BAOBAB: Cannot require a cpu/gpu node - Messeage: (ReqNodeNotAvail, Reserved for maintenance)


When using salloc to requrest a cpu/gpu node, the request is stuck pending.

In squeue, I can see that the reason is “(ReqNodeNotAvail, Reserved for maintenance)”.

Is baobab shutting down due to maintenance or is this an error?

It works again.


Hi, I wanted to post some news before but I didn’t had time. We had a high temperature alarm in our datacenter Yesterday and by precaution, we decided to prevent new jobs to start until temperature returned to normal. The other possibility would’ve been to shutdown the whole cluster, not very user friendly isn’t it?
