Verify configuration records

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 June 22nd.

ARC Middleware 5 end of support, migration to ARC 6

  • Status
Date Number of endpoints in BDII Number of GGUS tickets Issues
2020-06-08 75 42 Some ARC endpoints publish a timestamp instead of a version like 5.X.Y; we can fairly assume they are ARC6 nightly builds, but we're going to close the corresponding tickets after explicit confirmation from the site admin.

LCGDM end of support and migration to / enabling of DOME

  • Deployment statistics (Jun 5th):
$ ldapsearch -x -LLL -H ldap:// -b "GLUE2GroupID=grid,o=glue" '(&(objectClass=GLUE2Manager)(GLUE2ManagerProductName=DPM))' GLUE2ManagerProductVersion GLUE2ManagerID | grep GLUE2ManagerProductVersion | sort | uniq -c

Liasing with WLCG to follow-up the upgrade. Opened GGUS tickets asking the following:

  • all the sites with older DPM versions than 1.12 are suggested to upgrade to the latest DPM version , following the guide DPM upgrade (chapter 1 Upgrade to DPM 1.10.0 "Legacy Flavour" and chapter 2 Upgrade to DPM 1.10.0 "Dome Flavour")
    • DOME and the old LCGDM (srm protocol) will coexist
  • Monitoring: sites should enable the monitoring of the HTTP/WebDav and/or GridFTP endpoints
    • register the storage service endpoint as webdav and/or globus-GRIDFTP service type, with production flag disabled, providing respectively the URL field and the Extension Properties information as explained in the HOWTO21
    • check if the tests are ok
    • switch the production flag to "yes"
