VDT 2.0.0p7 Update

On 2009-07-24, the VDT team announced the release of VDT 2.0.0p7.

Changes to VDT 2.0.0p7

RSV was updated from a release candidate to 3.0.0. There were only two changes in RSV:

  1. RSV will now fetch probes from the production RSV cache, not the testing RSV cache.
  2. Four RSV probes that were causing problems in testing and are not essential to WLCG availability calculations have been disabled by default. To be precise, these are:
    • cacert-verify-supported-vo-probe
    • classad-valid-probe
    • gums-authorization-validator-probe
    • voms-handshake-verify-probe

Updating to VDT 2.0.0p7

If you installed VDT 2.0.0 after VDT 2.0.0p7 was released on 2009-07-24, you do not need to do any of these update operations because you will have 2.0.0p7.

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.
