REMINDER - Ember and /scratch/ibrix Downtime Starts Sept 18 at 8:00am

Posted: September 9, 2013

Ember, /scratch/ibrix/chpc_gen and /scratch/ibrix/icse will be taken down on Sept 18 starting at 8:00am to move this hardware from Komas to the Downtown Data Center. Along with the move, the OS will be updated to RHEL 6 and the new versions of the batch scheduler and resource manager, Moab and Torque, will be installed.

There is a reservation in place to empty Ember queue by this time.

Users that use/mount these /scratch/ibrix file spaces from other locations (other clusters or desktops) – please make sure you have any data you need moved off of these two file systems before this time.

For owner Ember nodes, both compute and interactive: Note that any data on the local hard drives (/scratch/local) will be lost in this process. If you have any data in this location, you need to move it elsewhere before 8:00am Sept 18. If you need any assistance, please submit a request to
