I have finally fixed the problem where the BDII was refusing to publish the VO view for biomed on UKI-SCOTGRID-GLASGOW. This had been going on since the cluster was reconfigured. At this time the biomed torque queue was renamed biom (I'm sure I had a good reason for doing this, although I now cannot recall it...), which somehow was causing the dynamic scheduler wrapper to fail to publish for the biomed queue. I had manually hacked LDIF files, rerun YAIM, etc., etc., without success.

This afternoon I just renamed the biomed queue biomed, redefined the queue in site-info.def and reran YAIM's config_gip - finally, the information system started to do the right thing.

How annoying that I wasn't able to really understand the problem.
