Migration to Scientific Linux 3

Updated : 11 February 2005

Computing services migration to Scientific Linux 3

The Red Hat Linux 7.2 platform provided by the CC-IN2P3 will move gradually to Scientific Linux 3 until June 1st 2005.

Scientific Linux 3 is already available since November 2004 at CC-IN2P3 under the batch system name "newLINUX" (with the "-l platform=newLINUX" option of BQS commands). The interactive platform is "ccalisl.in2p3.fr".

Migration agenda

- On February 21th 2005, 354 computing nodes (dual processors each) will run Scientific Linux 3. 10 hosts will compose the interactive service.

- For the Batch Queueing System (BQS), Scientific Linux 3 will be known as "LINUX" (the production Linux platform). The "ccali.in2p3.fr" alias will point to SL3 computers.

- The Red Hat Linux 7.2 system will become "oldLINUX". The interactive Red Hat Linux 7.2 service will be renamed into "ccalirh72.in2p3.fr". The number of its hosts will gradually decrease.

- From february 21th 2005, computers under Red Hat 7.2 (around 320 machines) will move to Scientific Linux 3 at the speed of 32 computers per week until April 2005.

- About 30 Red Hat computers will remain until June 1st 2005. A that date, 674 computers will be available under SL3.
