SouthGrid Update

Just to update that the rebuild of the Bristol
DPM SE to SL4 on 19th June by Yves & Winnie was a smooth success.

Oxford had a strange error on its site BDII (still running SL3) after a re run of yaim it stopped advertising the site web address and several other entries so gstat had a warning. The following were missing.:
dn: GlueSiteUniqueID=UKI-SOUTHGRID-OX-HEP,mds-vo-name=UKI-SOUTHGRID-OX-HEP,o=g
objectClass: GlueSite
GlueSiteDescription: LCG Site
GlueSiteLocation: Oxford, UK
GlueSiteLatitude: 51.7595
GlueSiteLongitude: -1.2595
GlueSiteSponsor: none
GlueSiteOtherInfo: TIER-2

It transpired that the file /opt/bdii/etc/bdii-update.conf
had the entry GIP pointing to

> GIP file:///opt/glite/libexec/glite-info-wrapper

which did not exist, changing it to

< GIP file:///opt/lcg/libexec/lcg-info-wrapper

and restarting bdii has fixed the missing web address etc problem.

We were about to setup an SL4 based site bdii anyway so Ewan did so and curiously got the same errors, even though the glite 3.1 files do all now exist in the /opt/glite directories.
Investigations continue but for now we are sticking with the working glite 3.0 based site bdii.

PS A thread on LCG-ROLLOUT mentions the same errors:
