July CENTERWIDE Maintenance Downtime (7/23)

Date of downtime: Tuesday, July 23 beginning at 7am -  through approximately 5pm

Approximate time of outage:  1 full day

Resources affected by downtime:

UB-HPC cluster (general-compute, debug, viz, largemem, and gpu  partitions) 

Industry cluster (compute, scavenger partitions)

Faculty clusters (all partitions in MAE, Chemistry, Physics)

Portals: WebMO, OnDemand

What will be done: 

  • Group name changes - all groups will be renamed to include the prefix "grp-"  i.e. if the group was called staff, it will now be named grp-staff.  See step 1 of this article
  • New faculty cluster - all faculty partitions will be moved from 3 clusters into 1.  Anyone using private nodes will need to change their cluster name to "faculty" - See details here
  • System infrastructure upgrades
  • ColdFront upgrade (subscriptions are now called allocations)

Jobs will be held in the queue for the ub-hpc and industry clusters during the maintenance downtime.   However, all queued jobs on the Chemistry, Physics, and MAE clusters will be deleted.
