Backup and Archive will be available after the shutdown of SuperMUC Phase 2.
Access Policy to the Tape archive
The access policy to the tape archive on SuperMUC-NG differs from the policy on SuperMUC. Access rights on SuperMUC were granted to individuell users, whereas on SuperMUC-NG the rights are granted to the particular projec (only the users who wrote the data could access it).
- Permissions to access the data will now be granted to all users of a project i.e., all users in a group can retrieve data from other users of the project group.
- The previous policy was that only the users who wrote the data could access it.
- If you project is for example ‘pr12ab’, you can see the members of this group by
getent group pr12ab-d
- You have to add the project in the dsmc commands e.
dsmc q ar “/gpfs/work/p12ab/us12ab5/*“ –se=p12ab
If the new policy is not appropriate for you, the master user/project manager must put a request to the Servicedesk for SuperMUC-NG. We will then restrict the access only to the master user/project manager of the project. However, all other user in the project group will have no access.
More details will be available after the final switch from SuperMUC Phase 2 to SuperMUC-NG
