May 2022 Maintenance

On Wednesday, May 4, 2022, MSI staff will perform scheduled maintenance and upgrades to various MSI systems. During this month's scheduled maintenance period, primary storage may be unavailable or in a read-only state throughout much of the day. Mesabi and Mangi front-end nodes will be unavailable some portion of the day.

A global system reservation will start at 5:00 a.m. on May 4. Jobs that cannot be completed before 5:00 a.m. on May 4 will be held until after maintenance and then started once the system returns to production status.

Stratus VM users should check after maintenance to see if you VM has returned to normal.

Some PI functions on the website will be unavailable during maintenance.

Systems status is always available on our Status page.
