VDT 1.10.1e Update
On 2008-07-11, the VDT team announced the release of VDT 1.10.1e.
Upgraded Gratia Services from 0.36.4 to 0.36.9. Note that this is
the local Gratia collector, not the Gratia probes. (VDT ticket 3602)
Improved vdt-update-certs to store configuration across updates, and
added a new configuration option to make it easier to exclude a CA.
For details, see the man page.
(VDT ticket 3616)
Upgraded Bestman, SRM-Client-LBNL, and SRM-Tester-LBNL to 220.127.116.11.a (VDT ticket 3631)
(VDT ticket 3640)
Fixed a bug in the MyProxy server build. We had accidentally built
it as threaded when it should be built as non-threads, and this
could cause runtime problems. (VDT ticket 3580)
Upgraded Generic Information Provider to the 1.0.1 bugfix release (VDT ticket 3647)
Upgraded SRM-Client-Fermi to 1.8.0-15p8 (VDT ticket 3625) (VDT ticket 3658)
dCache has been upgraded to 1.8.0-15.7.
We have improved our configuration of Gratia with MySQL. There is no update available
for this. (VDT ticket 3524)
We are now able to preserve VOMS configuration when upgrading to VOMS Admin 2.0.
VOMS config will be preserved when upgrading from VDT 1.8.1 to 1.10.1. There is
no update available for this.
If you installed VDT 1.10.1 after VDT 1.10.1e was released on
2008-07-11, you do not need to do any of these update operations
because you will have 1.10.1e.
The best way to do the update is to update the individual packages
that have changed. To be clear, we do not
pacman -update without specifying
specific package names. Also note that you only need to update
packages if you installed them. You can see what packages have been
