The ERDC DSRC announces the decommissioning of Vulcanite. The schedule is as follows:

  • PBS will stop running jobs at 0000 Central Time on Saturday, 4 February 2023
  • User access will be disabled 1600 Central Time on Friday, 10 February 2023

Users should be aware that all data located on Vulcanite will be deleted on 11 February. Users are advised to make plans to transfer any data they wish to preserve beyond 10 February. Data may be relocated to $ARCHIVE_HOME, $CENTER or other HPCMP asset prior to loss of user access. We would like to remind users that larger data sets may require hours to days to relocate, therefore, users should begin moving data well before the 10 February deadline.

ARL DSRC Centennial decommission date has been postponed to March 31, 2023. The PBS queues will be disabled at 23:59 on Friday, March 31, 2023. Users will be allowed to access their local data on the system until 1700 EST on Friday, April 14, 2023. The /archive/* directories are mounted on the unclassified archival servers, so users do not need to do anything with the data in these directories and it is available from other unclassified HPCMP resources. Data on the Center Wide File System (/p/cwfs/*) also will not be affected. Any data under /p/work1/ ($WORKDIR) and /p/home/ ($HOME) will be inaccessible after April 14, so please ensure you have transferred what you need from these directories.
