* Upgrading the slurm cluster management/job scheduling software. This is a minor release, primarily for bug fixes. This will not affect job scheduling. A reservation is set up for the general partition
compute nodes to block them off for the upgrade. Jobs will suspend as the partition drains in preparation.
* Completing the compute node image upgrade. This activity will focus on the general queue; all others have already been upgraded. This upgrade has been extensively tested - RC staff have worked with groups that have their own partitions to make sure their code will run correctly.
* Upgrading the Research Computing VPN. HUIT recently upgraded their VPNs. We are performing this upgrade to maintain consistency with them and to fix minor bugs. During the upgrade, *all users* will be disconnected from their VPN sessions. We have scheduled 2.5 hours during the planned maintenance for the upgrade process; it will probably not last that long. Additional information for the upgrade:
