The new CentOS7 cylc server cylc.jasmin.ac.uk with SLURM enabled is available for users to test out. Please note that the environment variable for the new cylc server has to be set to /apps/jasmin/metomi/bin
if [[ $(hostname) =~ ^cylc ]] ; then
Plans for updates to mass-cli1: We are currently working on replacements for the “mass-cli1”. More information about the new configurations will be provided in future communications.
