gLite 3.0

glite-UI - Update to version 3.0.28-0

Date 28.11.07
Priority High


Updated Torque and Maui

It is expected that this torque (2.1.9-4) will work with the previous EGEE released version (2.1.6-1cri_sl3_2st) if it is convenient to be deployed or installed in a mixed version mode of pbs_server, pbs_mom or client commands.

The new version of Maui (3.2.6p19-4) is built with a shared key across all the architectures. This was not previously the case and all builds had their own random key. Subsequently a 32bit build of maui-client will now talk to a 64bit build of maui-server.

After install, please verify that pbs_server, pbs_mom and maui have been restarted everywhere. For the pbs_mom restarts the momctl utility in the torque-server rpm can be utilized.

Workaround required: /var/spool/maui/maui.cfg permissions should be 0644.

Along with patch #1384 (already in production), this release completes the fix for the following advisory;
