Halstead Cluster Maintenance

December 21, 2016  10:00am – 4:50pm

The Halstead cluster is back online as of 4:50 PM after scheduled early-access maintenance.

Unfortunately, queued jobs were lost due to complications during maintenance. If you had any jobs queued and waiting before maintenance started, you will need to resubmit these. Our apologies for this inconvenience - we are reviewing what happened to prevent this from occurring during future maintenance.

As usual, if you see any lingering issues please let us know at rcac-help@purdue.edu.

The Halstead cluster will be unavailable beginning at Wednesday, December 21st, 2016 at 10:00am, for scheduled early-access maintenance (see Halstead Cluster Early Access Policies). The cluster will return to full production by Wednesday, December 21st, 2016 at 4:50pm.

During this time, Halstead will have all nodes and front-ends rebooted to the newest cluster image, which contains various OS and software updates.

Any PBS jobs which request a walltime which would take them past Wednesday, December 21st, 2016 at 10:00am will not start and will remain in the queue until after the maintenance is completed.
