How to publish the OS name (Draft)

Policy

It has been decided that the 3 fields

GlueHostOperatingSystemName
GlueHostOperatingSystemRelease
GlueHostOperatingSystemVersion 

should be parsed from the output of /usr/bin/lsb_release, like this:

GlueHostOperatingSystemName : `lsb_release -i | cut -f2`
GlueHostOperatingSystemRelease : `lsb_release -r | cut -f2`
GlueHostOperatingSystemVersion : `lsb_release -c | cut -f2`

yielding values like

GlueHostOperatingSystemName : ScientificSL
GlueHostOperatingSystemRelease : 5.5
GlueHostOperatingSystemVersion : Boron

This has been tested on various Linux flavors and should work on every serious GNU/Linux distro :).

For Scientific Linux 6 and 5.8 operating system : Use the value "ScientificSL" instead of the output of `lsb_release -i | cut -f2` ("Scientific")for CE_OS in siteinfo.def.

If you managed to run a middleware on other *NIX, *BSD, (or even on MS Windows ?), then feel free to provide any information you desire.

Setup with YAIM

Edit the site-info.def of your Computing Element, and correct these variables before running the configure_node script:

A correct example is:

CE_OS="ScientificSL"
CE_OS_RELEASE=5.5
CE_OS_VERSION="Boron"

Results

For different operating systems please run the above commands and enter the values as returned. The lsb_release column indicates as to if lsb_release was used to give the values. If lsb_release is not available or returns complete rubbish then enter a sensible value indicating that lsb_release was not used. In particular the early Scientific Linux releases had a broken lsb_release which has been corrected in subsequent versions.

Matching to an Operating System in Your JDL

Microsoft Windows

Requirements = GlueHostOperatingSystemName == "Microsoft WINDOWS"  ;

AIX Unix

Requirements = GlueHostOperatingSystemName == "AIX" ;

RHEL 3 Binary Compatible with {edg|glite}-job-{wms}-{submit|list-match}

Requirements = (( other.GlueHostOperatingSystemName  == "CentOS" ||
                  other.GlueHostOperatingSystemName  == "RedHatEnterpriseAS"
                ) &&
                ( other.GlueHostOperatingSystemRelease >= 3.0 &&
                  other.GlueHostOperatingSystemRelease < 4.0
                )

                )
               ) ;

RHEL 4 Binary Compatible with {edg|glite}-job-{wms}-{submit|list-match}

Requirements = ( other.GlueHostOperatingSystemName  == "CentOS" ||
                 other.GlueHostOperatingSystemName  == "RedHatEnterpriseAS"  ||
                 other.GlueHostOperatingSystemName  == "ScientificSL" ||

               ) ;

RHEL 3 Binary Compatible with gLite WMS >= 3.1 and glite-wms-job-{submit|list-match}

If you are using a newer gLite WMS then the following match is better in the sense it makes less assumptions about what is out there and it can be assigned to a variable which makes it easier to use. The previous two matches still work though.

RHEL3 = (( other.GlueHostOperatingSystemName  == "CentOS" ||
           other.GlueHostOperatingSystemName  == "RedHatEnterpriseAS"
         ) &&
         ( other.GlueHostOperatingSystemRelease >= 3.0 &&
           other.GlueHostOperatingSystemRelease < 4.0
         )
        ) ||
        (( other.GlueHostOperatingSystemName  == "Scientific Linux" ||
           other.GlueHostOperatingSystemName  == "Scientific Linux CERN"
         ) &&
         ( RegExp("3\.[0-9]\.[0-9]",other.GlueHostOperatingSystemRelease)
         )
        ) ;
Requirements = RHEL3 ;

RHEL 4 Binary Compatable with Glite WMS >= 3.1 and glite-wms-job-{submit|list-match}

If you are using a newer gLite WMS then the following match is better in the sense it makes less assumptions about what is out there and it can be assigned to a variable which makes it easier to use.

RHEL4 = (  other.GlueHostOperatingSystemName  == "CentOS" ||
           other.GlueHostOperatingSystemName  == "RedHatEnterpriseAS"  ||
           other.GlueHostOperatingSystemName  == "ScientificSL" ||
           other.GlueHostOperatingSystemName  == "ScientificCERNSLC"
        ) &&
        ( other.GlueHostOperatingSystemRelease >= 4.0 &&
          other.GlueHostOperatingSystemRelease < 5.0
        ) ;
Requirements = RHEL4 ;

or

SN    = other.GlueHostOperatingSystemName ;
SR    = other.GlueHostOperatingSystemRelease ;
RHEL4 = ( SN  == "CentOS" || SN == "RedHatEnterpriseAS"  ||
          SN  == "ScientificSL" || SN  == "ScientificCERNSLC"
        ) &&
        ( SR >= 4.0 && SR < 5.0
