I’m using Root 3.10/02 and since the uprade at CERN to CASTOR2 I can’t access my data via a TRFIOFile object. The connection hangs (one job has been waiting for a file for ~24 hours). I can rfcp the files locally fine (including the one thats been staging for the last day), but doing this is really not efficient - I have a few thousand large root files.
Moving to a newer version of root will mean changing version of analysis software and rerunning the jobs used to create the previously mentioned files - eg. starting again.
Is it possible to use the old TRFIOFile implementation with CASTOR2? Have I just missed something? What version of root will access CASTOR2 files?
the latest development release will correctly access files from Castor2. There is currently no intention to backport the Castor 2 changes in the ROOT v3.
