Where to store the CST files?
In general you can start your simulation and store your files in your Windows Home
directory. In case you disk space is limited or exceeded you can request a so called
XXL directory. Please contact Melvin Alfaro (phone 4125) who will create it for you.
Your XXL directory is reachable via several drives (H, N, and S) in the WIN domain:
or via
or directly as a link from your Home directory
Change first to your xxl directory before you start CST Studio.
The colleagues from IT are taking care of the servers mpy28mws2 and mws3.
The periodic maintenance will be performed by IT as well. The next maintenance
date and time will be announced in the DESY newsgroup 'desy.computing'. It is also
possible to get the maintenance information by email. Please follow the given link for
