Which server is hosting my $HOME?

There are multiple ways to find out which of our storage devices are servinng your $HOME:

Either use /mount/ on a head node by running this
mount | awk -F: "/$(whoami)/ {print \$1}"
or use our auto mount script on any Atlas node:
/etc/auto.home $(whoami) | awk -F'[ |:]' '{print $2}'

The result will tell you where your home is

you are on the HSM, but on the old meta data server
you are on the HSM, already on the new meta data server
you are on one of our good ol' Sun Thumpers
