WC-IC downtime for urgent hardware repairs Monday, March 15

Dear WC-IC users,

WHAT ARE WE DOING?
The Wilson Institutional Cluster (WC-IC) will be unavailable to users in order to perform urgent hardware repairs to the cluster’s NFS server.

WHEN WILL THIS OCCUR?
Monday, March 15, 2021; 7 a.m. to 11 a.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.
• The WC login node and the NFS server hosting the directory /work1 will require reboots.
• The cluster will be drained of running jobs prior to the downtime. Jobs in queue will remain in a 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 7 a.m. on Monday, March 15.
