SouthGrid Update

Having installed half of the Oxford cluster at Begbroke last Tuesday. The Air conditioning failed during the night, a valve on the Chillers failed cutting off the water supply to the Chillers which in turn switched themselves off. The room rapidly heated up to >40 degrees. After investigation and repairs the AC went back on and all has been well so far. More automated warning systems are required.

Cambridge have set up space tokens for both ATLASDATADISK and ATLASMCDISK. They have also started upgrading to SL4 (64bit) worker nodes.

Britol completed upgrading the Worker nodes to SL4 on Monday. They had some problems caused by se linux, preventing normal loging but all now appears well.
