Fortress Archive Upgrade

April 3, 2019  8:00am – April 4, 2019  1:15pm
Fortress

UPDATE: April 4, 2019  2:57pm

Fortress Globus and SFTP were fully restored by 1:15pm today.


UPDATE: April 3, 2019  11:54pm

All services and access to Fortress are now operating normally aside from Globus and SFTP. Globus remains down while engineers consult with the Globus/HPSS development team. SFTP will be looked at tomorrow as well.

Anyone using hsi or htar from their own systems directly to Fortress will need to upgrade to the latest versions of these tools from our repositories and/or website. Older versions will no longer work after this upgrade.


UPDATE: April 3, 2019  10:00pm

Work continues on bringing Fortress back to normal operation. Engineers report significant progress, but the upgrade is taking far longer than projected. We will provide another update by midnight.


UPDATE: April 3, 2019  4:27pm

Work continues on bringing Fortress back to normal operation. Engineers report no serious problems, but the upgrade is taking far longer than projected. We will provide another update by 9:00pm.


ORIGINAL: April 1, 2019  9:41am

The Fortress Archive will be unavailable April 3, 2019 at 8:00am – April 4, 2019 at 1:15pm for scheduled monthly maintenance.

During this time, Fortress will receive a major upgrade to the HPSS version. Any work which requests files sent to or from Fortress will either block or fail until this maintenance is completed.

Once complete, anyone using hsi or htar packages on their own systems will need to upgrade to the latest versions hosted by Research Computing. This upgrade is not backward compatible.
