We have received multiple user reports that Gilbreth cluster began experiencing issues with job submissions over the weekend. The problem manifests as an "Invalid account or account/partition combination specified" error message from sbatch or sinteractive job submission tools. Additionally, slist shows an empty list of available accounts. The problem seems to only affect some users but not others.

Engineers are currently diagnosing the issue and are working to identify a fix.

We will provide an update by 5pm tonight or sooner.
