Summit SFA upgrade was concluded. All drives, controllers and enclosures firmware updated to the latest version.
As we had trouble to boot one of the controllers during the upgraded (resolved with support assistance), time got short and we haven't upgraded GPFS servers this time. However that can be done in the future without downtime.
Reservations were removed and Summit Scratch and PL are available again for production.

Research Computing will perform a Summit storage upgrade on Wednesday, 9 June 2021. Maintenance activities include:
- Summit SFA controller firmware upgrade
- Enclosure and drive firmware upgrade
- GPFS servers upgrade
- Storage configuration updates based on vendor recommendations
We expect that this upgrade will prevent the SFA storage failure that impacted Summit a month ago.
Maintenance is scheduled to take place between 07:00 and 19:00, though service will be restored as soon as all activities have concluded. During the maintenance period no jobs will run on Summit resources, PetaLibrary allocations hosted in Summit will also be unavailable.
