Operations News

  • Functional tests pass under 2.1.13-9, tested with the January errata and kernel. We are now ready to start stress testing this version in preparation for upgrading the Facilities instance.
  • Four production tape servers now upgraded to 2.1.13-9 (3 in Tier 1 and 1 in Facilities). We plan to upgrade the rest this week.

Operations Problems

  • Lost 68 unmigrated files on a Gen disk server (gdss594) which had a double disk failure. This incident is being post mortemed.

Blocking Issues

  • aliceDisk still full. ALICE are aware.
