An Introduction to AFS and it's Best Practices

Instructor: Alf Wachsmann

Location: 1320 Digital Computer Lab

Monday, May 24, 2010 from 9a to 5pm

Slides are available: "afskbpw" and "bestpractices".

Now that AFS has become available through an open source license, it is available to sites and IT groups of all sizes. Although the use of AFS is simple, setting up your own AFS servers can be a rather daunting task.

Our goal is to give you the knowledge and tools you need to be able to get going with your own AFS cell, or to improve upon the cell you've already started working with. We will provide as many examples as possible, but this is NOT a hands on class.

Topics include:

The day will be four 90 minute sessions with breaks in the morning and afternoon, plus a mid-day break for lunch.
