Upgrade to EMI-2

Start of EMI 1 decommissioning campaign on 04-03-2013

EMI 1 software will reach end of security updates and support on 30-04-2013 (http://www.eu-emi.eu/releases#MajRel).

In compliance to the EGI Service Operations Security Policy (https://documents.egi.eu/document/669) [1], unsupported software SHOULD be decommissioned before its End of Security Updates and Support, and MUST be retired no later than 1 month after its End of Security Updates and Support. After this date, if a critical vulnerability were to emerge in the software, EGI CSIRT can request the service to be turned off immediately [2].

Because of this, as of March 04 2013, Resource Centre Administrators will start getting alerts about EMI 1 products deployed in their site. Please check the list of your affected service end-points on the Operations Dashboard of your site: https://operations-portal.egi.eu/dashboard.

Purpose of these alarms is to:

  1. pro-actively alert administrators about the need to upgrade EMI-1 services before they reach end of security updates and support;
  2. collect information about decommissioning/upgrade plans of the affected products.

IMPORTANT. According to the EGI decommissioning policy [2], the decommissioning deadline expires one month after the end of security updates and support of the software. For EMI 1 products this is: 31-05-2013 [3].

EMI 1 software versions are in general detected through nagios tests, which query the information discovery system (BDII), on whose accuracy they depend on. On March 04 2013 alarms will be generated for the following service types (additional service types will get alarms after March 04 as soon as more tests are ready):

  • ARC-CE (test: eu.egi.sec.ARC-EMI-1)
  • CREAM-CE (test: eu.egi.sec.EMI-1)
  • LB (test: eu.egi.sec.LB-EMI-1)
  • MyProxy (eu.egi.sec.EMI-1)
  • Site-BDII (test: eu.egi.sec.Site-BDII-EMI-1)
  • SRM (test: eu.egi.sec.dCache-EMI-1)
  • SRM (test: eu.egi.sec.StoRM-EMI-1)
  • Top-BDII (test: eu.egi.sec.Top-BDII-EMI-1)
  • WMS (test: eu.egi.sec.EMI-1)

Tickets for the middleware update

Tickets will need to be raised against sites by ROD teams to inquire sites about their upgrade plans. A template for these tickets can be found at: https://wiki.egi.eu/wiki/ROD_MW_alarm_template#EMI_1_retirment_campaign

For these tickets the special escalation procedure will be applied which is described at: https://wiki.egi.eu/wiki/PROC01#Escalation_for_operational_problem_with_unsupported_MW_at_site.C2.A0
