glite-FTA_oracle - Update to version 3.0.16-0

Date 14.01.08
Priority Normal


This update fixes various bugs. For the full list of bugs, please see list below.
YAIM updates

Please see the general release page for the YAIM release notes.
VOMS API/client Updates

Update to voms 1.7.24 and gSOAP 2.7.
FTS / FTA / FTM Updates

The FTS, FTA and FTM service node types now include a utility sd2cache. This is a daily cron to maintain your /opt/glite/etc/services.xml file. Previously this was done with the script available from the TWiki. This is just a packaged and released version of that script.

The cron is configured by the file


which will be set up by yaim if using yaim.

In addition the dependencies of the metapackage glite-FTS_oracle have been corrected:
  • wrong dependency on glite-BDII has been corrected to bdii
  • unnecessary dependency on openldap-alt has been removed
Please also have a look at the list of known issues.
