Sheffield Jully looking back

July had to point of outage the worst being at the start of the month and just after a gLite 3.0 upgrade it did take a bit of time to find the problem and the solution.

Error message: /opt/glue/schema/ldap/Glue-CORE.schema: No such file or directory
ldap_bind: Can't contact LDAP server
Solution was found here:

At the end of the month we has a strange error that was spotted quickly and turn out to be the result of a DNS server crash on the LGC here at Sheffield not resolving the worker nodes IPs

Sheffield hosted the monthly North grid meeting and all in all it was a good event.

Yesterday the LCG got it's own dedicated 1gig link to YHman and beyond we also now have our own firewall which will make changes quicker and easier.
