Dear users,

During this maintenance, 2021-11-15 06:00 - 2021-11-17 17:00, we’re going to do some upgrades on the parallel file system, where home directories and project storage is located, along with other upgrades on Kebnekaise itself.

Since this maintenance affects the parallel file system we have to drain the batch nodes from running jobs. Login sessions will be disabled and active sessions will be terminated, during that period.

If you have any data you need access to during the maintenance period, make sure that you have copied it to your own system before the maintenance starts.

During the week leading up to this maintenance only batch jobs which are short enough to end before the maintenance will be allowed to start, while longer jobs will remain in the queue until after the maintenance.

  • Parallel file system for home directories and project storage
    • speedup of the system since more features will be enabled 
    • includes patches for the the storage problems previously experienced

To check for current status on this maintenance please see our News page

If there is any questions please send them to, or if there are any problems or issues after the maintenance.

Best regards
Support @HPC2N
