Stroage news for HEPSYSMAN Nov '12

Today saw a return for me to Lancaster for the latest HEPSYSMAN meeting.  agenda can be found here:


We started with a productive discussion regarding people's experiences with upgrading from gLite to EMI. Good news was that Storage wasn't really mentioned until I did; so it's good that storage problems aren't at the top of people's problem lists..   Issue  regarding auto-update of middleware and updating of YUM is an issue. A large worry seems to be how the dpm-tools appear not to be getting through the ETICS of deployment  ( or this might have been my naive interpretation of a talk.) Something to look into anyway.....
