The QRIScloud GPFS servers in Polaris are currently running with reduced redundancy. There has been a failure of one of the two HA servers in the GPFS cluster. We are currently in the process of repairing it with the assistance of the vendor, and will return it to service as soon as possible. There is presently no risk of data loss.
The next update for this issue will be at 15:00 today.
UPDATE - 15:15 - we are making progress but there is more work to be done. Next update at 17:00 today.
UPDATE - 16:00 - both GPFS servers are back in production. Hazard over.
