(Closed) a effect of failure on SX-ACE file system (Sep 11-14)

We add at Sep 14, 18:30.
The restoration work has been completed, and SX-ACE has resumed operation. We apologize for the inconvenience.
We add at Sep 14, 13:30.
We will restart all nodes of SX-ACE from 1:30 p.m., today for the restoration work.
All users can not access login server/ frontend server on SX-ACE. Now running jobs on SX-ACE temporally stop execution and resume from where it left off after restarting nodes with the "check-point and restart" function.
We will normally operate OCTOPUS and WEB system.
SX-ACE file system has some failure at 8:00 p.m., September 11, 2020. Now, all users can not access "ext area"(/ext). We are currently investigating the impact and doing the restoration work.
