= We have updated our container retention policy: timestamped containers will be deleted after 6 months or if there are any security issues

Support Update

  • BNL (BrianL): issue was caused by missing/outdated CRLs; Brian will review the support ticket and create any necessary JIRA tickets for development work
  • GSU (BrianL): investigate SSH certificate issues; turned out to be an expired cert and a bad target post-jump host
  • Lancium (BrianL): discussed OSG ownership of container deployment; facilitated an introduction with Igor
  • SDSC (Mat): the XrdVoms plugin (used in OSG 3.6) is mapping certificates to a different XRootD identity than LCMAPS was. Mat will investigate if XRootD config changes can solve the issue
