Monthly maintenance will occur on Monday, October 2nd from 7am to 11am.  

  • Our maintenance work this month is relatively light:

  • applying firmware and patch updates to the primary slurm scheduler system

  • migrate one of our infrastructure machine off of an aging firewall system - no impact expected

  • patch the Active Directory domain controllers that enable authentication - no impact expected

  • login and NX node reboots

  • regal retention. All files not modified within the last 90 days will be deleted. We're also checking for scripts that auto-update modification times. Simply put, do not run scripts that perform these or similar actions. https://www.rc.fas.harvard.edu/policy-scratch/

    Please contact us at rchelp@fas.harvard.edu with questions and/or concerns. Thank you.
