For Tier 2 sites there's obviously the necessity of having end user data management tools. These should be installed automatically on worker nodes and user interface nodes.

In addition Tier 2s may need to install a local LCG File Catalog. This is used by Alice of the LHC VOs, but may be necessary for other EGEE, regional or local VOs.

The status, as reported at the Mumbai SC workshop in February 2006 is:

Tier 2 Data Management Servers
LCG VO Requirement for
LCG File Catalog
Alice Yes
Atlas No (only at T1s)
CMS No (will use 'trivial file catalog')
