Wilson Institutional Cluster (WC-IC) maintenance with downtime Wednesday, Feb. 17

Dear WC-IC users,

WHAT ARE WE DOING?
Computing will be switching the directory /work1 from being hosted on the Fermilab central storage server to a dedicated NFS server physically attached to the same network as the Wilson Institutional Cluster (WC-IC) and mounted over Infiniband. This switch over to a dedicated NFS server will provide orders of magnitude better performance and latency improvement compared to the existing setup.

WHEN WILL THIS OCCUR?
Wednesday, Feb. 17, 2021; 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central Time

WHAT IS THE IMPACT TO YOU?
During this time, all WC-IC cluster compute and storage resources will be offline and unavailable to users. Jobs in queue will remain in queued state and will be scheduled to run once this work is complete.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?
WC-IC users will need to save all their data and log off before 6 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 17.
