March 20th 2014 TACC Corral filesystem resolution

  • Issue: Galaxy is currently unavailable due to problems with the Corral filesystem at the Texas Advanced Computing Center.

  • Update: March 21, 2014, TACC staff members identified the cause of the intermittent access to Corral. An unscheduled, extended maintenance period will be required, however, to permanently fix the problem. Corral will be taken down at 9 a.m. (CT) on Saturday, March 22 for the repairs. The estimated time of availability of Corral will be 9 a.m. on Monday, March 24. This maintenance overlaps with prior scheduled maintenance: http://bit.ly/1g778F1.
