Permissions on RDF

Reported by: charlie Owned by: um_support
Component: Data Keywords:
Cc: Platform: ARCHER
UM Version: <select version>



Upon trying to create a new directory on the RDF (or indeed do anything there) from Archer, I keep getting permission denied errors. This is perhaps unsurprising, as my username has changed - on Hector it was cjrw09, so my RDF account was created using this. On Archer, however, it is now cjrw14. So I can't now do anything to my account on the RDF.

How can I resolve this?

The simplest thing to do is to create an ARCHER account with your HECToR username - that way you should see the cjrw09 RDF account from ARCHER. Its probably best to have just one account on ARCHER (to avoid these kinds of problems).

Um, right. Many thanks. Just wish I'd known that at the beginning, before starting a group of experiments! If I create a new Archer account, will you delete my old one?

Actually, further to my last message: please don't delete anything just yet, as once I have created a new account I will need to transfer everything in /home and /work from my old account to my new one.
