|Title||Resource Center renaming|
|Last modified||8 June 2016|
|Policy Group Acronym||OMB|
|Policy Group Name||Operations Management Board|
|Procedure Statement||A procedure for changing name of a Resource Centre.|
|Owner||Owner of procedure|
The Resource Centre renaming procedure was created to define steps which have to be taken to rename a Resource Centre.
Note: This procedure is specifically aimed at Resource Centres using gLite. There should be very little difference in the procedure for Resource Centres supporting other middleware stacks.
Please refer to the EGI Glossary for the definitions of the terms used in this procedure.
The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", “MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119.
|Unit to Contact||Procedure||Remarks|
|1||Resource Centre||NGI operations Manager||Contact your NGI operations manager(s) to inform them and to ask for support about the procedure for renaming the Resource Centre.|
|2||Resource Centre||Make sure that your Resource Centre does not have open alarms in your (Regional) Operations Portal.||
|3||Resource Centre||Set up an scheduled downtime (it should be sufficient to schedule a downtime for only a few hours).
|4||Resource Centre||Edit the information for your Resource Centre in the GOCDB, goc.egi.eu. Change the Short Name, Official Name and GIIS URL to the new Resource Centre details.
|5||Resource Centre||Change the SITE_NAME YAIM variable on the site-BDII service and reconfigure it. It is also necessary to reconfigure all the services for your Resource Centre that use the SITE_NAME YAIM variable.|
|6||Resource Centre||Accounting Portal
||Open a GGUS ticket to the Accounting Portal (Responsible Unit) in order to move all the accounting data for your Resource Centre to the new Resource Centre||
||Open a GGUS ticket to the GGUS (Responsible Unit) in order to move all the local DB records under the old Resource Centre name to the new Resource Centre name|
||Open a GGUS ticket to the APEL (Responsible Unit) in order to let them know that you are going to change to your Resource Centre name.||
|9||Resource Centre||Expand the downtime if, by some reason, your site is failing SAM tests.||
|10||Resource Centre||Finally, as a courtesy, submit a broadcast to the VO managers for the VOs supported at your Resource Centre, in order to warn them about the name was change for your Resource Centre, and to inform them of the new name. The broadcast must be sent through the EGI BROADCAST TOOL, https://operations-portal.egi.eu/broadcast|
- GGUS tool: Change the 'notify site' field to the new site name for every open ticket vs the site.
- After the information is changed in the services and in GOC DB, for some tools like GGUS, GSTAT it can take a whole day in order to take the information about new Resources Centre name. Although it only should take a maximum of three hours for Nagios tests.
- This change should not affect the jobs running in the site nor the A/R metrics. If one simply modifies the site name in the GOCDB while preserving the PRIMARY_KEY for the site, SAM simply renames the Resource Centre without further impact and all availabilities (past and future) will be computed under the new Resource Centre name.
