REMINDER : Cluster upgrade from SL5 to SL6

10 September 2013

Dear all,

The CC-IN2P3 will officially switch to Scientific Linux 6 (SL6) as the default platform at the end of October. In order to ease this transition, we’re making available to our users a platform for production and code validation:

- Interactive SL6 platform:
- Batch SL6 pre-production platform: 25% of the wall farm

For job submission on either SL5 or SL6 you can use:
- SL5 : ’-l os=sl5’ (default)
- SL6 : ’-l os=sl6’
- both : ’-l os="sl5|sl6"’

At the next scheduled outage on 24/09, 50% of the computing farm will be migrated to SL6. During October 95% of the computing farm will be at SL6, the complete extinction of SL5 is expected at the end of november.

In case of any question or problem with this migration, feel free to contact us.

Best regards, CC-IN2P3 User Support
