DOEGrids Services Outage - Update - GOC Ticket # 10187

OSG Operations has been informed the DOEGrid CA Services will remain offline for an unspecified period of time, this is likely to last through the weekend of April 2nd and 3rd. During this time all requests for new certificates and certificate renewals will not be processed by DOEGrids. We will alert you on Monday April 4th how users can obtain new certificates or renew their existing certificates. We are currently working to find a back up service.

This downtime will NOT affect the grid access for the users who already have unexpired certificates. OSG Resources will continue providing access and working as usual. Resources will NOT experience any critical RSV failures due to this down time (because the CA certificate and CRL files are still available). We will continue updating you as the situation develops. If the downtime continues over 72 hours, sites may experience a NON-CRITICAL failure of RSV probes. We will inform you promptly if that happens.
