Accessing Astronomy research storage mounts

Question

How to access research storage allocations that are mounted on Astronomy desktops and workstations.

Where is /n?

Environment

Astronomy desktops and workstations

Answer

Astronomy NFS research storage allocations are configured to mount within /nfs on Astronomy workstations. The actual mount point generally uses the uniqname of the research storage owner, and appears as follows: /nfs/uniqname. This configuration was set up as a part of the Ra migration process, replacing the previously used /n mount point. This was done to more closely match how other services, such as Great Lakes, mount nfs research storage allocations.

If the research storage you are looking for does not appear in /nfs, please send an email to lsait@umich.edu and we will work with you to get the mount configured.

Additional notes

The /nfs mount replaces the previously used /n mount point. If you require a symlink to /n due to specific links to that location in code, please let us know by emailing lsait@umich.edu.
