Grid Deployment Meeting (Monday Meeting)

Notes have been kindly provided by Harry.

  • Present: J.Shiers (chair), H.Renshall (notes)
  • Phone: P.Fuhrmann, T.Cass

Minutes of Previous meeting: No comments

Status of Site Upgrades:

JDS believes all sites have upgraded to srm2 but has had no confirmation from Triumf. PF announced that is now recommending the -12 release level and that IN2P3, PIC and BNL will be installing it this week.

Status of client tools:

JDS announced that gfal and lcg-utils have been released to production today but that another problem has been found with gfal. GD group is trying to fast-track a fix.

Location of installation Kits for Sites:

JDS said that dpm should be taken from the standard gLite distribution. For dcache PF said Tier1 sites should get it from In general the Tier2 should get dcache from the gLite repository at CERN where it has been fully validated but for CCRC'08 they should take the -12 version from (some already have). For May he hoped to get back to the standard distribution.

Next Calls:

JDS asked if we need to continue this series since deployment of SRM2 is complete and configuration/usage issues are being followed in a new daily and weekly CCRC'08 meeting. During the February run the weekly CCRC'08 Monday meeting will become part of the weekly EGEE operations meeting. HR thought this would not be appropriate for detailed Castor and dcache issues and PF agreed for dcache adding that he had nothing dramatic to look into at the moment. JDS thought there would be once CCRC'08 started. JDS will circulate some ideas to the mailing list of this meeting.

The date of the next conf call will depend on events.
