[DONE] Fram Maintenance October 6 — 8.

Update, 2021-10-11 08:15: The maintenance is now finished, and the compute nodes are in production again. (There are still some nodes down, they will be fixed and returned to production. Also, the VNC service is not up yet. We are looking at it.)

Update, 2021-10-08 15:40: We have now opened the login nodes for users again. The work on the cooling system is taking longer than we hoped, so the compute nodes will not be available until Monday morning.

Udate: The maintenance stop has now started.

UPDATE OCTOBER 4TH:

Login and file system services will be available during Friday or earlier, but running jobs will not be possible until Monday morning

There will be a maintenance stop on Fram starting Wednesday October 6 at 12:00 and ending Friday 8 in the afternoon. All of Fram will be down and unavailable during that time. Jobs that would not finish before the maintenance starts will be left pending until after the maintenance.

The main reason for the maintenance is replacements of some parts of the cooling system. During the stop, the OS of compute and login nodes will be updated from CentOS 7.7 to 7.9, and Slurm will be upgraded to 20.11.8 (the same version as on Saga).
