Known Issues

  • HTCondor 8.4.0 has changed it's behavior in ways that cause the GlideinWMS frontend configuration to break. In order to correct this, the following setting needs to be added to the configuration file:

    COLLECTOR_USES_SHARED_PORT = False
    
  • The new HTCondor-CE View has a bug where some graphs show up blank. This may also manifest in errors like the following in /var/log/condor-ce/GangliadLog:

1/11/16 15:05:54 Failed to execute /usr/share/condor-ce/condor_ce_metric --conf /etc/ganglia/gmond.conf --group HTCondor.Schedd --name SchedulerRecentDaemonCoreDutyCycle --value 1.04449 --type float --units % --slope both --spoof 192.170.227.226:itbv-ce-htcondor.mwt2.org --tmax 120 --dmax 86400: Usage: condor_ce_metric [options]

condor_ce_metric: error: no such option: --conf

01/11/16 15:05:54 Failed to publish metric SchedulerRecentDaemonCoreDutyCycle for itbv-ce-htcondor.mwt2.org

  • Since version 1.14, HTCondor-CE has required condor >= 8.3.7 but this was not reflected in the packaging. If your routed jobs do not have the proper environment set, your version of HTCondor-CE is newer than 1.14, and your version of condor is older than 8.3.7, consider upgrading your version of condor. This will be fixed in the next release.
  • StashCache packages need to be manually configured

    • Manual configuration for origin server
      • Assuming that the origin server connects only to a redirector (not directly to cache server), minimal xrootd configuration is required. The configuration file, /etc/xrootd/xrootd-stashcache-origin-server.cfg, in this release is overkill. Here are recommended settings to use:
        xrd.port 1094
        all.role server
        all.manager stash-redirector.example.com 1213
        all.export / nostage
        xrootd.trace emsg login stall redirect
        ofs.trace none
        xrd.trace conn
        cms.trace all
        sec.protocol  host
        sec.protbind  * none
        all.adminpath /var/run/xrootd
        all.pidpath /var/run/xrootd
        
  • Manual configuration for cache server

    • In contrast to the origin server configuration, one needs to declare pss.origin <stash-redirector.example.com> instead of configuring the cmsd or manager (only the xrootd daemon is required on the cache server). More detailed configuration of cache server for StashCache is here.
  • In both cases, administrator needs to set the path of custom configuration file for its xrootd/cmds instance in /etc/sysconfig/xrootd, For example, change the cmds default from:

    CMSD_DEFAULT_OPTIONS="-l /var/log/xrootd/cmsd.log -c /etc/xrootd/xrootd-clustered.cfg -k fifo"
    


    to

    CMSD_DEFAULT_OPTIONS="-l /var/log/xrootd/cmsd.log -c /etc/xrootd/xrootd-stashcache-origin-server.marian -k fifo"
    

Updating to the new release

Update Repositories

To update to this series, you need to install the current OSG repositories.

Update Software

Once the new repositories are installed, you can update to this new release with:

[email protected] # yum update

Notes

  • Please be aware that running yum update may also update other RPMs. You can exclude packages from being updated using the --exclude=[package-name or glob] option for the yum command.
  • Watch the yum update carefully for any messages about a .rpmnew file being created. That means that a configuration file had been edited, and a new default version was to be installed. In that case, RPM does not overwrite the edited configuration file but instead installs the new version with a .rpmnew extension. You will need to merge any edits that have made into the .rpmnew file and then move the merged version into place (that is, without the .rpmnew extension). Watch especially for /etc/lcmaps.db, which every site is expected to edit.
