Description

Fermilab is shutting down AFS around May 2016.
Standard user .shrc and .bashrc files get UPS from AFS.

We need to decide to do nothing, or change this to /grid/fermiapp
This involves the users, via Liaisons.

#1 Updated by Arthur Kreymer over 3 years ago

See draft CHG000000010959

The choices seem to be :

  • Do nothing, and let users manage this in their .bashrc/.cshrc .
    • trivial to implement
    • likely large impact with lots of user education.
  • Install this for all users in place of the old AFS code .
    • not too hard
    • requires root access to login area
    • maximal uniformity
  • Modify the AFS setup script to remove itself automatically .
    • Not too hard
    • no root access
    • very non-uniform, works only until AFS shuts down.
  • Do we do both .bashrc and .cshrc ?

(Adding Andy Romero as a watcher...)

I have a prototype script (attached) to actually convert people's .profile/.login/.shrc/.cshrc files if we have permission to do so.

If we want to run it over people's home directories en-masse, we need to
have someone with sufficient privileges run it and add a loop to run it
in each home directory...
