The /pfs/nobackup (lustre) file system is currently unavailable due to after effects of an electric maintenance problem (see here).
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
We are currently working on restoring access to pfs, but we do not have an ETA right now.
This news will be updated with more information when we have it.
*UPDATE 20150820 15:45*
It will, most likely, take at least until Friday 21th, before we can get this resolved.
