[Investigating] OIT Network Services is aware of issues affecting the accessibility of some resources from the production GlobalProtect Clientless VPN Portal (accessible at https://vpn.gatech.edu from a web browser). Users may experience slow response times or an inability to access some web resources when using the portal, and may see error messages such as 'Connection timed out'. This does *not* affect connections made through the GlobalProtect client/agent-based VPN for Windows, macOS, and Linux.
Network Services is working to resolve the issues with the clientless VPN portal, but in the interim users may wish to utilize the test portal (accessible at https://test.vpn.gatech.edu from a web browser) or connect through the client/agent-based VPN as a workaround. Further updates will be provided as more information becomes available.

So far, we have successfully migrated 300 nodes (out of 484 total) from Hive to the Hive-Slurm cluster. As a reminder, the third and final phase is scheduled on September 26th, during which the remaining 184 nodes will join Hive-Slurm, thereby completing the deployment of Slurm scheduler on the hive cluster. The 184 nodes will be taken offline at 6am ET, however, there won’t be any impact to other nodes or jobs on Hive-Slurm. Note, the latest time your jobs can run on Hive nodes (with Torque/Moab) will be September 26th, prior to 6 AM ET. Jobs submitted to Torque that won't be completed by this time will not run. PACE will be following up with additional updates and reminders.
You are welcome to join an upcoming Slurm orientation. In the meantime, please contact us with any questions or concerns about this transition.

[Update] Dear Hive Researchers,
The third (and final) phase of migration has been successfully completed - all nodes are back online with 184 more compute nodes joining the Hive-Slurm cluster. We have successfully migrated all 484 nodes from Hive to the Hive-Slurm cluster.
You can ssh into the Hive-Slurm cluster using 'ssh <GT username>@login-hive-slurm.pace.gatech.edu'. While 'login-hive.pace.gatech.edu' will serve as an alias, you will get a warning about change in the SSH key when you use it. You can remove this warning by editing the 'known_hosts' file to delete any line containing 'login-hive.pace.gatech.edu'
Please contact us with any questions or concerns you may have about this transition. For more information on using Slurm and transitioning your workflows, please attend the orientation tomorrow at 11am.

All sites still running on PHP 7.4 will be mass-upgraded to PHP 8.0, as part of our End of Life PHP process.
If your site experiences issues post-upgrade, you will be able to downgrade back to PH P7.4 until Feb 28. On Feb 28, PHP 7.4 will be fully removed from the servers.
Reference #: CHG0029523
We will be removing the EOL PHP version, PHP 7.4, from the servers.
Any sites that downgraded back to PHP 7.4 after the mass-upgrade (Feb 2) will be re-upgraded to PHP 8.0, and will no longer have the option to downgrade.
