We have tentatively scheduled the next planned maintenance outage from Jan 4-8 with multiple outages across all RC Services. Impactful maintenance is generally scheduled 1x per year to avoid multiple smaller outages for researchers throughout the year.

The primary goals of the maintenance will be patching and firmware updates to storage and server hardware and for cluster computing:

  • Rebuild compute nodes with CentOS8 and updated operational standards and processes
  • Update supporting software (SLURM) and researcher software

Researchers will receive an invitation to test their jobs on a development cluster in early November. Questions? Email rescomputing@duke.edu
