ICHEC mail #6

Posted: 2005-10-11

Dear ICHEC users,

We would like to inform you that the user service on the IBM cluster (walton) will be suspended on Thursday 13th October 9:00 until Friday 14th October 9:00. This downtime is required to enable remote console functionality and remote systems management. Note that you will be unable to log on walton over this period. Queued jobs will not be affected (they will remain in the queueing system), but we are afraid any jobs still running on Thursday at 9:00 will be killed.

User service on our Bull shared memory system (hamilton) will be suspended on Friday 14th October from 9:30 until 11:30. This downtime is required to re-configure storage on the Bull. Finally, note that our mail/web server will also be down over this period (Fri. 9:30-11:30).

See the ICHEC systems status page for further information. Apologies for the inconvenience.
