Release Date: 2018-10-25

Summary of changes

This release contains:

  • Added workaround to the OSG worker node tarball client to avoid TLS failures with GFAL
  • Updated to XRootD 4.8.5 - Bug fix release
  • Released osg-flock package for easier installation of OSG submit hosts
  • Improved StashCache packaging with better default configuration
  • Released autopyfactory 2.4.9 which is currently in use at CERN

These JIRA tickets were addressed in this release.

Notes

  • OSG 3.4 contains only 64-bit components.
  • StashCache is supported on EL7 only.
  • xrootd-lcmaps will remain at 1.2.1-2 on EL6.

Detailed changes are below. All of the documentation can be found here.

Known Issues

Due to the central RSV service retirement (see this document for details), the new version of RSV will disable the gratia-consumer component that reports to the central service. Please update all RSV packages by running the following command on your RSV host:

[email protected] # yum update rsv\*

Additionally, if you are using osg-configure, please edit /etc/osg/config.d/30-rsv.ini and set the following:

enable_gratia = False

Updating to the new release

To update to the OSG 3.4 series, please consult the page on updating between release series.

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.
