On the morning August 28th, 2013 we will briefly disrupt the GPFS filesystem to reboot servers. This is necessary to upgrade the GPFS system. The in-place upgrade should only briefly interrupt service to the GPFS filesystem, and the outage should only last a few minutes. Running jobs should pause until the system returns to service.
Please contact OSC Help if you experience any problems.
Over the past two weeks we have experienced Oakely login node crashes potentially caused by a Lustre bug.
