The next two weeks are designated for you to do exactly that -- move
files by hand, and select which things to abandon. This is strongly
encouraged! Once you're done and ready to abandon other files please
make a note to that effect on the migration progress page (
If in two weeks there's no note on that page and I see that your eqiad
shared dirs are still empty then I'll make a unilateral copy of everything.
(There's one caveat here: Because the file copies are going to take a
super long time, I've already started a job that will haphazardly copy
files over to eqiad and stow them in obviously-named subdirs, e.g.
'glustercopy' or 'nfscopy'. Those are there to save time as part of a
future migration... you should leave them be but otherwise ignore them.
If you opt for self-migration then you or I can just erase those dirs
later on if you have them.)
I hope this makes sense! Please let me know if I'm still being unclear.
