Online session 2-4 ... https://unsw.zoom.us/j/89169783336
I'll talk a little, but most of the session is Oliver Tan talking about DBMS trends.
Find out what's hot in DBs in the Bay Area.
The systems support people sent us a list of people who they believe lost files last Thursday/Friday in the Great Home Directory Wipe-out.
These are the student IDs of the affected people:
5082514 5092597 5141959 5144842 5165035 5173587 5188650 5191527 5203199 5218457 5222381 5226987 5230245 5230272 5232091 5233467 5234037 5237012 5237481 5237709 5240946 5241257 5241763 5242063 5242233 5243151 5244460 5255375 5282222 5282736 5284122 5286846 5290495 5291376 5300831 5310085 5324608 5346267
We have given everyone on this list a 2 day extension, assuming that they lost a day recovering their files and then had to restore lost code.
If you lost files and your ID us not on this list, let us know. And don't try to claim you lost all your files if you didn't. We can check.
Of course, if you submitted before Thursday, this extension is irrelevant to you.
The ongoing issue causing files to be removed on CSE has now been resolved. There is no longer a chance that your files will be removed. BUT if you used vlab yesterday or today there is a possibility that, unfortunately, all files have been removed from your home directory.
Anyone who has used vlab over the last two days should login and check if they are effected.
If you are effected and don't have a local backup of your files the best best is to use the tkrestore command to get a backup of your files from Wednesday night. Instruction here .
If you are missing your assignment 2 and have used give please email the class account and we can send your your most recent submission.
If you are having issues with tkrestore please email email@example.com for assistance. Note that assistance might not be provided until Monday as there are a number of students and staff effected.
We should be able to get a list of effected students, an extension to assignment 2 will be provided to those effected.
Based on the file deletion mess from yesterday, I think you would be very wise to set up your home computer so that you can work locally during the exam. You will still need web access to CSE to look at the questions, and download the work files, but apart from that, the only time you need to access the CSE servers is to submit your answers.
If you don't have a C compiler and standard POSIX libraries on your home machine, it might be worth investigating how to get them. Maybe not this week, but soon. You could check whether you have a usable C programming environment by trying to get the Assignment 2 code to run locally.
There is an ongoing issue with vlab being unable to connect to the CSE file servers, this means that vlab can look like your files have been deleted.
We have no reason to believe that any files are actually missing. They are just inaccessible.
Turns out they are actually missing.
Three options to recover
