  • 2012-10-25:  SANDHILLS: Outage planned for SANDHILLS Wednesday, October 31
    Category:  Maintenance

    On Wednesday October 31 SANDHILLS will be shutdown at
    about 10:00 a.m. in order to upgrade filesystems. Because
    of the nature of the upgrade all running jobs will be killed.
    Some research groups will be impacted by new quota policies.
    You will receive a separate email if this applies to you.
    We expect the outage to last no longer than four hours. Jobs
    may be delayed leading up to the maintenance window. Any jobs
    which cannot complete before the maintenance window will be
    held until work is complete.
