gLite 3.2

glite-BDII - Update to version 3.2.8-0.sl5

Date 27.04.2010
Priority High



New version of the BDII

This new version includes a new glite-info-provider-ldap. glite-info-provider-ldap 1.2.4 allows up to 10 MB per source and the script itself is now owned by root instead of nobody.

All top-level BDIIs need to be upgraded with high priority, otherwise jobs or users at some sites may no longer see CERN or other big sites included in the information system at some point.

A top-level BDII with the current glite-info-provider-ldap will reject any site that produces more than 5 MB of information system records.

This problem already occurred on April 16, when the BNL site BDII exceeded the 5 MB limit and the site dropped out of all EGEE/WLCG top-level BDIIs.

A known issue has been identied in this release of the BDII. The dependency on glite-info-provider-release is missing, and therefore, any new clean installation wont install this package. This issue will be solve in the next release of the BDII.

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