Hi,

 There is some info here concerning what will be the upcoming 2.6.0 release.
 This is not a general release as yet though.

Dear ROC managers,

this is the release note for the pre-release of LCG-2_6_0

The purpose of the pre-release is to allow the three ROCs, Italy, UK/ 
IE, and SE to do a deployment test and give feedback before the  
release is
made public. We expect to receive feedback during next week.

Since serious problems might be found it is not advisable to use the  
pre-release as the basis for regional customization, please wait the  
extra week.

The pre-release has already the same version number as the final  
release, we will just re-tag the public release.

The pre-release doesn't come with the completely updated   
documentation. Instead we will provide comments on the configuration  
changes compared to
the LCG-2_4_0 release in the site-info.def file at the end of this mail


Contacts:
=======

Problems with the pre-release should NOT be sent to public lists to  
avoid a wrong perception of the deployability of the release.

Please sent problems to the following people:

Upgrades paths that are supported
------------------------------------------------

2_4_0 -> 2_6_0

and installation from scratch.

Since 2_5_0 is very close to 2_4_0 we are quite confident  that this  
works too.

If your site is on 2_5_0 you still have to upgrade because 2_6_0  
contains major changes.



Read this if you opt to ignore all documentation:
======================================

The glue schema has changed to GLUE-1.2.

If you upgrade any node that provides information for the information  
system (BDII) make sure that you FIRST upgrade the
elements higher in the hierarchy. First the BDII, then the Site BDII  
and at the end the GRIS on the nodes.

The schema is backward compatible, but a pre 1.2 element will ignore  
entries that use the new schema.


Do not configure the FTS clients on your T1 or T2 center unless you  
are participating in the SC3 activity and you know
who your T0/T1 center is! If in doubt, have a look at the SC3 page.

FTS services are configured with direct help by the SC3 team at CERN.

DO NOT INSTALL A FTS SERVER UNLESS YOU ARE A T1 IN SC3

Make sure you understand how to configure the LFC as a local  
catalogue or as a replica catalogue and that
you know what you want to setup.

Only install one of the new VO-boxes after you have clarified with  
the VO that you want to support on it  that they will use this as a  
pilot service.
Documentation on how to use this node will be provided shortly via  
the GOC-wiki pages.


Where can I find the link to the new release?
-----------------------------------------------------------------

here:  http://grid-deployment.web.cern.ch/grid-deployment/gis/yaim- 
devel/lcg-yaim-2.6.0-0.noarch.rpm


Now some more details
==================



GLUE 1.2
--------------

The new version of the Glue Schema is backwards compatible although  
the top level BDIIs need to be upgraded first. If a site update to  
the new information providers before the top level BDII has been  
upgrade the site will be rejected by the BDII.

This affects ALL nodes that provide data for the information system.  
In addition several of the client tools to access the
information system have been adapted, like the popular lcg-infosites.

Details on the new schema can be seen here:   http:// 
infnforge.cnaf.infn.it/glueinfomodel


LFC 1.3.5
-------------

The LFC has now two different usages. As a central replica catalogue  
and as a local file catalogue.
Make sure you don't get confused when setting up a node.
Depending if you install a local or a central LFC, the information to
publish in the Information System

It nows supports sessions, and a Python interface is provided as a
separate RPM. In addition the DLI interface is supported.

The LFC Administrator's Guide is available at :
http://goc.grid.sinica.edu.tw/gocwiki/How_to_set_up_an_LFC_service

The archived LFC support mailing list to contact is :
[log in to unmask]

The release includes YAIM install-scripts for use with MySQL backends.
For the ORACLE backend, refer to the LFC Administrator's Guide.
For both backends, meta-rpms are provided.

The LFC service is relevant for all those sites that either host and  
LFC for VOs, or provide the service of a local LFC catalogue.



DPM 1.3.5
----------------

The DPM Administrator's Guide is available at :
http://goc.grid.sinica.edu.tw/gocwiki/ 
How_to_install_the_Disk_Pool_Manager_%28DPM%29

The archived DPM support mailing list to contact is :
[log in to unmask]

The DPM includes secure rfio, and a DPM-enabled standard GridFTP server.

For SEs based on DPM, YAIM installation and configuration scripts are
provided for the MySQL based version. For the ORACLE backend version,
refer to the DPM Administrator's Guide. For both backends, meta-rpms are
provided.

The minimal configuration, where the disk server and the DPM servers are
located on the same machine, is supported by YAIM.

Bugs fixed : #9293, #9393, #9510



VO-BOX 1.0.0
----------------------

This is a pilot version of the node type that allows VOs to run their  
own user level agents.
VO's software managers can use their certificates to get interactive  
access to these nodes and install
the agents. Mechanisms for proxy renewal are provided. This uses gsi- 
ssh.

We don't suggest that sites set these nodes up immediately unless a  
VO approaches them directly.

Documentation on the usage will be provided at the beginning of the  
week on the GOC-wiki page.


FTS
------
The clients are part of the UIs and WNs and supported by YAIM scripts.

The server installation is described on the service challenge WIKI page:

https://uimon.cern.ch/twiki/bin/view/LCG/LCGServiceChallenges

See the section "Read this if you opt to ignore all documentation:"  
for details on who should install/configure this.



New and updated software
======================


Data Management Client:
-------------------------------------
There are now LCG data management libs with timeouts. These should  
make it easier to
handle the all to frequent problems with hanging calls.

Lcg_util and GFAL have been modifed to acdept a timeout parameter (-t
SECS). This is used to timeout both gridftp transfers and interactions
with the SRM. CTRL-C is now caught during gridftp transfers too, and the
transfer is cleaned up properly.

This requires an update of the WNs and UIs.

VDT 1.2.2:
--------------
Updated

Workload Management 1.6.8:
------------------------------------------
Updated

Information System:
----------------------------
BDII now supports the new GLUE 1.2 schema and nolonger uses iptables.
The information providers also publish GLUE 1.2 information.
The RB now has a dynamic plug-in that gets information about the load.


dCache:
-----------
The configuration contains several fixes and enhancements provided by  
GridPP


R-GMA
------------
The new glite1.2  version of R-GMA.
This is setup in a compatibility mode offering secure and in-secure  
services.

Monitoring
----------------
Significant new or improved components are now available.

There is a sensor for gridFTP logfiles that allows to monitor the  
transfers from a globus gridFTP server
There is a new sensor for the job state found in the lb server on the  
RB.
There is a new sensor that monitors the resource usage of running jobs.
All of the above are based on R-GMA.

In addition monitoring for stdout and error while jobs are running is  
now available.
Documentation on the usage will be provided shortly on the GOC-Wiki

Accounting
-------------------
Updated to work with the glite version of R-GMA and now supports LSF

VOMS
----------
new version

YAIM
---------

Bug fixes, new services and adaptation to the new glue schema.

The install and configure node types have been unified.
The list of node types can be found in the file:

/opt/lcg/yaim/scripts/node-info.def

To extract the list do:

cat /opt/lcg/yaim/scripts/node-info.def  | grep FUNC | sed "s/ 
_FUNC.*//g"
