- Officially, JCU's OneDrive for Business platform hasn't been provisioned for housing research data, however JCU staff/students may choose to place their research data on OneDrive.
- OneDrive software installed on HPC is NOT provided or supported by Microsoft. Technology Solutions staff do not use OneDrive on HPC - two of us have successfully run the commands below once.
- HPC storage does NOT exist to serve as a sync client to your OneDrive files. The OneDrive software on HPC should only be used to upload files on HPC to OneDrive - e.g., for data protection or archiving (long-term). In future, HPC may not provide any long-term storage options in-house - HPC cluster storage may be "scratch space" only (routine deletion of old files may be configured).
Extensive documentation on the linux onedrive connector capabilities can be found at https://github.com/abraunegg/onedrive/blob/master/docs/USAGE.md - the information provided below is a very brief introduction for getting started. At the time of writing this document, HPC staff had only completed very limited testing of the Linux interface to OneDrive. The onedrive command doesn't have the capabilities provided by Windows/MacOS OneDrive clients, but it allows you to copy files housed on HPC to OneDrive.
A command line based interface to OneDrive has been installed on HPC cluster servers. There is some configuration required before you start using the command(s) provided.
