since gfal_util doesn't work instead of debugging it I've started to look into the dirac file catalogue clients, which have better compatiblity chances on top of having the file catalogue. See VO-LSST-014

VOI-LSST-009 voms-proxy-init EMI-3 not working AF, DB Closed 2015-01-11 FNAL upgraded the VOMS to a EMI-3 clients compatible version. Ticket https://ggus.eu/index.php?mode=ticket_info&ticket_id=117587 closed.
VOI-LSST-010 Update the Operations portal with correct VOMS info AF Closed 2015-01-05 LSST US managers added voms1 and voms2 to the ops portal. http://operations-portal.egi.eu/vo/view/voname/lsst
VOI-LSST-011 Long lived proxies AF In progress 2016-02-22 Ticket with FNAL RITM0302478. The mechanisms of renewal and how LHC experiments do it is now understood. Using dirac may help, but this needs to be tested. See VO-LSST-18
VOI-LSST-012 Check with NERSC how to use gridftp, authentication and authorisation mechanisms JZ, ME, AF Closed 2015-01-11 NERSC account required to do the transfers. Marcus has now an account.

More info in
Files transferred to Manchester with correct directory naming scheme is working. See VOI-LSST-015.
VOI-LSST-015 Spread the LSST data on different sites AF In progress 2016-02-09 https://its.cern.ch/jira/browse/GRIDPP-31
All data on a test SE instance for 20,000 foreseen jobs. Currently only 3 SEs (Ed, Man, Liv) enabled and mostly on older hardware. Replication will also allow to solve the registration problem by copying to a subdirectory <storage_path>/lsst/lsst. First leg of the distribution done. All files copied to Manchester.
VOI-LSST-016 Move to use gridpp VO because GridPP management requested to run an analysis with any "means possible" AF, JZ, RF, DB, KM In progress 2016-02-16 Requires direct job submission and longer proxies.
Joe has submitted his jobs and the majority run. There

were problems in Bristol and Cambridge which are under investigation. Joe was recommended to remove them from the list for now and resubmit the jobs. With this

VOI-LSST-17 Edinburgh LSST data access ME Closed 2016-02-08 The local time out problem with the data access was solved and data is available now for jobs and transfers without timing out
VOI-LSST-18 Adapt Joe's ganga and bash scripts to submit to dirac and use the dirac file catalog clients instead of gfal_utils. AF In progress 2016-02-23 the current scripts use gfal which is incompatible with dirac job submission. This was a stumbling block that forced us to go back to use gridpp and direct job submission. The scripts are modified and run successfully two jobs at UKI-SOUTHGRID-RALPP (ARC). I've also tested with a larger sample of 165 which is currently still running in RALPP,Liverpool and Manchester. Jobs run also in Lancs but failed there (to be investigated). 165 jobs run is almost finished.
VOI-LSST-19 Run a larger sample of jobs (effectively 2500) AF, JZ In progress 2016-02-25 https://its.cern.ch/jira/browse/GRIDPP-33
VOI-LLST-20 Implement JZ workflow in plain dirac cli ME In Progress 2016-03-01 dirac cli is implemented in scripts and usable for job submission and getting OutputSandbox using a given input file list, a test running over 1000 input files was successful, needs to be tested for overall analysis usage by JZ

All Monte Carlo for the TDR was generated using Dirac and shell scripts. Only a few extra TDR jobs being run to fix holes. After TDR next step is to have full gaudi simulations.
LZ has been successfully running large scale simulations at Imperial.
Currently the following CEs are enabled for LZ, but anything apart from Imperial needs testing (and Sheffield needs pilot roles):
ceprod05.grid.hep.ph.ic.ac.uk:8443/cream-sge-grid.q, ceprod06.grid.hep.ph.ic.ac.uk:8443/cream-sge-grid.q, ceprod07.grid.hep.ph.ic.ac.uk:8443/cream-sge-grid.q, ceprod08.grid.hep.ph.ic.ac.uk:8443/cream-sge-grid.q
