      • This is a reminder that this is an important task. The minute taker gives access to the discussions for those not present and provides a reference for others to refer back to afterwards.

      • The team composition has been changing. If everybody contributes then the task comes around less often.

      • Please extract actions from the meeting and add them to our table here: https://www.gridpp.ac.uk/wiki/Operations_Team_Action_items#Action_list.

      • Recent allocations: See above link. The page should be updated each week by the minute taker (if they don't the task will keep coming to them!).

        T2: https://cms-site-readiness.web.cern.ch/cms-site-readiness/SiteReadiness/HTML/SiteReadinessReport.html#T2_UK_London_Brunel

      From Daniela: CMS: Brunel still has problems, Raul is working on it, the other sites look fine.
      The Imperial Phedex had a slight hiccup last night due to the disk being full, that is now fixed. I submitted two tickets about file transfer issues at RAL, they are being worked on. They only affect a tiny bit of data, so the impact for the average user should be zero.
      Apart from Brunel, which is understood, all CMS sites look good in the monitoring.

      • ATLAS

      • Other: Updates should be recorded in https://www.gridpp.ac.uk/wiki/GridPP_VO_Incubator.

      Also from Daniela:
      *T2K (LFC to DFC): We really really need QMUL which is a major T2K site to deal with their storage. Details in:
      We haven't quite got round to the three small sites (LIV, OX, SHEF) still missing (because I spend all my time setting up an IRIS cloud), but we haven't forgotten.

      *MICE (LFC to DFC): This is going much better (less sites, less data).

      *LZ changed one of their voms servers. The Operations Portal has updated now. If you support LZ, please check if:

      is up to date.
