Koronis data migration

On March 17, 2014 Koronis was decommissioned. MSI has created a temporary secondary copy of Koronis data on the global storage platform (Panasas). This data will be available until May 1, 2014. If you want to migrate any of your data to your home directory, you must do so before the May 1 deadline. MSI has made copies of the Koronis home directories, all project spaces and the uv1000 scratch. If you believe you need data from other koronis storage spaces, please let us know as soon as possible. Any data users wish to save should be copied back to their home directories by the May 1 deadline. If additional quota space is needed on the global file system please contact help@msi.umn.edu. All copies of Koronis data will be unavailable after the May 1 deadline.

Transfer files from Koronis

Location

The copy of Koronis data can be found at /panfs/roc/koronis_migration/ . The following top-level subdirectories are available:

home - /panfs/roc/koronis_migration/home
project? - /panfs/roc/koronis_migration/project?  [where ? is a number from 1 to 9, project1 for example]
uv1000_scratch - /panfs/roc/koronis_migration/uv1000_scratch

Koronis files will not be transfered automatically and the copy is only available until May 1, 2014. It will therefore be necessary to move any Koronis files desired from the temporary location, /panfs/roc/koronis_migration/  to a new location. There are a couple strategies that can be used to move files from the temporary location, each described below.

The below procedures can be followed on either login.msi.umn.edu or the system you will be transferring files for. 

Create a subdirectories

This is the simplest way, as it copies all files without needing to handle any conflicts. The example below moves the contents of a koronis home directory into a new directory called 'koronis/home' and then moves the contents of a directory in project2 into a new directory called 'koronis/project'.   user should be replaced with your username. file should be replaced with the appropriate file name. directory  should be replaced with the appropriate directory name:

mkdir ~/koronis
mkdir ~/koronis/home
rsync -avz  /panfs/roc/koronis_migration/home/user      ~/koronis/home
    
mkdir ~/koronis/project
rsync -avz /panfs/roc/koronis_migration/project2/directory     ~/koronis/project
    

Copy files and directories individually

If you have only a few directories or files you wish to keep from Koronis, you can simply copy those over, assuming there is no file or directory with the same name already in your home.  The below commands will overwrite any such existing files or directories; ensure that the name is not already in use before copying.

You can use the 'cp' command to copy individual files:

cp  /panfs/roc/koronis_migration/home/user/file  ~/
    

The rsync command is recommend for copying directories, as it is restartable and more flexible than cp. If your rsync transfer is interrupted, simply run the command again; files already transferred will be skipped.

rsync -avz  /panfs/roc/koronis_migration/home/user/directory  ~/
