Licenses for Schrodinger suite and ADF expired Dec. 1st 2022 and will so far we know not be prolonged.
There was an incorrect setup internally that caused internal ssh between nodes to fail, causing Gaussian to do the same when running more than one node. This has now been fixed, and should work as before for all users.
ADF license file has been updated to cover all login nodes on Saga. Thus gui should now work on all login!
We are facing some difficulties with the Stallo file system, and thus will delay access for users until this has been fixed. Possible tradeoff will be days in January with the old friendly gigant.
Access to Stallo has now been closed temporarily due to power testing tomorrow morning 07:00-09:00 in the housing building of Stallo. We will try to put it back into service a.s.a.p after tests have been run.
Note that probabel end-of life for the old monster will be Jan. 04th 2021.
Stallo downtime on Dec 16th is cancelled. Instead downtime on Dec 29th, due to work on power infrastructure. So you can run your calculations till after Christmas without us getting in the way. Regards this a Xmas present from all of us to all of you.
We need to move oldest limps of the faltering monster. In case of trouble, we have choosen to close the machine for users during maintenance time since we may have to power down the network switches on internal network. Downtime is scheduled for 08:00-15:00.
The reported issues related to Stallo file system are resolved. We apologise for the late update.
As published on Twitter; Stallo is now down due to necessary power infrastructure work in the hosting building at UiT. Due to this, and an overall work-load and risk consideration done by the operational team for Stallo, the oldest nodes – c1-c19; i.e. the 16 core nodes, will not be turned on again tomorrow. This includes the high mem partition on Stallo. Thus Stallo will be reduced by approximately 4800 cores from now. Expected downtime is 24 hrs from 12 today. from noon tomorrow only the 20 core nodes will be up, a total of approx 10k cores running out dec. 20.
Stallo is now up and running again. Unfortunately, the old lad lost two racks during hibernation. We are looking into it and will report when things are up and ok again. Please look into jobs that have been restarted and report back if they produce no output.
