UPDATE 12PM: The upgrade process has come to a point we can move forward. We'll be opening the systems back up soon. The vendor is reviewing to see why the process took so long and create a plan to complete the next step at some point in the future.
UPDATE 8AM Wednesday: The update process is moving much slower than projected. We are working with the vendor to determine if there are alternatives. We are also working on a Plan B to bring the clusters up without Panasas, if need be.
UPDATE 5PM: The Panasas storage update is taking longer than the vendor anticipated. Systems need to remain offline until this update is completed.
