Problems with home-directories and project storage (2021-04-01) *SOLVED 2021-04-06*

We are noticing intermittent file server crashes causing problems. This causes problems with the file systems for $HOME and project storage. As a user it is mostly noticed by logins getting stuck after authentication and/or really slow filesystem access (simple ls might takes minutes).

The exact cause is not known but we are doing active debugging together with our vendor. During the debugging we might block the starting of new batch jobs. You can still submit jobs but they will not start.

 

*UPDATE 2021-04-06 10:00*

Problem identified and workaround is in place, we are now waiting for a update to the server code from our vendor for a permanent fix.
