Upcoming CRC Maintenance - May 15th, 2020

CRC Maintenance - May 15th, 2020

The CRC's next full maintenance period will begin at 6:30 AM on Friday, May 15, 2020.  At that time, all compute and login nodes will be powered off in order to apply software and security updates. These systems, including access to files and data, will be unavailable for users until the afternoon of Sunday, May 17, 2020.

Virtual machine (VM) operators and users should also be aware of the planned outage between the hours of 6:30 AM and 10:30 AM on Friday, May 15.  Maintenance will be performed on the core network switch and the storage system used for VMs. While this maintenance takes place, all VMs hosted by the CRC, both public and private, will be shut down and will remain offline.  As soon as the network switch and storage system are returned to service, all VMs will be restored.

During this time the CRC will maintain compute system integrity, but requests to user support may experience significant delays.
