Nearly there

The new CASTOR information provider is nearly back, the host is finally back up, but given that it's somewhat late in the day we better not switch the information system back till tomorrow. (We are currently running CIP 1.X, without nearline accounting.)

Meanwhile we will of course work on a resilienter infrastructure. We also did that before, it's just that the machine died before we could complete the resilientification.

We do apologise for the inconvenience caused by this incredibly exploding information provider host. I don't know exactly what happened to it, but given that it took a skilled admin nearly three days to get it back, it must have toasted itself fairly thoroughly.

While we're on the subject, a new release is under way for the other CASTOR sites - the current one has a few RAL-isms inside, to get it out before the deadline.

When this is done, work can start on GLUE 2.0. Hey ho.
