glite-LFC_oracle - Update to version 3.2.1-0

Date 08.02.2010
Priority Normal



This patch introduces the glite-LFC_oracle metapackage for gLite 3.2

This is version 1.7.3 for both the LFC and DPM. It contains bug fixes for both services with respect to version 1.7.2, in particular:

  • Bug 53568, which could cause the DPM's SRM 2.2 server to crash
  • Bug 50686, which meant a malformed request could crash the LFC or the DPNS

Other issues which may be noticed by users or administrators:

  • DPM will now only publish information regarding static spaces to the information system, rather than information about all spaces.
  • dpm-listspaces reports space in units of powers of 1024 for normal user use, to be consistent with other DPM tools. When providing data for the information system quantities are reported in SI units, as required by the glue schema.

The xrootd plugin for ALICE for the DPM has been upgraded to version 2.1.0. As previously, in order to enable xrootd access the xroot daemons must be obtained separately - they are not included in the glite release. Plugin 2.1.0 is intended for use with xrootd-20090729.0855, see:

The updated xrootd base is expected to bring increased stability to the service. The DPM plugin is also has updated defaults for some settings, extra authentication settings and uses the most recent ALICE security plugin. See the CHANGES and RELEASE files in the CVS repository for a complete list of changes.

DPM Known issues:

For those upgrading from DPM 1.6.x please check the following for known issues and considerations relating to the database schema change:

In case the DPM gridftp fails to startup with the error message:

Starting dpm-gsiftp: /etc/sysconfig/dpm-gsiftp says NO: [FAILED]

please check that your /etc/sysconfig/dpm-gsiftp contains the line:


(for configuration files built from the 1.6 template this setting is missing)

New release of yaim core

New release of yaim core containing a set of bug fixes and new features:

  • New SAGA adapters. There's a new function called config_glite_saga that configures the SAGA gLite adapters.
  • grid environment cleaning mechanism to be able to install different WN tarball versions in the same machine.
  • Variables that were wrongly implemented in previous yaim releases are now fixed: CONFIG_GRIDMAPDIR and USER_HOME_PREFIX.
  • YAIM doesn't fail when gLite version package is not installed. This is useful for non gLite software using YAIM.
  • siteinfo packaging is now fixed (-p option).

New release of glite-version and glue-schema

The new glite-SE_dpm_disk metapackage introduces a new version of:

  • glite-version: new version of glite-version introducing a set of new options to print information about the versions of the installed gLite nodetypes, their architecture and their update number. It still prints information about the gLite release (i.e. 3.2.0).
  • glue-schema: minor update to change GLUE2PolicyUserDomainForeignKey from being mandatory to optional.

These two packages are also part of other services which are also updated to the new versions with this update,as it can be seen in the service detail pages.

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