Rolling gpint upgrades 10/2-10/10

October 1, 2012 by Katie Antypas | 0 Comments

NERSC needs to update-and-correct the system software installed on the gpint machines. To achieve this, we need to schedule downtime for each of the gpints. The downtime will last from 9:00AM - 5:00PM on the scheduled date. One purpose of this work is to adjust the installed Debian 5 software packages to bring all genepool and genepool-attached systems to a single common OS image. This will help to ensure that installed software on genepool will work correctly on the gpints - there are several cases in open tickets where software works on the genepool login nodes but fails on the gpints; the will also facilitate easier maintenance of the gpints. Another purpose is to perform some hardware maintenance of the gpints where required.
