  • GridFTP packages are tested but MyProxy packages have not been
  • XRootD 4.9.1 has been released and needs to be promoted to testing

Support Update

  • GLOW (Carl): Sent in the request to UW DoIT for the new VO certificate
  • GlueX (Edgar): Due to some certificate changes at the UConn frontend collector GlueX resources are unavailable to the frontends. They aren't completely dead in the water, though, since they are flocking to the OSG pool.
  • Notre Dame (Derek, Edgar): some extensive network usage going back to Wisconsin so they've banned the GLOW VO. Currently being investigated.
  • UFL (Carl, Derek): We've provided Bockjoo a custom package to fix his missing accounting data from Jan/Feb. There may be some complications because they have a temporary
  • UConn (Mat, Derek): setting up a StashCache origin is getting complicated to fetch from their local dCache. Their XRootD-dCache is reporting to the OSG redirector (Freshdesk 8513)

OSG Investigations Team

  • Moving forward with new SciTokens setup at OSG-Connect. Need to coordinate switchover. Daily poking of osg-connect team. Admittidely, they seem un-motivated. Will motivate with... snacks?
