Downtime for patching : Jan 9th
- What: Server downtime for pronto cluster & win compute servers
- When: 1/9 9AM until done (may be later 1/9, or extend into 1/10)
We will be taking down all of the ResearchIT computational servers for
patching on Thursday 1/9 at 9AM. We have a number of updates to apply
and are planning for a full day outage, though we may be done sooner.
Please ensure all of your jobs are complete, and have a copy of all
important long-term data on LSS prior to the maintenance. Any jobs
still running at this time will be terminated.
We are upgrading pronto's lustre filesystem at /work (which is
temporary in nature), and there is a risk that data could be lost.
As always - you should keep a copy of important data on LSS.
Several new servers have been added to the pronto cluster and are
available for use (biocrunch9/10 and speedy7/8).
We will be rolling out a new service for self-serve virtual machines in
spring semester. Keep an eye out for further updates as that becomes
ready for use.
