This maintenance window is required to replace essential $ARCHIVE hardware and software that are past end-of-life. Oracle Solaris based systems will be upgraded to new, Linux based systems.
Following this outage:
Due to a circuit issue in WRRB 004, the Linux workstations are offline and unavailable. The following systems are affected:
We are currently investigating some issues with the $ARCHIVE filesystem based on reports by users. Direct logins to bigdipper to scp files and batch_stages are unavailable, and files in $ARCHIVE may be unavailable. We will update when more information is available.
Chinook and $CENTER1 will be offline from 9 AM to 5PM on February 21, 2018 to upgrade the $CENTER1 filesystem version to correct an identified software defect. Jobs that are scheduled to run during the downtime will stay in the queue and be run after maintenance is completed.
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.
