X2Go replaces TigerVNC on Fram

X2Go will replace the current VNC solution on Fram. TigerVNC will remain usable until 01.03.23 when it will be shut down. Currently, X2Go is available on login-2 and login-3, while TigerVNC remains available on login-1 until 01.03.23.

All VNC users must therefore switch to X2Go before this date. Documentation can be found here: https://documentation.sigma2.no/getting_started/remote-desktop.html

[Resolved] login-1.fram crashed – VNC unavailable

One of the login nodes on Fram unexpectedly this morning, causing some users to be disconnected from their sessions.

This also affects the VNC service on Fram. Any attempts on using this service will fail while we’re working on restoring the node.

Updates will be provided once we have more information to share.

Update 13:00 – The node, NIRD exports and VNC service is now back up and running and put back into production. Please let us know if you experience any issues.

We’re very sorry for any inconveniences this may cause.
