Jobsub server jobsub01 to be upgraded to new hardware Wednesday, June 15

Dear Jobsub users,

WHAT ARE WE DOING?

Computing will be moving one of the production Jobsub servers (jobsub01) to new hardware on June 15. This will require us to pause all job submissions to jobsub01 starting June 8.

WHEN WILL THIS OCCUR?

We will pause all job submissions to jobsub01 at 10 a.m. Central Time on Wednesday, June 8. The hardware upgrade for jobsub01 will start at 7 a.m. Central Time on Wednesday, June 15.

WHAT IS THE IMPACT TO YOU?

  • Starting from 10 a.m. on Wednesday, June 8, you will not be able to submit new jobs to jobsub01. Any existing jobs that are already running on jobsub01 will be allowed to finish like normal, with the relevant data available for retrieval. However, on Wednesday, June 15, you will no longer be able to retrieve data from jobsub01. We plan to copy job sandboxes to the new machine, but they will not be available immediately.
  • Jobs running on jobsub02 and jobsub03 will be unaffected by this upgrade.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?

We highly recommend that you retrieve any results and log files you need from jobsub01 before 7 a.m. on June 15.
