SE-posix SAM test (the trial run)

Here is a summary of a set of grid jobs that I ran yesterday to test posix access to site SEs. The job will eventually become the SAM test for this type of storage access. In summary it lcg-cr's a small test file to the SE, then reads it back again using a GFAL client, checks for consistency and then deletes the file using lcg-del.

srm.epcc.ed.ac.uk Passed
svr018.gla.scotgrid.ac.uk Passed

fal-pygrid-20.lancs.ac.uk Failed
lcgse1.shef.ac.uk Passed

epgse1.ph.bham.ac.uk Passed
serv02.hep.phy.cam.ac.uk Passed
t2se01.physics.ox.ac.uk Passed
lcgse01.phy.bris.ac.uk Passed

gfe02.hep.ph.ic.ac.uk Failed (both IC-HEP and LeSC)
se01.esc.qmul.ac.uk Passed
dgc-grid-34.brunel.ac.uk Passed
se1.pp.rhul.ac.uk Passed
gw-3.ccc.ucl.ac.uk Passed

For the sites that are not listed, the jobs that I submitted either still claim to be running or are scheduled (it turns out that both Durham and RAL-PPD are in downtime). I've tested RAL before and it was failing due to problems with CASTOR.

IC-HEP failed due to there being no route to host during the GFAL read. Possibly the relevant ports are not open in the firewall (22125 for dcap and 22128 for gsidcap)?

IC-LeSC failed with a Connection timed out error during the GFAL read.

Lancaster failed as the file could not even be lcg-cr'd to the SE. There was a no such file or directory error.

I'll run the tests next week once people have had a chance to look at some of these issues.
