DQ2 1.0 Upgrade

The official instruction for how to install new DQ2 is found at http://ddm-build.cern.ch/ddm/build/stable/doc/guides/dq2-siteservices/html/admin/installSection.html
You need to pay attention from Sec 2.8
Some possiblly useful hints.
  • 1. At first, backup your configuration (NOTE: Configuration has changed. It is now only one file. But, it is convenient to look it up.)
      cd /opt/dq2/ 
      cp -a etc /some-backup-place
Then, you can skip the first part of Sec 2.8.
  • 2. Make sure /etc/apt/sources.list.d/dq2.list and /etc/apt/_ preferences are correct. (Mine was not the same.)
  • 3. follow example 9 and 10.
  • 4. Change the permission of files in /opt/dashboard/bin/ to be world executable:
     chmod 755 _/opt/dashboard/bin/_* 
(NOTE: I am talking to Ricardo to fix it)
  • 5. Change/edit the configuration as shown in the instruction. Make sure to read example 18 for spacetoken area. (Look up old configuration if necessary.)
    • Make sure to add your LRC entry under [dq2-info] (Look at your old configuration if you have), it should look like
      • catalog_SITENAME=mysql://USERNAME:PASSWORD@LRC:3306/localreplicas
      • make sure it is writable account to your LRC (which is usually different from the content from ToA? )
  • 6. Also, callback area is not correct. It should be
      provider = http://dashb-atlas-data-prod-ext.cern.ch:80/dashboard/request.py
instead of
      provider = http://dashb-atlas-data.cern.ch/dashboard/request.py

  • 7. Also, DQ2 central catalog is incorrect
    change atlssddmcat.cern.ch to atlddmcat.cern.ch

That is about it. If you have a question, please let me know. I am in IM as you know. There is a chat room open - "dq2upgrade" on AIM
