HPSS Kerberos Ticket Lifetime extended

Jul 14, 2020

Dear users,

we are recommending to use Kerberos authentication for the pftp access to HPSS and we have extended the maximum ticket lifetime to 6 weeks to make this access method more convenient.  

If you want to have a ticket with the maximum lifetime please specify the number of days at ticket creation like this:

kinit -AV -l 42d

Without the lifetime parameter you will get the default lifetime of one week with the option of renewal as described in https://www.dkrz.de/up/systems/hpss/pftp-with-kerberos

Best regards,
DKRZ
