ECDF Update

The procurement of our grid front end nodes for ECDF has been held up for about 2 weeks. Sam had tried to setup one of the old Edinburgh worker nodes as a trial CE to iron out any glitches in the gatekeeper scripts, job manager, accounting chain, but has hit an ACL in some router between ECDF and KB which prevents him from being able to even qsub.

The systems team are going to give him a requisitioned worker node to test with instead, which should happen this week - although as they are going live today and it's holiday time this has also been somewhat held up.
