Scientific Computing Filesystem Data Issue

Due to a hardware failure over the weekend, a small subset of files on the scientific computing Lustre system were lost.  This affects files in /work, /cache, and /volatile. If your data is affected, file access attempts will return the error "Cannot send after transport endpoint shutdown".  The scientific computing group is working on automatically removing the affected files.
