Operations News

  • CASTOR 2.1.13-9 repository and templates have been setup in Quattor
  • Two Production tape servers upgraded to 2.1.13-9 with latest errata and tested to be ok.

Operations Problems

  • (Wed) CMS tape test was unroutable.
  • SRM bug corrupting VO names is still affecting ATLAS. No shortterm fix likely since error is due to a dependency (CGSI-gSOAP), possibly only when we move to SL6 and upgrade the dependency.

Blocking Issues

  • Can't upgrade puppet until someone spends time learning about administering it (to replace Chris) and this may delay an SL6 upgrade
  • aliceDisk still full. ALICE are aware.
