    PRAIRIEFIRE service restored after outage


    Hello,

    On Jun 22 the PRAIRIEFIRE head node suffered a hard disk failure that required a system rebuild. The system was rebuilt with current backups and is now available for you to log into. If you find a software feature that is unavailable or dysfunctional please send an email to hcc-support@unl.edu

    Thank you,

    Category:  System Failure

    Firefly's /work space is temporarily unavailable as a filesystem check is required on it. Your running jobs accessing /work will stall until it the filesystem check completes. Our estimate for this is 7 hours. You do not need to terminate your running jobs.
