File Server Maintenance, Saturday Dec 17

The file server maintenance we postponed in October is now taking place and will continue from 9AM onward (all day) to finally migrate the rest of our unix homes off the aging file server onto our new one. To do this, we have functionally taken the home filesystem offline. During this period, all home filesystems will be read-only, and could be unavailable for stretches of time.

This should not affect e-mail, web, or other services beyond the MCS linux computing infrastructure (https://wiki.mcs.anl.gov/IT/index.php/Linux). During this period, you will not be able to save any files to your home directory, you should be able to login to MCS workstations and compute servers, including login.mcs.anl.gov, but this is not guaranteed. After the migration is complete, all linux workstations and compute servers that use this home directory server will be rebooted.
