PETAL: 1.4 Linux client access

The PETAL archive is accessible from all University clients via kerberized NFSv4. For the School of Earth and Environment (SEE), the access point is:


On the PETAL server, the archive root point is /export/archive/spectra2. When a user requests storage on the system, a directory with the research project name needs to be created in this subdirectory. Users can then access and use it with normal Linux commands. For example:

cd /nfs/petal/my_project # this will automount the archive directory under the client /nfs folder
cp -aruv ~/data /nfs/petal/my_project # data will be copied from the data folder to the archive storage allocation

Users outside of the School of Earth and Environment will require the PETAL cache to be set up on a machine which they have access to. Typically, an entry has to be added to local ‘automount’ maps like:

petal -fstype=nfs4,sec=krb5,hard,intr
