New Actions:

  • LHCb found issue with doing ESTOR on castor2 gridftp server(with srmcp client). Ben to check DEPLOYED


  • VOMS issue is known bug - fixed in 1.4.1 - workaround is to reboot VOMS server every 12 hours
  • I/O error on oplapro79 - this will cleaned by vlado (requires manual intervention by FIO, not sysadmin since we don't have hardware cover on the IA64 nodes)
  • New version of castor scheduler today
  • new security patch version of SLC3 - try and schedule for restart of FTS and LFC nodes on thursday to co-ordinate with FTS upgrade to 1.3 QF23
  • Vlado debugged the iptables issue. Will take rpm off nodes until problem is fixed ( doing a iptables --list will cause the problem again since kernel module is reloaded)

  • FTS (Gavin and Paolo) Matching the configuration today. The configuration of the pilot node has to be adapted. a modification for new updated needed. Next update of the pilot service forseen, depending on how far the fixes with the configuration are but probably next week (Gavin and Paolo). The pilot server will be update to the V1.4.1 while the servive node to the latest 1.3

  • CMS is working with a SE in Taiwan working with srmcopy. Commands have to be optimized. It has been communicated to the site manager and sent emails to CNAF and PIC to follow the same procedure (Olof)


Log: nothing reported. Problem with castor2 database - high load. could be related to excess polling processes on SRM.
