Dear users,

Rescheduled work to apply a storage-related software update to key JASMIN servers (sci, xfer, hpxfer and a limited number of other machines) will take place on Friday 14th May 2021 at 08:30-10:00. A further intervention will take place during the day on Monday 17th May to reboot any servers which have not picked up the update automatically by then. In both cases, please look out for announcements at the console/command line on the machine. Sessions will be interrupted while the server is rebooted but you should be able to re-connect again after a few minutes when the machine has come back up.

Work to reconfigure network connectivity to allow external access to the object storage will take place at 08:30-10:00 on Friday 14th May 2021. This may involve a very brief loss of connection from clients to the object storage, so the storage should be considered “at risk” during that window . This only affects access to the storage from tenancies in the JASMIN community cloud.

With apologies for any inconvenience,
