STEP09 Problems found with CRAB server


CRAB_2_5_1 unable to submit new ntuple making jobs in CMSSW_2_2_10. I do not know what is the cause of this problem but it is in my mind typical of the way CRAB spontaniously fails to work with some external change or another. It is apparently a known problem. Advise for the time being to use 2_6_0_pre3 +.

in addition this is a bug already discussed (see also savannah #50798)
and fixed. It will be available in the next release (2_6_0). Actually
you can try the 2_6_0_pre3 ( ) note it'a just a pre release.. so could
be not stable.




DESIRED_gatekeepers is empty

I tried to submit a job with a crab config using dataset=None because the job needs no input dataset. It is a job to make MC events. Typically with such a job, a user would (and I did) specify a CE and SE whitelist to send the job to a specific site (in my case for testing, in usual case for making and storing MC at a local site).

The result of this is the job staying in status=submitted and never being able to run because DESIRED_gatekeepers is empty.
