Issue Description Mitigation Description
There was a problem with publishing of Nagios results regarding availability and reliability for 01.2011 The error was located durring february 2011. The nagios installation synchronized using GOCDB and LDAP, but the LDAP configuration scripts had error and reported that the data that our Nagios box sent was from EGI_NGI, and not NGI_MARGI. This resulted in rejection of submitted results by the engine, and the report for availability showd no data for NGI_MARGI sites.
