Extreme login-2 back online

Dear Extreme Users,

The upgrade of the operating system on Extreme login-2 to CentOS 7 has been completed and the node is back online. We are strongly encouraging all Extreme users currently running their analyses on CentOS 6 compute nodes to use login-2 and the batch7 queue to prepare their workflows for running in the new CentOS 7 environment. Starting June 27 we will begin upgrading all nodes running CentOS 6 to CentOS 7 and users who have not updated their workflows by then will risk significant disruption to their studies. An email will be sent out next week containing the upgrade schedule for each job queue. Instructions for compiling software and submitting jobs to the batch7 queue can be found here (you must be on campus or connected to the UIC VPN to access this page).

To report a problem or request a software package, please submit a support ticket or email us at

Best  regards,
