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.
