Qserv nodes hard drive reorgcomplete at this time. SUIt and DAX will happen in the near future after the testing goes on the Qserv nodes.
LSP boot camp

Boot camp for the jellybean environment is May 29-June 2. I'm not sure what days it is (or if it's a whole week long). Looks like about 20 users for the K8 common cluster at NCSA for that week. Michelle Butler asked Simon to think about how to "challenge" the system for 20 users and maybe before the boot camp we can test/stress the system to see what it's limitations are before we have 20 people all banging on it at the same time and then we find what the limitations are. Michelle Butler also invoved Steve Pietrowicz and Matias Carrasco Kind to look into helping figure out how to stress test the system.

DTN nodes and new VMsphereon hold until the May 17th PM.
ATS archiver system

Beginning testing. It and the other L1 test stand systems are exempt from the May 17th system upgrades until after the ATS machine shipps to Tucson, and then the L1 test stand will undergo maintenance.
