User-facing Changes Implemented on 23-Aug-2019

Domain Names

The old domain names biocluster.ucr.edu and bioinfo.ucr.edu have finally been discontinued. As a result, users need to use the new hpcc.ucr.edu name for the following services:

  • ssh/scp/ftp/http: cluster.hpcc.ucr.edu instead of biocluster.ucr.edu
  • RStudio Server: rstudio.hpcc.ucr.edu instead of rstudio.bioinfo.ucr.edu
  • Jupyter: jupyter.hpcc.ucr.edu instead of jupyter.bioinfo.ucr.edu
  • Email Support: support@hpcc.ucr.edu instead of support@biocluster.ucr.edu

In addition, URLs containing biocluster.ucr.edu need to be updated to cluster.hpcc.ucr.edu.

Password Reset

After the upgrade on Aug 23, 2019, all HPCC users have been emailed a temporary password with instructions how to change it. This email was sent to the address we have on file for each user. In case you missed the corresponding email notification and/or you are not able to log into the cluster, please email us at support@hpcc.ucr.edu to receive a new password.

Updated OpenMPI

If you have compiled or use software that was compiled with OpenMPI, then it will need to be recompiled. If you are running into any issues, please email us at support@hpcc.ucr.edu.
