All ACLs set within the Home Directory filesystem (/nfs/##) were lost during the 6/7 downtime. This was caused by the migration to a new server that does not support the old POSIX ACLs.
Migrating the ACLs was not possible due to both the fact POSIX ACLs are not easily translatable to NFSv4 ACLs, and none of our tools supported such a migration.
Q-Chem 4.4 has been installed on Oakley. To load, use
module load qchem/4.4
