Upcoming Maintenance: January 2014

Lustre Production File System Object Migration:
On January 11th-12th we will switch to the new Lustre production file system

The majority of the users should be able to continue to run production jobs on January 13th again. External users with more than 9TB used disk space will find their data in /home/lustre_data/username on Jan 13th. This will probably exceed the home quota limit and you will have to move the important data to /lustre/datura/username on your own.
