Summary of changes

This release of IGTF CA Certificate bundle matches the changes made in the OSG CA Certificate bundle yesterday.

This release contains:

CA Certificates based on IGTF 1.104

  • Reinstated AddTrust External CA Root in parallel with Comodo RSA CA. This fixes failures that occur when RHEL6 clients with the IGTF 1.103 bundle attempt to authenticate with servers using InCommon IGTF host certs. Affected clients and servers are encouraged to upgrade.

These JIRA tickets were addressed in this release.


The Worker node containers have been updated to this release.

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


  • 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.
