  • What to Expect

    Head-Node 3 will be updated to the new kernel Red-Hat 6 version 8. We will allocate 30 days to test your programs on this head-node in case any updates affect your program(s) & execution. After 30 days, we will begin to roll-update DEAC nodes at the indicated days for the rest of the summer.

    The head-nodes will be roll-updated as well. Please be careful when you log in on those days!!. You will lose connectivity on the head-nodes during their scheduled update dates.
