Upgrading dCache 1.7 to dCache 1.8

Greig Cowan

The procedure for upgrading is basically the same as for any other dCache upgrade. Just upgrade the rpms from the dCache website (not sure if there is a CCRC-specific repository yet) and then run the install.sh script (either manually or via YAIM). A subsequent step requires you to migrate to the new version of the SpaceManager schema BEFORE starting the SRM:

If you then want to turn on space management and set up the spaces, you need to run through some additional steps.

(unfortunately, some of this documentation needs updating)



Mattias Wadenstein We also recommend the new metadata repository on the pools, our experience with that has been good at NDGF. Especially pool startup times have been greatly improved.
