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

  • Central SAM services were migrated 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.
  • The following instances are not yet configured, and tkts have been opened to follow them up:
    • - NGI_DE #105128 - tkt still open
    • - NGI_IL #105133 - tkt still open - NGI_IL is unresponsive

  • 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.

2.3 EMI-2 decommissioning

  • Probes are running in midmon: Documentation.
    • All products but dCache are being retired as previously announced. dCache extended the support for the 2.2.x versions until July 2014.
    • Important Notes:
      • APEL is one of the UMD 2/EMI 2 services no more supported - but there are still sites (23 sites as of 15.06.2014) publishing accounting information using UMD 2/EMI 2 APEL clients - see list available at: APEL consumer
      • Tutorial on how to migrate APEL clients from EMI 2 to EMI 3 - available at APEL @ EGI CF 2014
   No. Sites per NGI - using UMD2 APEL clients.jpg
