Overview of the Rstor/AFS migration

Research Computing is migrating accounts from Rstor/AFS to DartFS. People who have Discovery accounts as well as Rstor/AFS accounts will also be migrated during this time frame.

The major changes that users will see from this migration are:

  • You will log in using your Dartmouth (NetID) username and password. This is the same name/password pair that you use to access email and other campus systems.
  • You will be able to directly access all your files from your desktop (Macintosh, Windows, Linux) computers.
  • You will have a single home directory on all Research Computing Computers including the Discovery cluster.
  • Faster file system performance and more stable systems as compared to AFS/Rstor.
