[Update, 2022-04-29 08:00] The Fram and Saga maintenances have now started.

[Update, 2022-04-28 12:56] The Betzy maintenance is now over, and jobs are starting again.

[Update, 2022-04-28 08:00] The Betzy maintenance has now started.

There will unfortunately be maintenance stops on all NRIS clusters next week, for an important security update. The maintenance stops will be

  • Betzy: Thursday, April 28. at 08:00
  • Fram and Saga: Friday, April 29. at 08:00

We expect the stops will last a couple of hours. We have set up maintenance reservations on all nodes on the clusters, so jobs that would have run into the reservation will be left pending in the job queue until after the maintenance stop.

We are sorry for the inconvenience this creates. We had hoped to be able to apply the security update with jobs running, but that turned out not to be possible.

[Resolved] NIRD mount unavailable on Saga and Betzy

We have identified that the NIRD mount is unavaialble on Saga and Betzy and are working on finding the cause and putting a fix in place.

28-03-2022-13:20 – Mounts should be back now, the problem was caused by Friday’s maintenance on network gear …

We hope that the above has not caused too much frustration for you guys and we would like to wish a very nice day to everyone !
