HPC filesystem /home/cluster64 temporarily unavailable (solved)

The fileserver exporting /home/cluster64 (and /opt/bcosw crashed for unknown reasons around 20:05 on Thursday Oct. 21. Thus, this filesystem is currently not available. We hope to bring it online again on Friday (Oct. 22) but it also might take until at least Monday.

As a consequence of the missing filesystem, logins to the HPC frontends (e.g. sfront0X, woody) and other systems (e.g cshpc, cssun) may hang or take very long as all these servers may wait for the filesystem, too, if users try to access /home/cluster64 from there.

Update Friday 14:00 – /home/cluster64 is online again
