Summary of changes

This release contains:

This release fixes important security vulnerabilities. Please update as soon as possible.

These JIRA tickets were addressed in this release.


The Frontier Squid container is available and has been tagged as stable in accordance with our Container Release Policy


This section describes important upgrade notes and/or caveats for packages available in the OSG release repositories. Detailed changes are below. All of the documentation can be found here.

  • OSG 3.4 contains only 64-bit components.
  • The StashCache service is only supported on EL7


  1. GlideinWMS 3.4.6 is the last release supporting Globus GRAM (a.k.a. GT2/GT5).

  2. For new Singularity features introduced in GlideinWMS 3.4.1, all factories and frontends need to be >= 3.4.1.


    OSG GlideinWMS factories are running at least 3.4.1

    If some of the connected Factories are <= 3.4.1 you will see an error during reconfig/upgrade if you try to use features that require a newer Factory. To start using Singularity via GlideinWMS, see:

  3. Upgrades from <= 3.4.0 may require merging /etc/condor/config.d/*.rpmnew files and restarting HTCondor.

  4. GlideinWMS >= 3.4.5 uses shared port, requiring only port 9618. To ease the transition to shared port, the User Collector, secondary collectors, and CCBs support both shared and separate, individual ports. To start using shared port, change the secondary collectors lines and the CCBs lines (if any) in /etc/gwms-frontend/frontend.xml, changing the address to include the shared port sinful string:

    <collector DN="/DC=org/DC=opensciencegrid/O=Open Science Grid/OU=Services/CN=gwms-frontend.domain" group="default" node="gwms-frontend.domain:9618?sock=collector0-40" secondary="True"/>

    Replace gwms-frontend-domain above with the hostname of your GlideinWMS frontend. See the GlideinWMS documentation for details.

Known Issues

OSG System Profiler verifies all installed packages, which may result in excessively long run times.

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.
