Updated mechanism for copying files to Yellowstone

December 13, 2012

Yellowstone users can now copy (cp) any files they need from Bluefire’s /ptmp and GLADE file systems to the new Yellowstone GLADE file spaces. Instructions are available at http://www2.cisl.ucar.edu/resources/yellowstone/quick_start#copy_files.

Before migrating your files, consult the GLADE File Spaces for Yellowstone documentation at http://www2.cisl.ucar.edu/resources/glade_yellowstone.

Please do NOT use HPSS as a temporary staging area for migrating files; it is difficult to recover tape space even after the files are deleted. If your files are already in HPSS, however, you can access them from Yellowstone via HSI or HTAR.
