The SRM system srm.target.rug.nl at site RUG-CIT will be decommissioned, because the underlying storage hardware needs to be decommissioned in the near future.

We will therefore switch off our SRM access for all of the VOs we support at Monday July 11th 2016. The only exception to this will be for the VO lofar, for which we will make separate agreements.

This means that if you as a VO have data stored on our SRM this data needs to be removed or copied to a different site.
For VOs which are supported, but currently don't have any data stored, access will be stopped directly.

Here is a list of VOs that are supported, and their status:

No data stored. Access will be disabled today.
astron
chem.biggrid.nl
dans
drihm.eu
esr
euclid-ec.org
pvier
vo.panda.gsi.de

Data stored. Access will be stopped by July 11th. VO managers will be contacted through GGUS tickets.
bbmri.nl
biomed
ildg
lhcb
lsgrid
omegac
vlemed

Non-production VOs, will be shutdown when the SRM is fully stopped. No GGUS tickets will be created.

A reminder will be sent in a month.

Dear site managers,

you get this message because your site supports at least one of the following VOs: 

geohazards.terradue.com
hydrology.terradue.com

For the following VOMS server: 

voms.ba.infn.it

a new certificate from a *new CA* has been installed, so all the services based on VOMS authentication need to be reconfigured with the new parameters available here:  

https://voms.ba.infn.it:8443/voms/geohazards.terradue.com/configuration/configuration.action
https://voms.ba.infn.it:8443/voms/hydrology.terradue.com/configuration/configuration.action

In particular the corresponding .lsc file should look like this: 

~# cat /etc/grid-security/vomsdir/geohazards.terradue.com/voms.ba.infn.it.lsc 
/DC=org/DC=terena/DC=tcs/C=IT/ST=Rome/L=Frascati/O=Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare/CN=voms.ba.infn.it
/C=NL/ST=Noord-Holland/L=Amsterdam/O=TERENA/CN=TERENA eScience SSL CA 3
