Hermes/Nestor: decommissioning old GPFS filesystem Tuesday 19 February

At 10 a.m. PST on 19 February 2013 we will be decommissioning the old GPFS filesystem to release storage for other uses.  We migrated off of this filesystem to new storage during the outage of 7 February 2013.

We do not expect this work to affect the new filesystem, but we will be removing storage and components from an active GPFS cluster and so there is some potential risk to the home and scratch filesystem.  Please let us know if you experience or observe any unexpected or adverse behaviour.
