Files in Virtual DICE

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The guest user's files are in /disk/scratch/guest. This is a local directory in the virtual machine. It is never backed up so you should copy all important files from it to AFS. This is how to access your AFS space from the guest account:

  1. Make sure that the host machine currently has a working internet connection.
  2. Check that the Virtual DICE clock is correct - see Clocks and time.
  3. These commands should make AFS available:
    kinit -f user@INF.ED.AC.UK
    aklog

    where user is your DICE username.
