NFS service disruption 6/29/16

OSC experienced errors with NFS services the morning of June 29 between 08:37 and 09:12 that may have caused some jobs to fail, or other unexpected behavior.  The errors would have resulted in the failure of legacy paths to user home directories through /nfs/[01-18]. There were also mount failures of /nfs/gpfs on several nodes.
