There was a break in network connectivity to the RAL Tier1 for about an hour this morning. The break lasted between 11:15 and 12:15 local time (10:15 to 11:15 UTC). Connectivity has now been restored and we are checking services.
Dear all, 

EUGridPMA have announced a new set of CA rpms. Based on this IGTF release a new set of CA RPMs have been packaged for EGI. 

Please upgrade until 2017.08.07 at your earliest convenience. When this timeout is over, SAM will throw critical errors on CA tests if old CAs are still detected. 

Please check https://wiki.egi.eu/wiki/EGI_IGTF_Release for more details

Dear VO managers,
The following services, hosted by wms01.begrid.be, will be put in downtime on the 3rd of July :
- WMS
- LB
These services will be removed directly after the downtime.
Regards, St.
Dear EGI users,

the gLite WMS service has been in best effort support since more than one year, and only for security fixes. As a consequence of the limited support effort available, together with the WMS developers, EGI Operations is proposing the following decommissioning plan:

•	WMS will be decommissioned by the end of 2017
•	After the end of the year all WMS instances will be removed from production.

As  alternative workload management system, EGI can provide support for migrating to the DIRAC service, a tool that provides features very similar to the WMS ones.

 If you are still using the WMS for your daily activities, please contact your VO managers in order to get in contact with EGI Operations: together the DIRAC supporters, we can set-up a server for your VO to start testing the new tool and provide support for the migration.

 We would encourage the VOs using WMS to coordinate with their users and contact EGI Operations as soon as possible, to plan the transition to other workload management system such as DIRAC, and not be unprepared when the WMS server are switched off. So please contact us per time in order to agree the transition to the new solutions.

Best reagrds,
EGI Operations
Dear site administrators, NGIs, ROCs, 

Cristina has announced yesterday on the EMI mailing lists [*]that the EMI repositories will be shut down on the 15th of June 2017. 

As previously advised by EGI Operations through different channels (broadcasts, EGI Operations meetings, OMB), EGI RCs are asked to switch to an alternative, as the EMI software is highly outdated or unsupported. 

Whatever still maintained or still used by EGI sites from EMI3 has been migrated already long time ago on the Preview repository https://wiki.egi.eu/wiki/Preview_Repository and properly updated by EGI Operations so far. Also a "third party repository" https://appdb.egi.eu/store/software/third.party.distribution has been set, containing a selection of software not distributed through UMD and managed by third party providers.  

The UMD distribution (versions 3 and 4) contains software that goes through a quality verification process performed by the UMD team for each product of each release, hence representing in general a better alternative than Preview and advised by EGI Operations.

RCs still using EMI are invited to switch to supported repositories to benefit from security and feature updates for their installed middleware. 

Please refer to http://repository.egi.eu/ for further information, or contact directly operations@egi.eu to get direct support. 

Thanks
 Vincenzo - EGI Operations

Dear EMI fans,

as you already know the EMI project finished on April 2013 and the last update pushed to its repositories happened on Nov. 2015.
Since then the effort concentrated in providing support to EGI Operations & Release teams to setup an equivalent repository where updates received from PTs could be pushed before their Staged-Rollout and release in official UMD repositories.

This EGI Community repository, UMD-preview [1], was announced on 23.02.2016 [2] as a mirror of EMI3 repository and since then was constantly updated with newer version of all the components part of UMD.

Therefore it is now the time to completly close any access to EMI repositories, and also to EMI documentation, since long time obsoleted. All repositories (packages and documentation) will be closed starting 15th of June 2017.

All sites are warmly adviced, if not done until now, to point your nodes to UMD repositories [3], production, testing or untested ones, or to UMD-preview mentioned above.

All the Best,
Cristina
