On a yearly basis, the information registered into GOC-DB need to be verified. NGIs and RCs have been asked to check them. In particular:

  1. NGI managers should review the people registered and the roles assigned to them, and in particular check the following information:
    • E-Mail
    • ROD E-Mail
    • Security E-Mail
NGI Managers should also review the status of the "not certified" RCs, in according to the RC Status Workflow;
  1. RCs administrators should review the people registered and the roles assigned to them, and in particular check the following information:
    • E-Mail
    • telephone numbers
    • CSIRT E-Mail
RC administrators should also review the information related to the registered service endpoints.

The process should be completed by Apr 28th.

To track the process, a series of tickets have been opened.

Decommissioning EMI WMS

As discussed at the last OMB, we are making plans for decommissioning the WMS and moving to DIRAC. We asked the NGIs (GGUS 126787) to provide statistics about the WMS usage in order to understand how much it is used and which VOs would be affected (and potentially interested) by this transition. Several NGIs have already provided some data, we are preparing a VOs list to contact.

2017-04-10 UPDATE: VOs that we can try to contact:

Proposal to modify the declaration of scheduled interventions

Currently (see MAN02 Service intervention management) scheduled interventions (of any duration) MUST be declared at least 24 hours in advance, specifying reason and duration; any intervention declared less than 24 hours in advance will be considered unscheduled.

WLCG proposed the following modification:

We are going to take a decision by the next OMB.
