2.2. Main Achievements

After the f2f OMB meeting in Lyon, we installed 2 more top-BDII service and configure the DNS server with NSUpdate patch. Now, NGI_TR has 3 top-BDII services which is loadbalanced with DNS roundrobin method. Also, we had a monitoring script which checks the availability of the top-BDII's and send an update to the DNS server for HA.

2.3. Issues and mitigation

Issue Description Mitigation Description
UMD top-BDII package configuration problems We tried to install the two of the top-BDII service of UMD for the HA of the top-BDII service of NGI_TR. It was installed and configured easily with the ldap2.4 packages. But the slapd deamon is not running stable so we had installed gLite3.2 service nodes. We will try to install UMD top-BDI once more to be able to open a GGUS ticket UMD for top-BDII service.
