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.
On Monday, August 7th, 2023, at 8am, we will upgrade the servers in the “gui” partition. OnDemand applications may look slightly different because of this upgrade due to theming changes in the upgraded software. Please open a support request for any problems encountered.
