140283 atlas solved less urgent 19/03/2019 20/03/2019 File Transfer UK RAL-LCG2: DESTINATION SRM_PUT_TURL error WLCG Corrected ownership of the CASTOR dir to atlas001:atlas
140278 cms solved urgent 19/03/2019 22/03/2019 CMS_Data Transfers Transfers failing from FNAL_Buffer to RAL_Disk WLCG we had a problem with ECHO mistakenly returning the correct size and checksum for files which failed transfers and were corrupt which resulted in them being marked as good by PhEDEx and then lying latent until they were accessed or transferred out.

Transfers recovered.

140210 atlas solved top priority 14/03/2019 19/03/2019 File Transfer Cannot access some files WLCG These files were lost from RAL-LCG2-ECHO_DATADISK, probably due to an FTS bug which should now be fixed. They were identified here because they were needed by the production team. The ticket submitter has now marked them lost in Rucio.

Independently, we have been analysing the results of the Rucio consistency checker. It identified 163 files lost from this disk. The 5 files listed in this ticket are among the 163. We will mark the remaining files lost in Rucio.

140177 cms solved urgent 13/03/2019 18/03/2019 CMS_Data Transfers RAL FTS - Transfers failing from T1_US_FNAL_Disk to some sites WLCG IPv6 was registered, although not fully enabled at FNAL. RAL had IPv6 fully enabled, so expected to transfer via that connection, however it was timing out and not falling back to IPv4. FNAL removed the IPv6 address, and since then the link has been green.
140082 atlas closed less urgent 06/03/2019 21/03/2019 Other RAL-LCG2 squid service degraded WLCG squid01 node is back serving requests.

There was an overnight problem with the underlying storage for this VM node.

139990 cms solved urgent 01/03/2019 20/03/2019 CMS_AAA WAN Access T1_UK_RAL xrootd segfaulted WLCG The issue is intermittent and occasional. This segfault is most likely a known problem, which will be addressed in xrootd version 4.9, along with other fixes. RAL will install this when available.
139983 t2k.org closed less urgent 28/02/2019 21/03/2019 File Access Failed to bring files online at RAL-tape EGI See above.
139858 cms closed urgent 23/02/2019 18/03/2019 CMS_Data Transfers Failing transfers of 7 files from T1_UK_RAL_Disk to T2_FR_GRIF_LLR WLCG Missing chunks, so deleted the files and they are now retransferred.
139639 cms closed very urgent 12/02/2019 22/03/2019 CMS_AAA WAN Access file open error at RAL WLCG files retransfered
139476 mice closed less urgent 01/02/2019 22/03/2019 Other LFC dump for MICE VO EGI DB dump provided.
139306 dteam closed less urgent 24/01/2019 20/03/2019 Monitoring perfsonar hosts need updating EGI Hosts updated and additional information added. Thanks!
138500 cms closed urgent 26/11/2018 22/03/2019 CMS_Data Transfers Transfers failing from T2_PL_Swierk to RAL WLCG block size changed to default
138033 atlas solved urgent 01/11/2018 26/03/2019 Other singularity jobs failing at RAL EGI As the new batch containers have been fully rolled out and appear to have been working since the 18/03/19 I'm going to call this one as solved.
