===== GENERAL INFORMATION (as of 13:23 Wed Oct 29, 2014)
============================================================================
Discover Users: When creating a ticket to report a Discover job crashing, if
possible please include the job ID.  This will greatly enhance our ability
to diagnose the problem.  Thank you.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The MATLAB licenses on discover are in high demand.  If you are not
currently actively using MATLAB on the dali nodes, please exit your session
so that other users may use the local licenses.

Note A: Discover administrators will be physically relocating the
Discover-NASTRAN environment in order to make room for a new Discover
Scalable Computing Unit (SCU).  As a result, the Discover-NASTRAN nodes will
be unavailable for a 4-hour widow on either November 6 or November 7.

The uncertainty in start date/time is due to the need for other physical
relocation work within the Discover cluster that must precede the
relocation of the Discover-NASTRAN environment.  We will provide
additional information as it becomes available.  Thank you for your
patience as we perform this work.

11/01 SAT 0900-1900 Agency RSA Server    Token Infrastructure Upgrade.
                                         (See Note A.)

Note A: NASA Agency RSA SecurID authentications will be intermittently as
the NASA Enterprise Applications Competency Center (NEACC) ICAM team
upgrades the Agency Two-Factor Token Infrastructure supporting RSA SecurID
Token authentication.  NEACC anticipates a 30 minute complete outage for
most applications.  Although, some supported applications could see a 2 hour
outage as replica servers are migrated.  Questions or comments about this
outage should be directed to the Competency Center Customer Care Mailbox at
CustomerCare.IEMP@nasa.gov.
