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:


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

On the PETAL server, the normal 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
