StoRM Backend v. 1.11.21

Released on 12.05.2021 with StoRM v. 1.11.21. centos7


This release:

  • fixes the known issue about the upgrade to StoRM v1.11.20 which could break connections with MariaDB;
  • fixes the boot order ensuring that mariadb service is started before StoRM Backend;
  • fixes the failed state shown on stop/restart of the service due to a misunderstood exit code meaning.

We should be able to suppress this by adding the exit code into the unit file as a “success” exit status:

Bug fixes

  • [STOR-1395] - StoRM Backend service enters failed state when stopped
  • [STOR-1397] - Upgrading to StoRM v1.11.20 could break connections with MariaDB
  • [STOR-1401] - Ensure MariaDB is started before StoRM Backend on boot
