(Oliver Kurz) @Martin Pluskal @Heiko Rommel as you asked explicitly about whale.qam.suse.de : The machine is in PRG2 but blocked by missing rails for mounting. See https://progress.opensuse.org/issues/132140#note-24 for details. I expect that situation to persist for multiple more weeks before the system can be fully used again. In the meantime there are PowerPC ressources that are currently not used and might be useful for you, see https://progress.opensuse.org/issues/136121
(Martin Pluskal) as we have lets say limited need for powerpc in our day to day testing I guess we would wait for whale unless something urgent powerpc related comes up

so UV squad won't use 'em

Previously blackcurrant-1 have 6 * 0.5TB FC disks with multipath supported, please refer to attached screenshot.

After the machine moving, running PB testing need 3 * 0.5TB FC disks at least if it is not shared with other partition, multipath is optional.

Thank you!

Actually deagol is not PowerPC, I think. Confused thinks. So the machine is "In Stock" and marked accordingly. Good enough.
