Dear HPC User,

The metadata server for the /shared file system has to be replaced/upgraded and therefore it must be unmounted from all the clients.

This will result in scheduled downtime for Hexagon, Grunch and Cyclone machines. We start at 08:00 AM on the 5th of November and expect to be ready by the end of the working day.

Thank you for your consideration!

There is a scheduled downtime for Hexagon and /shared file system for Wednesday, 23rd of May. Scheduled downtime will start at 09:00 and we expect to have the systems back by 16:00, same day.

Our apologies for any inconvenience this downtime can give you.
