RHEL5 delay - Impact

First page Back Continue Last page Overview Graphics


  • Assume: will have lots of SLC4 production systems in 2007

    • No reason to wait for SLC5
    • Can roll out SLC4 on all services  plan
    • Need to involve GDB for Grid-wide roll-out coordination
  • SLC4 becomes less urgent, but more important:

    • Already slippage: “end of 2005”  “end of January 06”  “after RHEL4U3”
    • IT isn't the only one being late with SLC4 –
      • 0 (zero) pressure from experiments until now...
    • But: will need to work. SLC4 would be the LHC release
      • No “second chance” to get it right..
