Important : YAIM takes care of this migration automatilly.

To upgrade to the DPM version >= 1.4.1, you need to do two things :

  • run a migration script, so that multiple domains are supported,
  • upgrade the database schema, to add missing indexes


Multi Domain DPM

Do you need to do anything ?

As from DPM version >= ?, the DPM supports disk pools in different domains.

In LCG_2_7_0, even if the DPM server and the pool nodes are in the same domain, YOU MUST RUN THE MIGRATION SCRIPT !!!!!! ( After the installation of the new version of the software but before configuring it !)

There are several cases :

  • case 1 : you are setting up a DPM from scratch,
  • case 2 : you already have a DPM installed

For case 1, the standard installation is enough. See the DPM Administrators' Guide.

For case 2, you must run the updateDomainName script, that comes with the DPM-name-server RPM. The arguments are slightly different depending if the DPM database backend is MysQL or Oracle.

Requirements

To run the updateDomainName script, you need to install :

  • perl-DBD,
  • perl-DBI,

corresponding to the DPM database backend (MySQL or Oracle). (The rpms are: perl-DBD-mysql or perl-DBD-Oracle )

Note: if using Mysql >= 4.1, perl-DBD-mysql >= 2.9003 should be used.

At CERN, the useful RPMs are located in /afs/cern.ch/project/linux/cern/slc304/i386/SL/RPMS/ :

perl-Tk-804.027-1.i386.rpm
CERN-dummy-afs-provides-1-1.i386.rpm
perl-DBD-Oracle-1.15-3.cern.i386.rpm
perl-DBI-1.32-9.i386.rpm
perl-DBD-MySQL-2.1021-3.i386.rpm

For help about perl, go to http://www.cpan.org

Then, run the updateDomainName script : it will update the host and sfn fields in the Cns_file_replica table with the fully qualified host names of the disk servers. It will also update the server field in the dpm_fs table.

Mysql

You have to specify :

  • the domain name, for instance cern.ch
  • the database vendor, here MySQL
  • the Mysql server host name, for instance my_mysql_server
  • the DPNS and DPM database user, for instance dpm
  • the file containing the DPM database user's password, for instance dpm_password_file
  • the Mysql database name, for instance cns_db

$ cd /opt/lcg/share/DPM/multiple-domains/
$ ./updateDomainName --domain-name "cern.ch" --db-vendor MySQL --db my_mysql_server --user dpm --pwd-file /path/to/dpm_password_file --dpns-db cns_db --dpm-db dpm_db --verbose

The file containing the DPM user password should be readable only by you, and deleted afterwards.

Note : make sure the DPM user has access to the cns_db and dpm_db databases from the host you are running the script.

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON cns_db.* TO 'dpm'@my_host IDENTIFIED BY 'dpm_password' WITH GRANT OPTION;
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON dpm_db.* TO 'dpm'@my_host IDENTIFIED BY 'dpm_password' WITH GRANT OPTION;

Oracle

You have to specify :

  • the domain name, for instance cern.ch
  • the database vendor, here Oracle
  • the Oracle database SID, for instance LFC
  • the DPNS database user, for instance dpm
  • the file containing the DPM database user password, for instance dpm_password_file

Make sure that the following environment variables are set :

  • $ORACLE_HOME
  • $TNS_ADMIN

$ cd /opt/lcg/share/DPM/multiple-domains/
$ ./updateDomainName --domain-name "cern.ch" --db-vendor Oracle --db LFC --user dpm --pwd-file /path/to/dpm_password_file --verbose

The file containing the DPM user password should be readable only by you, and deleted afterwards.

Check

To check that the migration run well, execute :

$ dpm-qryconf

after you finished the configuration (ex. yaim's configure_node)

The disk servers should appear with the domain name.

When adding a new disk server, you should now specify the fully qualified hostname :

dpm-addfs --poolname Volatile --server se001.domain.name --fs /data01


Database schema upgrade

To add missing indexes in the database schema, you also have to run another script :

Mysql

$ mysql -u dpm_user -pdpm_password --database dpm_db < /opt/lcg/share/DPM/migrate-mysql-schema-to-2-1-0.sql

Oracle

$ sqlplus dpm_user/dpm_password@database_sid < /opt/lcg/share/DPM/migrate-oracle-schema-to-2-1-0.sql


Troubleshooting

In case the script complains about NLS_XXXX parameters, just unset all the NLS_XXXX environment variables before running the script :

unset NLS_LANG
unset ORA_NLS33
unset NLS_DATE_FORMAT


Help !
