Operational issues

Report from DMSU

  • FYI: Collocated CREAM and ARGUS authorization issues. There were two similar issues where CREAM's queries to ARGUS were being refused. Quoting from the solution: The issue was caused by configuration of CREAM and Argus nodes with different group sets on the same machine. This is not supported by YAIM, special care is necessary. Since this problem cropped up at least twice in very short succession, it may be worth mentioning. No special action is necessary, though.
