connect an external harddisk with >2TB space to stat1001
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Do we have an external hard disk in eqiad that has >2TB space and could be connected temp. to stat1001 to backup data and copy it back after a reinstall?

Or, alternatively is there any running server that has that much space and is in eqiad, then i would rsync data over there.. whatever is easier.

stat1004 is a new server just created with tons of space:

elukey@stat1004:~$ df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
udev             16G  4.0K   16G   1% /dev
tmpfs           3.2G  1.1M  3.2G   1% /run

fuse_dfs        1.3P  691T  599T  54% /mnt/hdfs

We could use it as temp backup rsyncing the stat1001's dirs. @Ottomata, anything against it?

Closing the task since we decided to use stat1004 and @Dzahn set up the necessary rsync modules.
