Assigned to Due date Description State Closed Notify  
GiuseppeMIsurelli 2010-02-19 Provide a report describing the issues being faced by CNAF for the installation of glexec on the WNs.

INFN-T1 is experiencing a problem on the stability of GPFS interacting with the WN on demand system adopted locally into the resource center.
Since they decided to provide virtual WNs for the pilot, the issue is affecting consequently the deployment of the glexec WN component into the site.

Status and results of the pilot service (by VOs and sites)

CMS (Claudio) reported that a test with glideins at KIT has failed. No schedule available yet for the next round of tests by Igor which they hope however to happen in the next days. Claudio confirmed that Igor has been talking directly with Angela. Antonio asked to notify the mailing list when the tests would re-start.
ALICE (Patricia, via e-mail), nothing to report from the developers
ATLAS -Absent . Maxim, contacted during the meeting said that he had nothing to report.

Antonio will contact them directly to remind that there is a large installation at KIT that can be exploited

FZK (Angela, via e-mail)

KIT has updated ARGUS to version 1.1 and with this also gLExec (pep client) on the PPS WNs. Concerning the CMS tests (via PPS lcg-CE): I am not sure why the CMS proxy was not mapped to the right account but I have white-listed the account the proxy was mapped to and also changed some entries in the grid-mapfile. I did not see a second test from CMS yet. No other VO has tested as far as I can see - no mapping in ARGUS' gridmapdir)

IFIC (Javier, via e-mail):

We have installed the service and one WN on two virtual machines for testing purpose and I think that extending the installation to our production site would be difficult.

CESNET: Absent:
INFN-CNAF: absent, Andrea joined when after the conference was closed. Claudio confirmed anyway the pregresses were made with the installation at the T1
SWITCH: nothing to report
Operations: Antonio
