Cheyenne OS upgrade: status update

July 2, 2019

CISL's HPC system administrators, Consulting Services Group, and HPE engineers resolved several significant issues on Monday towards completing Cheyenne's operating system upgrade. A full suite of system tests were executed overnight and the test results are being analyzed this morning. If they were successful, the system will be rebooted later this morning. Following the reboot, the system tests will be repeated for added confidence in the system's health. 

A firm ETA is not yet available, but if all goes well Cheyenne could be returned to service by midday. Users will be apprised of any significant updates through CISL’s Notifier service, which was restored Monday afternoon.
