Hi Louis and all
by now I am used to that this issue comes in waves to the lcg rollout
from time to time.
at LIP-Lisbon we have
PPS-LIP fully slc4 for a long time, meaning
lcg-CE (containing the site bdii)
the UI was one of the most problematic simply because of the
glite-ui-config, which had to be python 2.2 (were 2.3 is on the distro
this was solved in the meantime, don't remember which patch
DPM dCache and LFC and MON were rather straight forward after you add
some packages from the slc3 (don't need to downgrade anything as far
as I remember)
the WN's you already have now
for the lcg-CE (don't have experience with glite-CE) there was a
problem with the torque wanting to have tcl/tk 8.3 , we forced it
I never knew why torque depends = tcl/tk 8.3 and not a depends on >= 8.3
so we have 8.4, and --forced the install of the torque
we never experience any problems because of this
finally the BDII (either site or top)
it installs with no problem, the problem arises after you query the
ldap and see wrong or missing information
so, in slc3 you have openldap 2.0, while slc4 you have openldap 2.2
a matter of downgrading from 2.2 to 2.0 is far from being feasible
because a lot of rpm in slc4 depends on that guy
so we recompiled ldap 2.0 in slc4, and included thing like the ldap
lib of 2.2 on that rpm
down to it, 2.2 is backward incompatible with 2.0, the ldapadd of 2.2
is more strict than 2.0, and the way the info plugins are done, you
see errors of ldapadd on the ldap logs because of it.
and that about a little of that story
