We have recently changed the directory path for the userweb from
If you have any scripts that point to the full path you need to change this to the new path.
If you have any questions you can direct them to the administrators.

Med hänsyn till ny information kring LTUs hantering av covid-19 vill vi gå ut med att LUDD som förening avser att följa universitets hantering.
LTU följer enligt uppgift regeringens och skolverkets rekommendation att ställa in verksamhet på plats och gå över till distansverksamhet, och då vill vi be våra medlemmar att följa LTUs beslut. Så länge skolans hus är öppna kommer medlemslokalen vara öppen, men vi uppmanar inte vistelse i T1. Allt sker på egen bedömning och risk.

Today we have conducted yet another user directory migration, this time done as an emergency. We managed to get our new storage system for userdata up and running (separate from all other systems) with SSD-based storage, and took the decision to migrate everything directly instead of scheduling a maintenance, due to the mail problems we have had. The temporary storage we had were running on old HDD-based storage and could not keep up with the iops from both mail, virtual machines and user directories, which is why you have been seeing connection and mail delivery issues for some time now.
We hope that this new solution can be permanent and serve all users well, with increased uptime and speeds.
New user directory prefix is
/ludd/users, we decided to make this move to make
any future moves technology agnostic, so that we dont have to change userdir

Tomorrow (24th of Oct, 2019) we will start migrating user directories from AFS to GlusterFS.
This is being done for multiple reasons, including incompatiblity with our thin client cluster, performance, manageability, to name a few.
The main noticable change will be the home directory prefix going from
/gfs/users. Please make sure to update any scripts
that use the full path as the old one will go read only when we migrate.
Some mails might take a bit longer to arrive when your account is being migrated, this is due to us pausing deliveries to ensure consistent state of mail directories.

On the evening of 23rd of June, ALL LUDD services will be shut down for power maintenance as well as maintenance of OpenStack and member services. This includes all LUDD services, LUDD DUSTcloud services, LUDD DUST HPC services, as well as virtual and physical LCNet offerings.
Mail services will also be down, so the primary point of contact with LUDD
administrators will be via
#ludd @ irc.freenode.net or LUDD:s Telegram
channel. Any questions prior to the downtime, or if you
are interested to help or curious about what will be done, contact
We reserve for all services to be down until the 1st of July, but hopefully they will be restored as soon as possible.

On the 25th of March, all systems and networks on LUDD and LCnet will be down during the whole day. This downtime might extend to the 26th as well.
Systems will be shut down on the 24th at 23:00. (LCNet users, please shut down beforehand, as we will only cut the power to the racks).
LUDD DUSTcloud services will also be down during this time, including all users machines.
The reason is due to electrical work in the datacenter.
