New servers for home directories

This post is over 5 years old, it may be out of date.

The home directory/U:-disc servers pile and bundle, that are more than four years old, are being replaced by new servers with the name home1 and home2. Moving the home directories (U:-discs) of users is scheduled outside of working hours. Special arrangements will be made for groups of users who would be troubled by this, e.g. having Outlook .pst files on the network or using the compute cluster. During the move, the minimal quota for the Science home directory / U:-disc is enlarged from 2 GB to 5 GB. Workstations/PCs might need a reboot if successful login to Ubuntu proves to be impossible.
