How to copy your data from an old scratch (Atlas, Venus, Taurus I) to our new scratch (Taurus II)

Currently there is only Taurus (I) scracht mountet on Taurus (II). To move files from Venus/Atlas to Taurus (II) you have to do an intermediate step over Taurus (I)

How to copy data from Atlas/Venus scratch to scratch of Taurus I (first step)

First you have to login to Taurus I.

ssh <username>@tauruslogin[1-2].hrsk.tu-dresden.de

After your are logged in, you can use our tool called Datamover to copy your data from A to B.

dtcp -r /atlas_scratch/<project or user>/<directory> /scratch/<project or user>/<directory>

e.g. file: dtcp -r /atlas_scratch/rotscher/file.txt /scratch/rotscher/
e.g. directory: dtcp -r /atlas_scratch/rotscher/directory /scratch/rotscher/

How to copy data from scratch of Taurus I to scratch of Taurus II (second step)

First you have to login to Taurus II.

ssh <username>@tauruslogin[3-5].hrsk.tu-dresden.de

After your are logged in, you can use our tool called Datamover to copy your data from A to B.

dtcp -r /phase1_scratch/<project or user>/<directory> /scratch/<project or user>/<directory>

Copying data from Atlas' /scratch to Taurus' /scratch

% dtcp -r /atlas_scratch/jurenz/results /taurus_scratch/jurenz/

% dtmv /venus_scratch/jurenz/results/ /taurus_scratch/jurenz/venus_results
