OSG 3.6 News

Upcoming OSG 3.6 end-of-support dates

OSG 3.6 reaches the "End of Regular Support" on March 31, 2024 and will only receive critical bug-fix and security updates until its end-of-life on June 30, 2024. See our Release Series documentation for more details.

Note that the OSG 3.6 end-of-life coincides with the wider Enterprise Linux 7 end-of-life. We recommend upgrading to OSG 23 and an Enteprise Linux 9 distribution at your earliest convenience.

Supported OS Versions: EL7, EL8, EL9

The OSG 3.6 release series is a major overhaul of the OSG software stack compared to previous release series with changes to core protocols used for authentication and data transfer: bearer tokens, such as SciTokens or WLCG tokens, are used for authentication instead of GSI proxies and HTTP is used for data transfer instead of GridFTP.

To support these new protocols, OSG 3.6 includes HTCondor 9.0, HTCondor-CE 5, GlideinWMS 3.9, and XRootD 5.4. We also dropped support for the GridFTP, GSI authentication, and Hadoop.

Known Issues

The following issues are known to currently affect packages distributed in OSG 3.6:

Preparing for HTCondor 10.0

We have released HTCondor version 10.0 into the OSG repositories.


The condor-upgrade-checks RPM version 10.0.5 works with existing HTCondor 9.0.x installations. It can be installed with either HTCondor version 9 or 10.

HTCondor-CE and HTCondor pool administrators should install the condor-upgrade-checks RPM and run the condor_upgrade_check script to check for actions that need to be taken before upgrading to HTCondor version 10. This script checks for three possible issues:

  • HTCondor upgrade causing a change in TRUST_DOMAIN which would invalidate existing IDTOKENS
  • Recent and current GPU jobs that will no longer match, because the new require_gpus condor_submit command must be used for GPU matching
  • HTCondor map files that have regular expressions that the new PCRE2 library will not accept

To check your Access Point configuration run:

root@access-point # condor_upgrade_check

To check your Compute Entrypoint configuration run:

root@htcondor-ce # condor_upgrade_check -ce


Don't forget to check to HTCondor batch system as well

For more information, consult the HTCondor documentation

CA Certificates on EL9

EL9 operating systems have a tighter default cryptographic policy that can cause services to reject certificates issued by SHA-1 signed CAs. Some CAs in the igtf-ca-certs and osg-ca-certs packages are affected and you may see service issues if your server certificate or certificates presented by clients are issued by these CAs. The Software Team is investigating solutions but in the meantime, we recommend running the following command on XRootD hosts to accept certificates issued by SHA-1 signed CAs:

root@host # update-crypto-policies --set DEFAULT:SHA1

Do I need to run this on my Compute Entrypoint (CE) hosts?

No. At this time, the Software Team believes that CE hosts are unaffected since their clients only present tokens and token issuers present modern CAs.


To improve support for Python 3 based GlideinWMS in EL7, the EL7 OSG Yum repositories contain a newer version of rrdtool than the operating system repositories. This may cause dependency solving issues with non-OSG packages. Therefore, on EL7 hosts that are not running GlideinWMS, we suggest adding the following line under the [osg] section of /etc/yum.repos.d/osg.repo:

March 30, 2023: EL9 and Gratia Probe 2.8.4 (all operating systems)

No tarball client updates

This release does not contain any tarball client updates for EL7 or EL8. Initial EL9 tarballs will be released at a later date.

  • Critical Gratia Probe 2.8.4 update for HTCondor APs for all operating systems, fixing issues with gratia-probe-condor-ap 2.8.1 through 2.8.3. If you have any of these versions, please update and perform the following steps to process

    # By default, this will bring you to /var/lib/condor-ce/gratia/data/
    root@host # cd $(condor_config_val PER_JOB_HISTORY_DIR)
    root@host # mv quarantine/history* .

    Too many files for mv

    If you have a busy AP, you may encounter too many files in the quarantine directory to move all at once. In this case, we suggest moving the history files to the data directory in batches. The Gratia Probe will handle history files in the data directory in bundles so you do not need to wait for processing to complete before moving the next batch over.

  • This is the initial release of OSG Software Stack for EL9! Notable differences between EL9 and EL7/EL8 include:

    • Frontier Squid 5.8-2.1

      If you've already installed frontier-squid-5.8-1.1 on an EL9 host...

      You will need to uninstall frontier-squid and remove /etc/init.d. If you have any other packages that have files in /etc/init.d, they may also need to be reinstalled and cleaned up in a similar fashion.

    • HTCondor 10.3.0: see upstream documentation for manual update steps.

    • HTCondor-CE 6.0.0: see upstream documentation for manual update steps.
    • Missing packages to be released at a later date:

February 26, 2021: 3.6 Released

Where are GlideinWMS and XRootD?

XRootD and GlideinWMS are both absent in the initial OSG 3.6 release: we expect major version updates that may require manual intervention for both of these packages so we are holding their initial releases in this series until they are ready.

This initial release of the OSG 3.6 release series is based on the packages available in OSG 3.5.31. One of the major changes in this release series is the shift to token-based authentication from GSI proxy-based authentication. Here is a list of the differences in this initial release:

  • GridFTP, GSI, and Hadoop are no longer available
  • Added packages to support token-based authentication
  • HTCondor 8.9.11: initial token support (8.9.12, which will contain default configuration using tokens, was delayed)
  • HTCondor-CE 5.0.0: support for Python 3
  • Gratia Probe 2.0.0: replace all batch system probes with the non-root HTCondor-CE probe
  • OSG-Configure 4.0.0:
    • Deprecated RSV
    • Dropped unused configuration modules and attributes
    • Reorganized some configuration (see update instructions for more details)

In addition, we have updated our Software Release Policy to follow a rolling release model.

Finally, our Docker image releases will more closely track our OSG 3.6 repositories.
