NCAR RDA outage August 22-24, 2016

UPDATE Thu Aug 25, 2016:
All systems are back up and operating normally.  Thank-you for your patience.

NCAR CISL supercomputers and central file disk systems will be down for system maintenance from 0:01 MDT on Monday, August 22, 2016 until late Wednesday, August 24.  The HPSS systems will begin to shut down at 21:00 MDT on Sunday, August 21.

When we come back, we'll have more storage and be able to provide more data for you on disks.

From the Daily B:
The Yellowstone, Geyser, Caldera, and GLADE systems will be unavailable beginning at 12:01 a.m. Monday, and the HPSS system will be unavailable starting at 9 p.m. Sunday, earlier than previously announced. All of these systems are expected to be back in production by late Wednesday afternoon, August 24.

Facilities upgrades during the downtime are related to expansion of the GLADE file systems and preparation for the new Cheyenne HPC system at the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center. Power will be unavailable for much of that period.

When the systems are returned to service following the downtime, users will have larger GLADE home space quotas. The current 10-GB quota will be increased to 25 GB. The larger GLADE file systems will serve both the Yellowstone and Cheyenne supercomputers. Users will be informed via the CISL Notifier service when each system is returned to production.
