Dear cluster users,
we would like to remind you all of the upcoming maintenance of the OMNI cluster. The cluster will be unavailable from Thursday, August 26, 2021 7:00 AM to Monday, August 30 in the morning. We apologize for this extended disruption, which became necessary due to electrical work at Hölderlin campus.
During the maintenance window we will also make changes to the permissions of your Home directories. The change will affect users who already had a Home on HorUS. On HorUS, all users had read access to each others’ Home directories (755 in the octal notation). We will remove these permissions (700 in the octal notation) to harmonize this with the new OMNI Homes. If you would like to change it back, you can do this with the following command:
chmod 755 /home/<Your Username>
If you never had access to the HorUS cluster, nothing will change for you.
Your HPC Team
