Planned downtime

August 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

*** Due to the late availability of the GPFS patches, if compatibility is confirmed between GPFS 4.2.3-6 servers and 4.2.3-9 clients, then the server side may not be updated, to reduce the risk of data loss, and this part of the change deferred until September.***

This patching period will involve the following changes:

  • Login Nodes
    • Security patching on the login nodes.
    • Additional X11 libraries to support light visualisation on these nodes.
    • GPFS version update from 4.2.3-6 to 4.2.3-9
  • OpenPOWER nodes
    • Security patching
    • GPFS version update to 4.2.3-9
    • Recreation of NVMe file system
  • Compute nodes
    • Creation of a node image supporting GPFS 4.2.3-9, to be progressively rolled out.

There will be brief outage of the login nodes between 10am-11am.
