Sync up the new labs NFS project filesystem with the live one
Closed, ResolvedPublic


This is, essentially, a long-running rsyncs from /srv/project to /mnt on labstore1001, that will be followed by unmounting both filesystems and swapping them before restarting NFS.

oh, so is the new backedup file system going to be on /mnt?

No, it will take the old volume's place at /srv/project. /mnt is only used during the copy process because they (obviously) need to both be mounted.

Ah fair enough :)

This has now started.

This is taking slightly longer than expected, with the maps project being the stalling point. The copy should be over in a few hours, I'll advise at that time whether it is still a reasonable timeframe to switch or whether it is better to do it tomorrow morning.

Bump... What is the status on this? I'm assuming this is the reason that when I SSH into labs I'm 'technical-13@labs-bastion-01~' instead of 'technical-13@tools-login' (or whatever it was) and the reason that xTools is refusing to stay up and running. Thanks.

No, the "change" in the host name (actually, you are connecting to a different host now) was due to adding new bastion hosts for the Tools project; cf. @yuvipanda's mail at I think that neither the bastion host change nor the NFS copy here can have any effect on a tool's web service.

The copy completed successfully over the weekend so I will be rescheduling a switch for today.

coren set Security to None.
