gLite 3.0

glite-FTA_oracle - Update to version 3.0.11-0

Date 14.05.07
Priority High



Important note: FTA and FTS nodes have to be reconfigured with THE NEW CONFIGURATION TARGET FTA2 and FTS2

This is an early release of the new modular release series and it enables the new FTS and FTA configuration. The new configuration targets FTA2 and FTS2 have to be used. That is, yaim should be run with options -n FTS2 and/or -n FTA2.

Other new features of this update are the following:
  • In site-info.def the VOAGENT_PYTHON agent type should be replaced with VOAGENT. All the defined typdefault variables should be changed correspondingly.
  • Two new YAIM variables are introduced. They are not compulsory to be set and have default values as in the following:
    # The DPM db name. Default is dpm_db
    # The DPNS db name. Default is cns_db
    This is to allow the usage of the same remote DB server serving several DPM node.
Other important issues when upgrading glite-yaim are the following:
  • Important: apt-autoupdate not supported, i.e. do the upgrade and the reconfiguration in one process. As always, it is recommended to do a DB backup before the upgrade.
  • Important: After the reconfiguration, DPM will use BDII as information provider instead of MDS. Because of this, the connect string and the port number on the site-BDII has to be changed as follows:
    • from "mds-vo-name=local,o=grid"
      to "mds-vo-name=resource,o=grid"
    • and from 2135 to 2170 respectively.
    Reconfigure and restart your site-BDII.

    Note: As a side effect of this reconfiguration the lcg-cr command will not work if your LCG_GFAL_INFOSYS variable is pointing to the DPM's infosys instead of a top-level BDII. This is not a bug, just a consequence worth to mention.
FTS Update 2.0

Important note: The current WLCG planning foresees running version FTS 2.0 only at CERN-PROD for a few weeks. Tier-1 sites should remain at version 1.5 until contacted by FTS support.

R-GMA client

This upgrade introduces new exceptions RGMABusyException and RGMANoWorkingReplicasException for R-GMA. These exceptions can be thrown in a future server versions of R-GMA and this update will enable rollout of clients that can handle this exception in readiness for a server update.
