Connecting to UNT VPN on A Mobile Phone

 

Installing the VPN application on your mobile device:

 

iPhone: Install the Cisco 'AnyConnect' app from the App Store.

Android: Install the Cisco 'AnyConnect' app from Google Play.

 

Once installed, Add a new VPN connection with a server address ‘vpn.unt.edu’ or ‘vpn2.unt.edu’.

Log in with your UNT EUID and password.

Now turn on the 'AnyConnect' VPN. 

 

Make sure your VPN status is in connected state:

Talon3 launch

HPC Community,

We are excited that we are close to launching Talon3! A select group of users is currently beta testing the new cluster. We anticipate launching Talon3 early next week pending feedback from testing. As such I wanted to ensure you were aware of a few items:

Talon2 online

Hi HPC Community,

Talon2 is back online and compute services have been resumed. All jobs that were suspended appear to have resumed correctly. As always, please notify us immediately if anything looks out of place.

Please note that we are still solving the Lustre Metadata high-availability issue. Lustre is extremely robust but this issue could cause loss of redundancy. However, we feel the risk of this is low enough that we can safely resume  service. 

A few more updates:

Talon2 Maintenance status

Hi,

In regards to the scheduled maintenance.. Unfortunately we encountered a few unforeseen issues that set us back yesterday. However, we are about 80% complete with the work needed in order to restore services. We are fairly confident that Talon2 will be back online this afternoon/evening. Please standby for updates..

To give a scope of the work already accomplished:

- > 200 fiber cables were individually prepared and labeled

- > 100 fiber cables had to be untangled, sorted, and tested

Beginning Maintenance on Talon2

Research Community,
Momentarily we will begin maintenance on the Infiniband infrastructure that you were notified of last Tuesday.  The maintenance is required in order to finalize the upgrade to Talon3.  Therefore, shortly Talon2 (talon2.acs.unt.edu) will temporarily taken offline to perform the maintenance. Compute services will be unavailable until Wednesday afternoon January 25, 2017. 

As always, please message hpc-admin@unt.edu if you have any concerns or questions.

Talon2 Maintenance

HPC Research Community,

Next Monday January 23, 2017, we plan to perform crucial maintenance on the Infiniband infrastructure that supports high speed communication on Talon2.  The maintenance is required in order to finalize the upgrade to Talon3. Unfortunately Talon2 and it's Infiniband network must be temporarily taken offline to perform the maintenance. Compute services will be unavailable from Monday morning on January 23, 2017 until Wednesday afternoon January 25, 2017. 

Talon 3.0 Upgrade Plan

HPC Community,

UIT HPC Services is in the final stages of preparing to upgrade the Talon 2.0 HPC system to Talon 3.0.  This upgrade will result in additional computational capacity while minimizing, as much as possible,  complete interruption of HPC service. However, during the next two months of November and December, expect operations to continue with degraded compute capacity. This will likely increase queue wait times for submitted jobs.
