The complete NEMO cluster will be shut down. No computing is possible during the maintenance, so submit all jobs in time. Note that only jobs whose walltime fits into the time window until maintenance can start. Jobs that cannot start will only be processed afterwards. However, in the event of problems, the queue may have to be emptied. During maintenance the operating system of the cluster is updated.

Update 03.03.2022:

The maintenance of the uninterruptible power supply was successfully completed. In addition, firmware updates were applied to all Ethernet switches. On the NEMO worker nodes, the OS was updated to the latest version (security update March, CentOS 7.9, Rev. 17).

We have looked at some hardware security tokens for bwIDM/bwHPC that can be used instead of a mobile phone.
