Winter Maintenance Downtime - Dec 17th, scheduled 5 months ago

Update 5PM: Maintenance is complete.

Date: Monday December 17th Time: TBD - All day event

FAS RC will be performing maintenance on several systems, primarily, but not limited to, most resources housed in our Boston data center. Please plan accordingly as this all-day event will likely affect all users and jobs.

This downtime will interrupt many services including, but not limited to: storage, home directories, authentication, accounts and Portal, as well as licensing and virtual machines.

  • Running jobs will be paused. New jobs cannot be submitted until after the downtime.
  • Running GPU jobs will need to be terminated in order to perform CUDA/GPU updates.
  • Storage firmware updates will affect some lab and home storage. Impacted storage will be: uchidafs1, lichtmanfs2, and boslfs
  • Some hosted websites will be down for migration. A list can be found at the link below.
