September 18, 2012 by Helen He

There will be a scheduled hardware and software maintenance for Hopper next Wednesday, Sept 19, from 6:30 am to midnight Pacific time.   Please plan your work accordingly and check the NERSC Message of the Day (MOTD) for status update:  http://www.nersc.gov/live-status/motd/.

The /project file system (also known as /global/project) will be unavailable from 8am Wednesday, Sept 19 until 5pm Friday, Sept 21, during and after the scheduled Hopper maintenance.  

If your job depends on /project, please add the following "gres" setting in your batch script (so that your job won't start and fail during the /project outage):  
#PBS -l gres=project

If your job is already queued (but not yet running),  the following "qalter" command can be used to add the "gres" setting:
% qalter -l gres=project my_jobid
