      • 4:00 PM 4:20 PM
        EGEE Items 20m
        • <big>Central Grid-Operator-on-Duty (c-COD) handover</big>
          From Northern Europe to Italy

          Site BEgrid-UGent (NE) has a ticket (GGUS Ticket-ID: 50950) which has been specifically raised to C-COD as there has been no response from the site. This issue/ticket has been in this state for over a week.
          Site MY-MIMOS-GC-01 (AP) has a ticket (GGUS Ticket-ID: 51135) where the site has been unresponsive. The problem is an APEL problem, and Vera requested that they act on this again. It might actually be a problem at the other end, but she had no way of verifying this. (AP sent an email last week saying that they are waiting for a reply from the central registration service.)

          Heads-up about a nominally transparent intervention at FZK-LCG2 tomorrow: 29-09-2009, 8:00 - 10:00 UTC. Due to the application of an Oracle patch, GridKa/DE-KIT's LHCb 3D/LFC database is at risk. In addition, front-end update to LFC 1.7.2-4.

          • REMINDER: Security vulnerabilities

            Last month several alerts were sent to all sites about critical security vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel (CVE-2009-2692 and CVE-2009-2698).

            • a number of sites still have not upgraded
            • the EGEE PMB agreed to suspend the vulnerable sites (but they will be warned in advance)
            • all sites having questions/issues should contact their ROC security contact

          • Reminder for sites to move to WMS 3.2 (available in gLite repository). This must be done by the end of October!
