There are alternative methods of performing most operations previously performed using the Jeeves service. This page describes where to find these alternatives.
Changing your AFS volume quota
The fs command exists on facilitated Linux systems. The following command will show current quota use for a volume:
fs lqFor example:
% fs lq /afs/cs/user/bovik Volume Name Quota Used %Used Partition user.bovik 50000 42766 86% 59%
The following command will set the quota for a volume:
remctl afs volume quota
remctl afs volume quota /afs/cs.cmu.edu/user/bovik 50000
will set the quota for /afs/cs.cmu.edu/user/bovik to 5 GB.
The AFS volumes and quotas page has more information about AFS volume types and quotas.
AFS account operations
AFS accounts will not exist by default for instances other than the null instance (for example, bovik.root). In order to add this instance to an AFS ACL, an AFS account will need to be created for that instance. Please contact the SCS Help Desk by sending email to email@example.com to have AFS accounts created or defined.
Creating new Kerberos instances
The Instance Manager should be used to create new Kerberos instances and change Kerberos passwords, if known. If you do not remember your Kerberos password, please contact the Help Desk to have it reset. More information about using the Instance Manager to create instances and change passwords is available on the using the Kerberos Instance Manager page.
