[farmshare-discuss] Scheduled downtime: June 22, 8AM–5PM

FarmShare users—

Downtime for regular maintenance has been scheduled for Thursday, June 22, from 8AM–5PM. Both FarmShare and FarmShare 2 services are affected. Please make sure you have completed and saved results from any running jobs, refrain from starting any long-running jobs that might not finish, and log out before the beginning of the maintenance window.

We plan to implement 2-step authentication for cardinal systems during maintenance. While we recognize many users have grown accustomed to using cardinal without the inconvenience of 2-step, this is a required and long overdue security measure. Software that does not support keyboard-interactive authentication will not be able to connect after this change. If you are using such software you may need to make other arrangements; please speak with your local support team and contact research-computing-support at<mailto:research-computing-support at> if you need assistance.

Please also remember that cardinal systems are meant for light and interactive use only, and are not suitable for computation. Running computational loads on these systems degrades performance for their intended use.

Finally, we plan to repurpose some corn systems as compute nodes (wheat) for FarmShare 2. Most corn systems, as well as other FarmShare hardware, will remain in service for now, but consider investigating FarmShare 2 for new work. We will post more information on the transition to FarmShare 2 in the future.
