GOC Services Update - Tuesday, March 26th at 13:00 UTC

The GOC will upgrade the following services beginning Tuesday, March 26th, 2013 at 14:00 UTC. The GOC reserves 8 hours (13:00 - 21:00 UTC) in the unlikely event that unexpected problems are encountered.  We encourage users to test affected services before the production release.

* Updating osg-measurements-metrics-db/web to version 1.1-10
* Updating graphtool to version 0.6.6-16
* Installing gratia-bdii-probe ( bdii_cese_record component only)
* Installing new GOC soft-backup script

OIM 3.14 (Tentative)
* Allow VO contacts to edit VO sponsors
* Allow user to specify sponsor while submitting user certificate request
* Splitting sponsor from RA contact types.

* Adding http to https forwarding

All Services
* There will be OS updates; reboots will be required.  Downtime should be minimal, and the usual high-availability mechanisms will be used to reduce service downtime even further and eliminate it in most cases.  However, services may experience degraded performance, and the services without HA mechanisms (OIM and Twiki) will still experience brief downtimes.
