Preparations for the production deployment at named sites / defined dates continue on track.
Outstanding issues (that were blocking high-level tools) fixed with latest dCache releases - one new issue found
Similar situation also for CASTOR2 SRM - 1.1.5 release, available for deployment in coming week(s) - fixes outstanding bugs
A recent mail from Frank Wuerthwein proposes that dCache 1.8 is ready for production deployment at (CMS) Tier2s now (forwarded by GSSD & GDB mail lists).
CNAF (CASTOR2 + STORM - in production for ATLAS) is now available for testing by the experiments
It is important that experiments test - and in SRM V2.2 mode (this will come back under the CCRC'08 issue below.)
LHCb foresee restarting testing hopefully Thursday this week, along the lines of the original plan:
- transferring of data
- accessing data from applications on the WN
- deletion of data (not originally included in our list of tests)
