There is currently (2015-03-23 15:11) an outage of the PFS filesystem, rendering it read-only on all HPC2N resources.

Batch queues have been suspended until the problem is resolved.

Update 2015-03-23 16:13:
The problem seems complex and it is unlikely that it will be resolved today.

Update 2015-03-24 18:13:
We believe the problem has been resolved. PFS is again accessible and batch queues have been resumed.

*Update 2015-03-24 19:30*
The file system went back to being mounted read-only. The problem is still there...

*Update 2015-03-25 14:50*
There is also intermittent failures to read files from pfs. Processes (including shells) can hang when trying to access files from pfs. Please beware!

*Update 2015-03-25 19:15*
/pfs/nobackup now seems to be working correctly again.
We are still investigating whether any files where lost or not.
