Operations News

  • ORACLE client bug fix was due to a badly built RPM from ORACLE. It was fixed by replacing it with an updated library repackaged from CERN.
  • The cause of the intermittent SUM user timeouts was traced to a race condition in the 2.1.12 disk manager. A fix was pushed out to all production disk servers via Puppet and we are not seeing any more occurrences of the bug.

Operations Problems

  • None

Blocking Issues

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