Upgraded login nodes on Glenn
We have added two login nodes to Glenn (opt-login05 and opt-login06), which are quad-socket computers with 64 GB of RAM. These were previously used as large memory nodes on Glenn, and will provide greater resources to the shared environment on the login nodes.
Operating system upgrade
The operating systems on Glenn and Oakley have been updated. Glenn is now Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.10, and Oakley is Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5.
ANSYS and ABAQUS module changes
The ANSYS and ABAQUS modules on Glenn and Oakley have been modified to allow all users to select the base module instead of special modules, which was previously required for licensing purposes. For example, if you wish to use ANSYS 14 on Oakley, all users should load the ansys/14 module (not 14-com or 14-nimbis), and they will automatically be pointed at the correct license server.
