        • <big> EGEE issues coming from ROC reports </big>
          • ROC France:
            • GRID2-FR certificate were rejected by VOMS servers behind the alias voms.cern.ch. Steve Traylen fixed the problem this morning.
          • ROC SEE:
            • Sites in SEE requested to give top priority to bdii version 5 certification. There has been no progress in https://savannah.cern.ch/patch/?2623 for a month. This prevents more top bdiis to be deployed to better load balance as the current glite production bdii has numerous issues (GGUS ticket 43578)
          • ROC UK/I:
            • UKI-LT2-UCL-HEP - New CE now online and passing SAM tests. Decided to shorten downtime in GOCDB. Downtime lifted on 05/03 at 16.05. It took 10 hours for this information to be propagated through the system (e.g. SAM).

        • <big> WLCG issues coming from ROC reports </big>
          1. NE ROC :
            • Recently there has been a request from WLCG to reinstall the WNs with 64-bit SL5. In principle this is OK. We have had similar requests also from non-HEP users in the past. However, a substantial fraction of our user community depends on the UIs to compile their codes. So we would very much like the UI to be on the same platform as the WNs. For this reason we would like to have a 64-bit SL5 glite-UI or a 32-bit glite-UI which is certified on SL5 64-bit. Will such glite-UI release be made available and if so, when will it be available?
