As of 31.05.12 the GOCDB service is provided through two portals: a read only instance at goc.egi.eu and a read/write instance at gocdb4.esc.rl.ac.uk. We would like to consolidate these and provide the service through one read/write portal at goc.egi.eu.


Two portals were provided to support the deployment of multiple "regional" read/write portals containing different data. These "regional" portals would publish their data to the "central" read-only portal. If a regional synchronising GOCDB is developed in future we can revert back to the old model.


  1. Bring up the changes at JRA-1 (Done 24.05.12)
  2. Create an RT ticket from the proposal and send it round OTAG/OMB (noc-managers@mailman.egi.eu; otag@mailman.egi.eu), JRA-1 + SA-1.
  3. Agree on a date
  4. Widely disseminate the change
    1. No more gocdb4.esc.rl.ac.uk
  5. Make the change

Technical Plan


Switch off gocdb4.esc.rl.ac.uk and switch goc.egi.eu to read/write mode.


Remove the "Portal Instance" user interface element Remove landing page Switch goc.egi.eu to read/write mode Power down gocdb4.esc.rl.ac.uk, save logs Remove gocdb4.esc.rl.ac.uk from DNS
