Rolling reboot of Owens and Pitzer starting from February 3, 2020

We will have rolling reboots of Owens and Pitzer clusters including login and compute nodes, starting from Monday, February 3, 2020, to patch recently announced security vulnerabilities. The rolling reboots won't affect any running batch jobs, but users may experience longer queue wait time than usual on both clusters. A reboot of the login nodes is scheduled at 9AM on Monday, February 3, 2020.
