        • <big> URGENT upgrade of CA RPMs </big>
          The EUGridPMA have announced a new set of CA rpms. Upgrade for this release is considered to be *urgent* by the EGEE project. Based on this IGTF release, new CA RPMs have been packaged for EGEE. Please upgrade within 1 day. SAM started a 1 day timeout (including time needed to complete this CA release procedure). When timeout is over, SAM will throw critical errors on CA tests if old CAs are still detected. See the following page for more details about this new EGEE CA release : http://grid-deployment.web.cern.ch/grid-deployment/lcg2CAlist.html

          The site currently supports the following VOs: alice, atlas, lhcb, cms, biomed, dteam and ops

        • SARA: On may 21st from 9:00-14:00 CET there will be an outage of srm.grid.sara.nl due to network maintenance. This measure is necessary due to the installation of new storage hardware.

        • CYFRONET-IA64: We are going to shut down CYFRONET-IA64 completely at the end of May 2008.
          Please take care of your data you may have on our classic SE: ares03.cyf-kr.edu.pl.

  • <big> CMS report </big>

    • iCSA/CCRC activities progresses/issues reported by mail, HNs, hard yet to keep them up-to-date in ELOGs also, on a daily basis. But: getting now to a more stable running of iCSA/CCRC tests altogether, so we are catching up in fishing from HNs/mails and filling both ELOGs (setting original dates), needed tickets, and https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/bin/view/CMS/CCRC08-Phase2-OpsElog (bookmark and check back). Highlighted activities atm: analysis of T1-T1 tests as from last week; extension to non-regional T1-T2 transfer tests; production transfers with latency measurements to prepare for T1 workflows; T1 workflows consisting of (iCSA) re-processing and (CCRC) skimming at T1 sites, esploiting non-custodial areas also; final development on the monitoring side to accomodate feedback from CCRC running.
