Date Text
2020-06-17 Cooling issues were resolved successfully. Clusters are back to running normally. No jobs should have been affected.
2020-06-16 Cooling problem persist, and we need to make an emergency shutdown such that the eletrician can replace the faulty part. The plan is to perform the work 2020-06-17 08:00. We will try to keep things running jobs up on Hebbe and Vera if possible. This may take several hours.
2020-06-10 Draining compute-nodes to lower heat output, due to fan-failure in cooling system.
2020-04-30 Compute nodes (both hebbe and vera) will not be able to use the old storage /c3se/ any longer. The login-nodes will still have access to the old storage, for moving files etc.
