VDT 2.0.0p17 Update

On 2010-06-09, the VDT team announced the release of VDT 2.0.0p17.

Changes to VDT 2.0.0p17

  1. Xrootd changes:
    • Released a new version of Xrootd containing a patch from US ATLAS that will pick the correct oss.cache partition when multiple partitions are specified.
    • Additionally, there were many changes to the configuration of Xrootd. The man page for the new configure_xrootd script is available here.
  2. Updated Bestman, SRM-Client-LBNL, and SRM-Tester-LBNL to 2.2.1.3.13 (VDT Ticket 6842)
  3. Updated MyProxy and GSIOpenSSH to version 5.1 (VDT Ticket 6140)
  4. Updated Apache to fix a minor security vulnerability (VDT Ticket 6856)
  5. Added a new keyword - 'itb' - for the vdt-ca-manage script. This will install certificates from the new ITB certificate distribution to be used for testing.

Updating to VDT 2.0.0p17

If you installed VDT 2.0.0 after VDT 2.0.0p17 was released on 2010-06-09, you do not need to do any of these update operations because you will have 2.0.0p17.

Recommended method: VDT Updater

We strongly encourage users to update the VDT using the VDT updater script: VDT Updater Instructions

Not recommended: Pacman update

If you really want to do it the hard way, instructions for updating by using Pacman directly are available on another page. This method is hard to follow and error prone.
