Discontinuation of the DXUL tape archive

Jan 28, 2021

Dear users,

as announced today [1], DKRZ will move to a new archive management system around April 2021 (exact dates for the migration will be announced on a later date).

In this regard, we wanted to inform you in advance that we are not planning to migrate the complete DXUL archive [2], which contains legacy data created on HLRE-1, hurrikan and NEC SX-6 before 2010.

Please check if you still need data from the DXUL archive and make sure to copy or move the data to your project in the HPSS archive well before the migration. You can contact [Email protection active, please enable JavaScript.] in case you need help to move directories into an existing HPSS project.

Currently, the directory "/dxul" is at the same level as the "/hpss" directory in pftp or on xtape (read only).

"/dxul" does not follow the same, strict structure as "/hpss". The most likely place to check for old project data would be "/dxul/prj/".

It will no longer be possible to access the DXUL data after the archive migration.

If you have questions please contact [Email protection active, please enable JavaScript.]

Best regards,
DKRZ
