Release Notes

Changes from 2.0.0p0 to 2.0.0p1

  1. Added the Network Path and Application Diagnosis (NPAD) Client. The NPAD server will be added in a future patch. (VDT ticket 4400)
  2. There is now a configuration script for MyProxy that does basic configuration. It doesn't do quite everything yet, but another update in the near future will complete it. At this point, MyProxy can be controlled by vdt-control.
  3. Improved the vdt-postinstall script. Added more command line options, output and debugging. (VDT ticket 5397)
  4. Fixed some minor warnings in our configure scripts. (VDT ticket 2847)

Full 2.0.0p1 release notes

Changes from 2.0.0p1 to 2.0.0p2

  1. Updated glexec to 0.5.36 to address a security issue.
  2. Fixed spurious warnings in vdt-post-install when there are no post-install steps.
  3. The VDT Updater is more forgiving when validating user input, and allows you to try again after a mistake instead of just quitting.

Full 2.0.0p2 release notes

Changes from 2.0.0p2 to 2.0.0p3

  1. Fixed a bug that prevented configuration of OSG-RSV (VDT ticket 5390)
  2. Updated GIP from 1.1.1 to 1.1.2. (VDT ticket 5438)
  3. Updated Bestman, SRM-Client-LBNL, and SRM-Tester-LBNL to to fix many bugs. (VDT ticket 5449)
  4. Updated GUMS-Service and GUMS-Client to 1.3.15 to fix bugs (VDT ticket 5450)
  5. Extended the VDT-Client package (which is the basis for the OSG client package) and the OSG-CE package so that they include the clients for NDT, NPAD, BWCTL, and OWAMP. These are network diagnostic tools that were added in VDT 2.0.0p0 (the initial release). They were requested by ATLAS, and it is desired that they are widely available so that when they are network problems, tools that can help the diagnosis are readily available. (VDT ticket 4400)
  6. The BWCTL and OWAMP packages now set the MANPATH in the environment so their man pages can be found.
  7. Updated the VDT System Profiler to include some OSG configuration and installation information.
  8. The osg-supported-vo-list.txt now uses the lower case name (instead of the mixed case name) and is sorted alphabetically, as suggested by John Weigand. (VDT ticket 5437)
  9. The VDT updater prints a small note into the vdt-install.log, so it is clear what changes were caused by the VDT updater.
  10. The vdt-ca-manage usage statement and POD have been updated to be more consistent with other documentation. (VDT ticket 5446)

Full 2.0.0p3 release notes

Changes from 2.0.0p3 to 2.0.0p4

  1. Updated OSG-RSV to 3.0-rc-6.
    • This is a large update that should fix many of the probe and setup problems that have been seen on ITB sites.
    • Added the Subversion package, which is now a requirement for OSG-RSV.
  2. Tomcat fixes:
    • Improved Tomcat's init script to not cache DNS hostname/IP pairs forever, but only for five minutes. This means that Tomcat does not need to be restarted to help Cemon or GUMS find servers when their IP addresses change. (For example, GUMS used to need restarting when a VOMS server would change.) (VDT ticket 4646)
    • Fixed a minor error in Tomcat's init script (ITB ticket 58)
  3. Fixed a problem with Bestman's installation which caused a failure if a certificate was not found at install time.
  4. Fixed VDT-Logrotate to not lose configuration during updates. (VDT ticket 5170)
  5. Improved the OSG-Site-Web-Page scripts, and renamed them. (VDT ticket 5447)
  6. Added a --gums-host command line option to configure_gums (VDT ticket 5481)
  7. Set LFC tools to unsupported on SuSE-9/ia64. (This won't be visible to most end-users.)
  8. Improved the output of the VDT system profiler

Full 2.0.0p4 release notes

Changes from 2.0.0p4 to 2.0.0p5

  1. Updated UberFTP to 2.4 UberFTP Release Notes (VDT ticket 5128)
  2. Updated XrootdFS (VDT ticket 5493)
  3. Updated gums-host-cron (by updating to GUMS 1.3.16) and edg-mkgridmap: they no longer require osg-attributes.conf to be present in order to generate the osg-vo-map, and they now know about the new location for files in the osg directory instead of the monitoring directory. (VDT ticket 5462)
  4. Updated Bestman and SRM-Client-LBNL from to This is a bug fix release. (VDT ticket 5503)
  5. Upgraded Condor and Condor Cron from 7.2.3 to 7.2.4. This addresses a bug that particularly affected OSG installations at Brookhaven. Condor 7.2.4 Release Notes (VDT ticket 5504)
  6. Upgraded the Gratia probes from 1.02.1-5 to 1.04-1. Among other changes, they added the ability to bundle multiple Gratia records into a single push to the Gratia collector. The configuration file format was also tweaked. (VDT ticket 5501)
  7. Upgraded Gratia Services/Reporting to 1.04.3 (VDT ticket 5186)
  8. Upgraded the OSG Matchmaker from 0.5 to 0.7. Also fixed a bug that prevented it from being installed. 0.7 release notes (VDT ticket 5514)
  9. Upgraded the Generic Information Provider from 1.1.2 to 1.1.3. This fixes a few minor bugs. (VDT ticket 5515)
  10. Condor and Condor-Cron avoid using /tmp for lock files is possible. This reduces the disk of the lock file being deleted by an automated system like tmpwatch. On root installs the subdirectory "condor-lock" or "condor-cron-lock" in /var/lock or /var/run will be preferred. For non-root installs, a the Condor or Condor-Cron log directory will be used if it appears to be a local filesystem.. (VDT ticket 5497) (VDT ticket 5480)
  11. Changed the Fetch-CRL cron job to run every 6 hours, instead of every 24 (VDT ticket 4140)
    For information on configuring Fetch-CRL, see here.
  12. Changed OSG-RSV configuration to prevent possible errors during installation.
