Juno is one of the oldest UNIX machines at SLAC, and SCS has been trying to phase it out for the past year. All system directories had already been moved off, and we were working on the home and group directories that remained.
It became clear that it would take an extraordinary effort to revive Juno, possibly requiring the purchase of expensive out-of-stock replacement parts. The decision was made to move all data off of Juno to a temporary holding place on another server to give users the opportunity to move their files to a permanent storage location.
We considered moving all home directories to AFS, but on examination there were too many cases such as filename collisions with files already in AFS to make this practical. We instead are providing a temporary repository and a command to move the files yourself so that you can resolve any conflicts during the move.
Files will remain on the temporary repository until September 30, 1999. After that time they will be moved to a morgue; they will still be accessible, but not as easily restored as they will be until then.
Your temporary home directory is read-only, so it is only useful to log in long enough to do the movetoafs command. We did place a copy of your .forward file there to allow the continued receipt of mail.
Q: I can log in, but I can't get movetoafs to accept my password
A: There are two passwords that you can use: one will let you log into UNIX and will let you use NFS space, the other will do that plus let you use your AFS space. The former is variously called your UNIX password, your YP or NIS password, or (incorrectly) your NFS password; the later is called your AFS password. If these two passwords are different for you, or you cannot remember what your AFS password was set to, you can log in but not use AFS, including movetoafs. You will need to go in person to the SCS Help Desk with picture ID to get your password reset. If you are not on site, call the Help Desk at 650-926-HELP for instructions.
Q: I can't get logged in from my NCD terminal
A: You could have someone else login, and then from one of their terminal windows use ssh or telnet to connect as yourself.
ssh -l myname floraThen you can run movetoafs from that window. Another method on an NCD is to press the Setup key to get the Console menu, and select "New Telnet" from the "Terminals" menu. From there you will get a linemode login.
Q: I can't get logged in on X Windows from NT
A: X Windows won't work with the temporary home directory. From the Windows Start Menu choose Start->Programs->Accessories->Telnet then use the Connect menu item. From there you can do a linemode login to do the movetoafs command.
Q: I can't get logged in from a CDE login screen
A: From the login window, select the Options button, which will drop down a menu. Select Line Mode Login from that menu. You should then be able to login on the console and run movetoafs. After an hour or so to allow the change to propagate through the system you will be able to log in using the CDE desktop.
