How is AFS used at the College of Engineering?

All College of Engineering students, faculty, and staff may request a home directory from ITS on a U-M AFS file server (in the umich.edu cell). ITS refers to this service as AFS Personal Storage. These are used as home directories on CAEN Linux computers, and are located at /afs/umich.edu/user/u1/u2/uniqname, where u1 and u2 are the first two letters of your U-M uniqname.
