Liverpool Weekly Update

Most of the work at Liverpool this week was the usual networking and ongoing hardware repairs. We should have some more nodes becoming available (approximately 50) over the next few weeks thanks in particular to the work Dave Muskett has been doing.

We've started to look at configuration deployment systems, i.e. cfengine (Colin's talk at HEPSysMan on this was helpful), Puppet and Quattor. We're presently evaluating Puppet on some of our non-LCG systems, and we look forward to discussing this subject at the next technical meeting.

And as mentioned last week, Paul Trepka is in the process of adding support for additional VOs. A couple of errors were encountered in this process yesterday resulting in failed SAM tests overnight, but these have (hopefully!) been rectified now.
