Lonestar5 scratch filesystem access ends 1July2022

Posted by Tim Cockerill on Jun 23, 2022 2:08:37 PM

The Lonestar5 /scratch filesystem has been kept available on Lonestar6 since going into production (mounted read-only on login nodes as /scratch_old) to allow all our previous Lonestar5 users to migrate their data over to the new Lonestar6.

The Lonestar5 /scratch filesystem has been kept available on Lonestar6 since going into production (mounted read-only on login nodes as /scratch_old) to allow all our previous Lonestar5 users to migrate their data over to the new Lonestar6. The last day to access /scratch_old will be July 1, 2022. Following that the mount will be removed and the hardware supporting the filesystem will be removed from the machine room in early July, and thus no further data will be retrievable from the old Lonestar5 filesystem. Please use this final week of availability if you have and data that still needs to be migrated.
