      https://www.rc.fas.harvard.edu/resources/documentation/virtual-desktop/ 
    • VPN updates
    • NCF final CentOS 7 cutover
    • Samba cluster (lab share connections) upgrade - List of affected shares at end of page.

A note about Regal scratch: 

We are currently working on the Regal scratch filesystem replacement. The new Lustre filesystem will be available for use at the location /n/scratchlfs.

UPDATED SCHEDULE:

Feb 4th - Completing Filesystem Build
Feb 5-8 - Performance and resiliency testing
Feb 11th - Open for general use.

Please plan to use this new space instead of Regal once it is available. Regal will still be available until the March 4th maintenance. At that time Regal will be available ONLY in read-only mode and provided until May 6th, to allow any remaining data to be transferred by the end-user. 

See our status page for current status: https://status.rc.fas.harvard.edu

SCRATCH RETENTION: A reminder of Regal scratch 90-day retention. Purging runs happen throughout the month, not just during maintenance. See: https://www.rc.fas.harvard.edu/policy-scratch/
