AFS is a distributed networked file system.


Useful commands

  • kinit - obtain kerberos ticket
  • fs listacl
  • fs setacl
  • kpasswd


Global for TOTEM

  • /afs/ (has daily backup)


  • ex. /afs/ AFS home directories (backup, quota 50MB)
  • ex. /afs/ (without backup, personal scratch space - not for all users)



Remove unauthorized access

To protect the directory from eyes of unauthorized users you can always use the command:

fs setacl . -acl system:anyuser none

You can run it for every subdirectory:

find . -type d -exec fs setacl {} -acl system:anyuser none \;

List members of group:

All groups should have prefix cern: . To display members of zj group, type:

pts membership cern:zj

You can setup group ACLs using command:

find . -type d -exec fs setacl {} -acl cern:zj read \;
