LUDD AFS Home Directory Migration

published 23/10-19 by armedguy

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 /afs/ to /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.

Please report any issues you might encounter that could be related to the migration to the administrators e.g. via telegram.
