Chinook System Outage 02-15-2018

Chinook is back online and available for use.

There was an unplanned power outage in the UAF Butro Data Center at roughly 4:15am this morning. Chinook is offline and the $CENTER1 filesystem is unavailable on the Linux Workstations. We are currently assessing when they will be operational again, and will distribute notifications as more information is available.

RCS Systems Outage

Due to a campus power outage on January 23rd RCS systems are currently offline, including Chinook, VMs hosting websites, and hosted storage. We are in the process of verifying that power is stable in the data center and will be working to bring RCS systems back online throughout the day.

Chinook Outage and Filesystem Change

This outage is required to facilitate an upgrade of the high-speed, Lustre filesystem software and implement a new management structure for storage services.

Following this outage, all user directories in $CENTER1 will be located in subdirectories under the project(s) that you are a member. Each project will receive a 1 TB, unpurged quota. User directories currently in $CENTER1 will be moved to the new $CENTER1 project directory.

July 27th Chinook Scheduled Outage

On July 27th there will be maintenance on the $CENTER1 file system to address slowdown and errors involving file operations. The system will need to be taken offline to apply a patch that we anticipate will resolve these issues. Jobs that are scheduled to run during this downtime will stay in the queue and be run after the downtime reservation. The Chinook HPC cluster and the Linux workstations will be affected by this outage.

Chinook00 Reboot

Chinook00 is being rebooted on July 12, 2017 at 3pm AKDT. This should be a brief outage, and logins during the time chinook00.alaska.edu is offline should be redirected to the other login nodes.

Web Services

Due to continued system troubles from the June 28 unplanned power outage, some web services may be experiencing glitches. RCS is currently troubleshooting to restore services.
