Hansen will be decommissioned tomorrow night.

After tomorrow, data in /scratch/hansen WILL NOT BE RETRIEVABLE from any system. Please follow the instructions below to ensure any valuable files are migrated elsewhere.

Original Message:

Hansen will be decommissioned on October 1, 2016 as per previous notices.

The compute nodes and scratch storage will both be decommissioned and all files will need to be migrated before this time.

After October 1, 2016, your data will no longer be accessible. ITaP recommends storing important data in the Fortress HPSS archive or Data Depot service. To copy data to another cluster scratch, we recommend rsync or Globus.

For example: rsync -auH /scratch/hansen/r/rherban/* rice:/scratch/rice/r/rherban

For more information on using Fortress or Data Depot, please visit the following links http://www.rcac.purdue.edu/storage/fortress/


If you have any questions, please contact rcac-help@purdue.edu

Thank you again for your participation in the community cluster program and we look forward to our continued partnership.
