The scheduled maintenance of /work-common has finished and is available again on Fimm.
Hexagon maintenance has started as planned. Maintenance work is ongoing.
As part of maintenance /work-common will be unmounted, making it additionally unavailable on Fimm.
We will have a planned hexagon maintenance on November, 24th and 25th.
The maintenance will start on 24th at 9:00 and we expect it will take
around 2 days.
The job submission system has reservation in place such as the jobs
which are not able to finish before the maintenance will not be started.

* Update Cray Linux Environment to 5.2.UP02
* Update Lustre file system on /work and /work-common
* Apply different firmware updates and patches
