RC will be implementing a new monthly maintenance policy starting this October 2023 for the HiPerGator-ResVault system. The maintenance will be scheduled for the last Wednesday of each month.
As a default, logins will now be directed to RHEL 8 login nodes and SLURM reservations will favor scheduling on RHEL 8 compute nodes.
RHEL 8 is now the default Operating System for jobs, and Orange Storage will be upgraded on Monday, 28 August, 2023
The HiPerGator upgrade from RHEL-7 to RHEL-8 is progressing, and RHEL-8 nodes are now available for use. A number of machines have been added to the login nodes as well that are currently running RHEL-8.
HiPerGator is beginning a rolling upgrade from Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 7 (RHEL-7) to version 8 (RHEL-8). The upgraded software environment will include updates to important components including NVIDIA GPU drivers, CUDA, communication libraries, and compilers.
