2.1 Report from DMSU

  • from Alessandro Paolini:
    • The nagios probe eu.egi.sec.DPM-GLUE2-EMI-1 should be modified because it tries to detect some information that the new version of DPM doesn't publish any more

2.2 Migration of Central SAM services & reconfiguration of NGIs SAM instances

  • Central SAM services are in the process of migrating from CERN to the new consortium (GRNET, CNRS and SRCE). In order to enable smooth transition we have agreed to start using new hostnames:
    • for
    • for
  • CERN services will be operational until May 1st. Afterwards aliases will point to new instances.
  • If Regional & VO SAM instances are not re-configurred *it will stop working* after the switch off of the CERN instance.

  • Configuration advices:
    1. NGI and VO SAM Nagios instances
      • Create file /etc/voms2htpasswd-static.d/opsmon.conf with the following content:
    2. NGI SAM Nagios instances
      • Set the following two variables in YAIM:
    3. Rerun YAIM
    4. /opt/glite/yaim/bin/yaim -c -s site-info.def -n NAGIOS -n SAM_NAGIOS

    If you prefer not to run YAIM skip the steps 2 & 3 and perform the following:

    1. NGI and VO SAM Nagios instances
      • Restart service voms-htpasswd:
      service voms-htpasswd restart
    2. NGI SAM Nagios instances
      • Modify parameter POEM_SYNC_NS_URLS in file /etc/poem/poem_sync.ini:
      • Modify parameter ATP_ROOT_URL in file ncg/ncg.conf:
      ATP_ROOT_URL= Parameter is repeated several times, you need to modify it on all places.
