OSG 1.2.4 Release Announcement

OSG Operations and Integration are pleased to announce the release of OSG version 1.2.4. This update affects all CE installations and OSG based installs of XRootd, XRootdFS, Bestman, XRootd-GridFTP, and GridFTP, GUMS, and VOMS.

This update adds a RSV probe to monitor the status of Gratia probes as well as the ability to specify which ReSS, BDII, or Gratia servers a CE should send information to. Other changes include support for configuring standalone instances of several storage components (xrootd, xrootdfs, bestman, xrootd-gridftp, and gridftp). This allows configure-osg to be used to configure these components.

Sites not planning on using the RSV gratia probes or not interested in configuring the storage components mentioned above can skip this update.

The following packages have been updated:

* osg-config
* osg-version
* Xrootd
* XrootdFS
* Xrootd-GridFTP
* Tomcat
* VOMS Admin
* EDG-Make-Gridmap

The following packages have been added to the production cache:
