Globus 5.2 Issues and temporary workaround

due to backward incompatible changes present in the latest versions of some Globus 5.2 packages, distributed through EPEL 5 repositories, EMI services can have problems if the nodes running these services are configured to receive automatic updates or on fresh installations.

As a fast workaround, until the issues are solved on IGE/EPEL side, the Globus 5.0.3 packages are now temporary available through the EMI third-party repository.

Sites that have automatic updates enabled and have observed problems in services due to the Globus ugrade should downgrade the globus-* packages by doing:

# yum clean all
# yum downgrade globus\*

EMI DPM and StoRM-GridFTP-Server are, as of today, the EMI Services known to have problems with the Globus upgrade.

After downgrading the packages, restart the services. Also the gridftp server instances need to be restarted using the following commands:

  • EMI Disk Pool Manager (DPM)
# /etc/init.d/dpm-gsiftp restart
 # service storm-globus-gridftp restart
