Servers with Local Home Directories

The following DICE servers will offer local home directories rather than AFS ones. This page was created as an action from the Operational Meeting of 23/11/11.

Infrastructure Servers


Managed Platform Servers

All of the MPU's DICE servers now have local home directories except for:

  • SSH servers - hogwood, dunlin
  • Build hosts (the ones you login to, not the PackageForge ones) - badger, otter, squirrel, rabbit
  • Development servers - district, circle, piccadilly, prague

Research & Teaching Servers


Services Servers

We think nearly all could be switched to localhome, but would need to check: www.inf, mail.inf, cvs.inf. Ones that don't need are self admin drupal machines, nescdrupal, dunk, ckanvm, possibly croxleyvm.

User Support Servers

The only possible candidate is venom, the RT server but not certain that this would be of much benefit. Most servers we look after are end-user compute servers so local home directories wouldn't be appropriate.
