Status of UMD services & components
This table lists tests answers received from the TP regading the availability fo their components in EPEL 7, SL 7 and/or CentOS 7.
|APEL||APEL server & client||build done for RHEL 5 & RHEL 6, no "OS" 7 for the moment|
|ARC||-||nordugrid-arc is available in all EPEL (5,6,7) repos
- issue on missing dependency (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1138867), which means that ARC CE is currently not installable. The package owner is working on it.
|Grid Information System||bdii, glue-schema - available in EPEL 7|
|CREAM||not available for or tested against EPEL 7|
|CREAM (S)GE module||-|
|CERN Data Management||DPM, LFC, FTS3, DMC clients||All major packages are there (EPEL 7).
The building was pretty painless, once all dependencies arrived (in EPEL7) things started to work.
As for the runtime, we don't do regular testing on this platform yet, indeed we haven't announced that it's supported. We will start certifying stuff soon.
We intend to certify with plain CentOS7, not aware of any other variants out there (although CERN will produce a variant for its own use).
|dCache||server & srm-client||dCache RPMs do not depend on anything EPEL provides, so the RPMs should work fine with EPEL 7.
The dcap RPMs do have dependencies that EPEL satisfies, v. 2.47.8-1.el7 available in EPEL7
|UI/WN||no tests done - if all clients are working the UI/WN should work also|
|Frontier Squid||Frontier Squid||"OSG recompiles for the two OS (SL5,SL6) variants and are currently setting up their koji build system to also compile on SL7"|
|gLExec-wn||We currently only have LCMAPS in EPEL (and Fedora) and have requested release also to EPEL7.
We can build all our software against CentOS+EPEL7 but have not yet performed any run-time testing.
