- your new home directory will be /homes/$USER, and is limited to 100MB and lives on backed up computers in OIT. Note that your old $USER and new GLUE $USER name don't need to be the same, but you will not be able to share data between the two. They are completely different users on a completely different computer set. This means all data disks will need to have their user permissions changed.
- your web space is not in ~/public_html but ~/../pub. The URL would be http://www.glue.umd.edu/~teuben .
Some system issues to be resolved
- there is no root access, each user that was given root permission can run "su"
- there is no rsync server running, which combined with the previous item, make our current RAID backup system a bit tedious to re-implement.
- where can things like /astromake go.
- cross-mounting all astro disks (the /n map, as well as the /backup map)
- mysql (for mediawiki and other things?)
- convert astro $USER to glue $USER permission. Kevin has a perl script.
- users who want to keep a special local home directory on a given machine?
Things we can keep
- mail server
- web server (but you cannot use $HOME/public_html, on the webserver we'll need some $USER space)
