OIT to retire Andrew File System

OIT is collaborating with campus IT units to retire the legacy Andrew File System AuriStor by Dec. 31. 

Migration plans are being developed for the various uses of AFS AuriStor. The plan is to consolidate the current AFS AuriStor home directory with the existing NCSU drive storage and enable access for Linux systems via the Network File System Version 4. To facilitate this transition, the quota for the NCSU drive has been increased from 5GB to 20GB. The new quota for the consolidated environment will remain after AFS AuriStor’s retirement. 

If you use AFS AuriStor to support teaching, research, web, applications, or other activities and do not have a migration plan, contact your local IT staff personnel or send an email to the project team.
