Recent Announcement:

The SLURM server will be going down for maintenance from 9:00PM to 11:00PM on Sunday, November 11th. New jobs cannot be submitted during this time and all SLURM commands (sbatch/salloc/srun/squeue etc.) will be unavailable. Running jobs will not be affected by this downtime. Update: The SLURM server is back online and accepting jobs.
On the week of October 29th, we will be moving the Intel16 cluster over to the new data center. No jobs will run on this cluster during this outage. Intel14 and Intel18 will remain available during this transition. The cluster will return to service by the end of the week. Please let us know https://contact.icer.msu.edu/contactif you have any concerns.  All Intel16 nodes have been returned to service.
Samba pushed an update the broke mapping connections to our file storage systems.  This has been corrected and drive should mount properly now.
