May 2024 Maintenance

May 2024 Maintenance

On Wednesday, May 1, 2024, MSI staff will perform scheduled maintenance and upgrades to various MSI systems. During this month’s scheduled maintenance period, primary storage, Mesabi, Mangi, and Agate will be unavailable throughout much of the day.

A global system reservation will start at 5:00 a.m. on May 1. Jobs that cannot be completed before 5:00 a.m. on May 1 will be held until after maintenance and then started once the system returns to production status.

As previously warned multiple times, the Agate cluster will be getting a new operating system, which may cause a problem with your workflows. FAQs and known workarounds for this transition to Rocky8 can be found on the Rocky8 transition page

Systems status is always available on our Status page

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact the MSI Helpdesk via email to or by calling 612-626-0802.
