2. Operational issues

2.1 Report from DMSU

ARGUS/WMS Certificate Chain Mixups

  • Affecting several sites, where WMS is unable to make SSL connection to ARGUS.
  • With all probability this is a combination of using curl from the SL6 distribution, which in built with NSS SSL rather than OpenSSL and, as such, does not really support proxy certificates, and a bug in Java, hopefully fixed since Java 7 Update 60.
  • Related issues:
  • This issue is already being investigated at 3rd level but PTs cannot decide who is responsible ant DMSU is overseeing.

2.2 EMI-2 decommissioning

  • UMD2 APEL clients - GGUS: Sites using UMD2 APEL clients - 3 NGI didn't finish the update:
    • NGI_UA, NGI_DE, ROC_Asia/Pacific
      • especially GOeGrid, MY-UPM-BIRUNI-01 are still using UMD2 client
  • IMPORTANT - switching-off UMD2/EMI2 APEL service - Friday 16th January

2.5 SAM Nagios probes re-factoring

  • SAM Update 23
    • Staged-Rollout to be started this week (latest tomorrow)- staged-rollout repository in preparation
      • Staged-Rollout volunteers:

        • NGI_FI (Ulf Tigerstedt)
        • NGI_UK (Kashif Mohammad)
        • NGI_IBERGRID (Esteban Freire)
    • Documentation to be followed - - SAM Update 23 wiki
    • Major changes in SAM Update-23:
      • Probes are moved to the UMD-3 repository. This decision was approved by the OMB in order to enable probe developers to update probes more frequently and independently from SAM releases.
      • Removal of the SAM GridMon (sam-gridmon) and its dependencies. SAM Update-23 supports only SAM Nagios (sam-nagios). In the future version SAM GridMon will be replaced with the ARGO engine.
