We will have rolling reboots of Owens and Pitzer, starting from Tuesday, Jan 22, 2019. The rolling reboots won't affect any running jobs, but users may experience longer queue wait time than usual on these two clusters. Highlights of the rolling reboots activities include:

  • Upgrade from RHEL 7.4 to RHEL 7.5 (some packages are excluded) 
  • Upgrade MOFED from 4.3 to 4.4
  • Upgrade GPFS from 4.2.3-6 to 4.2.3-12
