LustreC hardware issue

November 12, 2013  8:00am – 11:45pm
Carter, Hansen

Update: 11:00pm, Nov. 12, 2013

ITaP storage engineers have returned the offline hardware to production and LustreC is back in production. Queues on Hansen and Carter have been restarted as of 11:45pm.

Update: 5:00pm

Following consultation with vendor support, ITaP engineers have begun a reconstruction of the failed hardware device inside the LustreC filesystem.

The current estimate for a return to production for LustreC is 9:00am tomorrow, November 13, at which point we will post an update. All currently-running PBS jobs have been extended accordingly.

Please contact us if you have any questions.
