On November 13 and 14, workshops for OSG site administrators will be held at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. The emphasis will be upon site admininstration topics rather than end-user training, and geared towards installing and maintaining such a site. OSG experts will deliver the talks and conduct the practical tutorials during this-day event.

Work sessions to include:

         o OSG fundamentals, including installing and validating an OSG CE (getting on the OSG)
          o Deploying a Bestman SE (Bestman-Gateway)
          o Deploying a dCache SE
          o Installing an xrootd filesystem on your cluster
          o Redundant ("HA") OSG services: GUMS example
          o Network performance tuning and monitoring
          o Integrating Nagios and RSV as a site-level alarm service
          o Getting the most out of GIP
          o Securing your environment: best practices, tools, checklists, expectations, state of the art security stuff (for site administrators)
          o Troubleshooting

Preparations will be tutorial-like; other technical materials to be prepared in advance by session leaders. Site admins should prepare resources in advance including host certificates, etc.
