Home Directory Transition from NFS to GPFS on lsst-dev01: Final Reminder

A reminder of changes to be made tomorrow Thursday January 19 during the standard maintenance window (8 AM CST – 10 AM CST) for home directories on lsst-dev01:

  • GPFS home directories will be remounted to /home/ on lsst-dev01 (and all interactive servers)
  • GPFS home directories have a 1TB storage limit per user
  • NFS home directories will be remounted readonly to /home-old/ on only lsst-dev01 server
  • If an ssh key has not yet been transferred to the GPFS home (currently under /home-new) by the time of the transition, users can log in with their NCSA password. The NCSA password can be reset at https://identity.ncsa.illinois.edu/reset .
  • The legacy system lsst-dev-old will be decommissioned, and will no longer be available.
  • On Feb 16, 2017 the NFS home directories will no longer be available. Users are responsible for moving data they wish to preserve to GPFS by this time.

Questions on this transition can be directed to lsst-sysadm@ncsa.illinois.edu or Slack #dm-infrastructure .
