Account Consolidation: During July 17 Downtime

If you have more than one account today, after the downtime you will only be able to access the account we've recorded as your preferred username. We have communicated with those of you impacted individually to record your preference and will remind you of your selection over the next week. Jobs submitted by non-preferred accounts that do not run prior to the downtime will be deleted, as the jobs will fail after the downtime.

DOWNTIME FOR ALL CLUSTERS JULY 17

A downtime is scheduled for all HPC systems starting July 17, 2018, beginning at 7:00 A.M. and scheduled to finish by 5 P.M. The downtime will affect the Oakley, Owens, Ruby clusters. Login services and access to storage will not be available during this time. In preparation for the downtime the batch scheduler will begin holding jobs that cannot complete before July 17 at 7:00 A.M.

ROLLING REBOOTS OF ALL CLUSTERS STARTING JUNE 19

We will have rolling reboots of three clusters (Owens, Ruby, and Oakley) including login and compute nodes, starting from 8 AM Tuesday, June 19, 2018. The rolling reboots will address recent Kernel vulnerabilities patched by RedHat. The rolling reboots won't affect any running jobs, but users may experience longer queue wait time than usual on the cluster. For the most updated information, please see https://bit.ly/2sRW3Ts
