August Shutdown Complete

All of the shutdown tasks have been completed and the cluster is now serving our customers again.

Some of the changes that have been made to the cluster:

  • New Orange storage has been installed and configured for use. This relieves the problems we were having with Orange storage being full. 
  • All of the lustre filesystems have been mounted in a new location:
    • Orange: /lustre/orange
    • Blue: /lustre/blue
    • Red: /lustre/red
  • In the server room itself, a lot of re-cabling occurred during this shutdown in order to move some old equipment out of the way to make room for new and to organize the equipment in a more suitable way. 

If you see any problems with the cluster, do not hesitate to submit a trouble ticket at
