Reminder new HSM System: HPSS offline from Friday 15 Oct., 8 AM

Oct 15, 2021

Dear users,

As previously announced HPSS will go offline on tomorrow morning 15 October 2021 at 8 AM. The new HSM system “StrongLink” is planned to go online on Mon 25 October 2021. Access to all data in HPSS is no longer possible until then.

Please notice that the command line tool pftp will be replaced by slk. pftp will no longer work on the new system. All data in HPSS will be migrated to the new system. The prefix /hpss will be removed from the directory path of your files during the migration, so that you have to adapt your routines accordingly.

If you want to train the usage of slk, you can do so on our testing system. Please keep file number and file size low (< 10MB) on the test system because it is only a VM with limited disk space. Usage instructions are given here: https://docs.dkrz.de/doc/hsm/test_system.html

Best regards,
DKRZ
