[Resolved] Scheduled downtime for all ACCRE systems from Tuesday, April 28 at midnight until Thursday 4/30 at 11:59pm

Posted by on Friday, April 3, 2020 in Cluster Status Notice.

Update, 5/1/2020: This is to let you know that ACCRE’s systems are back online as of midnight as planned. All maintenance items were successfully completed.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation. The three days allowed our team to address critical updates to the storage and network infrastructure. With our systems offline, VUIT facilities was also able to perform important improvements to the data center’s electrical and monitoring systems.

Please submit a helpdesk ticket if you run into any issues.


Update, 4/8/2020: The scheduled downtime has been pushed back by a week due to needs during finals. It will take place April 28 to 30th. The dates below have been updated accordingly.


As per agreement with our Faculty Advisory Board and the chair of our Steering Committee, ACCRE will have a scheduled downtime of all our systems in order to perform firmware and network upgrades. The cluster and its associated storage and network will be unavailable starting at 12am on April 28th. The systems will be offline for 3 days and will resume operations at 12am on May 1st. This will affect all ACCRE users including those migrated from the DORS core.

We ask that you plan accordingly and be ready to shutdown your cluster activities by April 28th. We will be sending out two more reminders prior to the downtime.
