NCAR RDA System Outage June 7, 2016

UPDATE Jun 7 21:36:04 MDT 2016:
All systems and services are up and running. Thank-you for your patience.

SCHEDULED OUTAGE NOTIFICATION

The Yellowstone, Geyser, and Caldera clusters will be unavailable during a scheduled maintenance period from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. MDT on Tuesday, June 7. CISL staff will use this downtime to upgrade the system's GPFS client software to version 4.2.0.3.

A system reservation will be put in place 12 hours before the scheduled downtime. Users' jobs with specified job times that overlap the reservation period will remain on hold until the system is restored to service. Longer-running jobs that have not finished by 7 a.m. Tuesday will be killed and need to be resubmitted after the maintenance period. We apologize for the short notice and for any inconvenience this might cause.

START: Tue Jun 7 2016 6:00 AM MDT
DURATION: 11 hours

SERVICES AFFECTED
Geyser and Caldera
Yellowstone
Direct access of RDA data from /GLADE will not be available during this time.

The RDA web server will remain up and continue to accept data requests. But, the requests will not be filled until after the clusters are brought back up. Jobs submitted up to 12 hours before the system outage may also be held until after the outage. Data request jobs should run automatically after system restart.

To avoid uncertainty, submit your data requests early, so that they may complete before the system maintenance outage.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

You can check the CISL Resource Status Page for updates.
