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.
3:10PM 4/18/2017 Update: Rolling reboots on Owens have started to address GPFS errors occured late Friday.
