Reorganized NIRD storage

Dear NIRD User,

During the last maintenance we have reorganized the NIRD storage.

Projects have now a so-called primary site which is either Tromsø or Trondheim. Previously we had single primary site, Tromsø. This change had to be introduced to prepare coupling NIRD storage with Saga and the upcoming Betzy HPC clusters.

While we are working on a final, seamless access solution regardless of the primary site for your data, please use the following temporary solution:


To work closest to your data you have to connect to the login nodes located at the primary site of your project:

  • for Tromsø the address is unchanged and is login.nird.sigma2.no
  • for Trondhein the address is login-trd.nird.sigma2.no

To find out the primary site of your project log in on a login node and type:

readlink /projects/NSxxxxK

It will print out a path starting either with /tos-project or /trd-project.
If it starts with “tos” then use login.nird.sigma2.no.
If it starts with “trd” then use login-trd.nird.sigma2.no.
