cooling water system outage for some clusters
On last friday evening one of the cooling water pumps installed in ETZ/D/96.2 stopped working correctly. This forced some of the racks in this server room to shutdown in order to protect the servers from thermal damage. All clusters from IFH, IBT, BIWI, TIK, IKT and VAW were affected.
The facility management is working on solving the problem.
The servers are currently (08:35) down again. Please, even if they come up again, do not use them for long-timed computations as we still do not know when exactly the technician has solved the issue.
- Update: 2010-11-17 08:25
- The rack systems are running now with only one cooling water pump. A new pump is ordered by the rack company.
- Update: 2010-11-18 16:00
