Operations News

  • Preprod instance now functioning again, and test tape server (tcastor200) now upgraded to 2.1.13.
  • After successfully testing 2.1.13 tape server, we have upgraded the first production tape server to 2.1.13 (lcgcts22)
  • 2.1.13-7 now released and we are advised by CERN to upgrade to this version.
  • Upgraded test systems to Jan errata and kernel

Operations Problems

  • A known bug of obfuscated VO name has re-appeared in the ATLAS SRMs. This was last seen in April 2012. https://savannah.cern.ch/bugs/index.php?91389 The developers are restarting investigation, which appears to be one of memory corruption introduced by the SRM code.
  • aliceDisk is full. The VO has been told.
  • Disk server draining continuing for ATLAS very slowly.

Blocking Issues

  • Can't upgrade puppet until someone spends time learning about administering it (to replace Chris) and this may delay an SL6 upgrade
