Issue with moving files to scratch space

Hi Yann,

I tried to apply the few steps you mentioned to migrate the scratch directory, but despite having no issues during the execution of those lines, I did not manage to get it done properly. In the end, I am unable to delete the scratch.o directory, and I’m not convinced the symbolic link is right.

Could you please create a “good” scratch directory in my home ? (username : galanay)

Dear Aymeric,

inf your home directory, you have two folder that seems to be related to scratch:

/home/users/g/galanay/scratch.o -> /srv/beegfs/scratch/users/g/galanay/

Here is what I did (as yourself):

[galanay@master ~]$ mv scratch.o scratch
[galanay@master ~]$ mv scratch_temp/* scratch
[galanay@master ~]$ rmdir scratch_temp
[galanay@master ~]$ ls -lad scratch
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 36 Jun 18 15:06 scratch -> /srv/beegfs/scratch/users/g/galanay/


Perfect, thanks a lot!
