fts' and 'lcg_egee_pps_fts_w' - so, the password for "writer" account did not expire and remained the same (site-info.def changed accordingly, service reconfigured (2 accounts, 2 passwords)).

CERN GRID PRE-PRODUCTION SITE (CERN_PPS) 
========================================

   * Many failures were observed for SAM replica management. They were due to a bad configuration of the PPS SAM client happened after its upgrade. Now all the CEs are "green"

   * Atlas started looking into SLC4 WNs. Interactive access to one of the node was granted to SImone Campana and Rod Walker at this purpose

   * We are suffering a lot because of two bugs in the LB service, which force us to restart the service from time to time (this week it happened twice). A brand new LB diagnostic was installed in PPS with Update26, so we offered to WMS developer to access our sever to debug. No reply came yet. 

   * FTS server was fixed and put back to production. It is ready for testing FTS2.0 (currently in Certification)
