Cloud - New path for home directories

Nov 22, 2021

Dear users,

we will change the path of the home and scratch directories on our upcoming system Levante and all other systems (e.g. virtual machines). On Wednesday December 1st, 2021 we will change all user accounts to comply with the new paths. For easier transition, we have set up links on Mistral to allow access to your home directory on both the old path (/pf/, /home/dkrz/, /home/mpim/, /home/zmaw/) and the new path.

The new structure looks like (same for /scratch):

/home/a/a123456
/home/b/b123456
/home/g/g123456
/home/k/k123456
/home/m/m123456
/home/u/u123456

With the start of Levante the old directory structure /pf/... will be not available anymore on the new system and you may need to adapt your scripts and batch jobs for Levante.

Cloud users with own VMs have to set up the needed structure on their own. 

Best regards,
DKRZ
