Due to the publication of a recent security alert,

Euler will be taken off-line next Wednesday to patch the operating system.

The maintenance will start Wednesday, March 1st at 07:00. Normal operation is expected to resume in the afternoon.

This security patch will require a reboot of all login and compute nodes. As usual, batch queues will be progressively inactivated in the days and hours before the maintenance, to ensure that no job is killed when the nodes are rebooted.

No action is required on your part.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Please watch this space for updates before and during the maintenance.
