File Server Migration – December 2013

Purpose

This purpose of this article is to help you connect to your CAS-FS file shares after the planned migration.

Background

CASIT is migrating its file servers to new hardware in December. This move is necessary because the current hardware is nearing its end of life and cannot be expanded further. The new file storage infrastructure will be capable of continuing to expand smoothly, and will be much more resilient to data loss. During a scheduled hardware upgrade, file shares and home folders will be offline. Most network drives will have to be re-mapped after the upgrade.

Most CAS networked file shares and home folders will be inaccessible starting at 12:01AM on December 21. The hardware upgrade, data move, and testing will be complete by December 25 and users can reconnect starting December 26.

Audience

The audience for this article are those who are comfortable remapping drives on their own. If you are *not comfortable*, and/or you would prefer a CASIT Tech to help you remap your file shares, please email us at casit@uoregon.edu or call us directly at 346-2388.

If you desire to remap your drives on your own, read on.
