GOC Service Update - Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013 at 13:00 UTC

The GOC will upgrade the following services beginning Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013 at 13:00 UTC. The GOC reserves 8 hours in the unlikely event that unexpected problems are encountered.  We encourage users to test affected services before the production release.

MyOSG 2.13

* Added check for empty contact list for Resource Summary XML which was generating PHP notice alerts.
* Update email addresses for OSG mesh configs (full and VOs) to OSG GOC staff.


Updating osg-measurements-metrics-web/db version from 1.2-5 to 1.2-8

1.2-6 Release Notes

1) config/GratiaWeb: in response to GratiaWeb-34 change request (exit 0 changed to 'exit $?')
2) osg-mesurements-metrics-web.spec: corrected a program 'requirements' line to include python-simplejson'
3) setup/setup_Web.cfg: modified a program 'requirements' line to include 'python-simplejson'
4) src/gratia/web/__init__.py: in response to GratiaWeb-35 change request in reference ('^Batch$')

1.2-7 Release notes

This version contains changes responding to GratiaWeb-39 'Disable Monitoring Pages'. The primary files impacted by these changes are: src/gratia/web/__init__.py and src/gratia/web/navigate.py.
Additional file changes are those needed to modify version-release information 'setup/*.cfg' and the associated '*-db.spec' and '*-web.spec' files.

1.2-8 Release Notes

This version contains changes responding to resolve GratiaWeb-38 'Disable Authentication Warnings': these changes were achieved by commenting out /src/gratia/templates files: bysite.tmpl, byvo.tmpl, main.tmpl in the
initial 'is_authenticated' section.

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.  Updates include, but are not limited to:
* [RHSA-2013:1050-01] Critical: php53 security update
* [RHSA-2013:1049-01] Critical: php security update
* [RHSA-2013:1034-01] Low: kernel security and bug fix update
* [RHSA-2013:1014-01] Important: java-1.6.0-openjdk security update
* [RHSA-2013:0963-01] Critical: java-1.7.0-oracle security update
* [RHSA-2013:0958-01] Important: java-1.7.0-openjdk security update
* [RHSA-2013:0957-01] Critical: java-1.7.0-openjdk security update
