(EMI 1) StoRM v. 1.8.3

Support Calendar

StoRM 1.11.1 was released in UMD-3. StoRM 1.8.3 security support ends on July 15 2013.

End of security updates of StoRM was scheduled after three weeks of the complete and successful process of staged rollout for a version of StoRM for UMD-3.

Decommissioning Calendar

StoRM 1.8.3 or older versions must be upgraded to a supported release within one month after the end of security support of the EMI-1 version 1.8.3.

The current version of StoRM available in UMD-3 (v.1.11.1) has performance issues, and currently the installation of this version is discouraged. Without a replacement for the EMI-1 version, the deadline for the decommission of EMI-1 StoRM is currently not fixed. It will be updated once the patch is available in UMD.

Monitoring tests which identify StoRM production instances which reach end of support are now raising warnings in the midmon nagios instance.
