Operations News

  • Late testing against preprod showed problems against 2.1.12 - forcing LHCb upgrade to be postponed:
    • xroot component kept crashing during testing on preprod due to a corrupted installation. Once xroot RPMs were reinstalled, everything was ok.
    • CIP broken due to architectural changes (breaking of svcclass/tapepool link in DB). A new version has been developed which relies upon the links being hardcoded in a configuration file.
  • Transfer manager has been doubled up across all instances
