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.
Create a "onedrive" directory somewhere within your scratch space directory.
mkdir -p -m 700 /scratch/jc012345/onedrive
Modify your environment by loading the onedrive module.
module load onedrive
Authenticate with OneDrive:
Issue the command
You should get a response something like:
[jc012345@ln01 ~]$ onedrive Authorize this app visiting: https://..... Enter the response uri:
Enter the response uri:prompt. You should receive a message that indicates successful authentication.
Now it's time to configure your use of
onedrive on HPC. The following is very similar to a configuration that has been tested by HPC staff for use of OneDrive as an archive for files on HPC.
mkdir -p ~/.config/onedrive cat <<EOF >~/.config/onedrive sync_dir = "/scratch/jc012345/onedrive" skip_file = "~*|.~*|*.tmp" skip_dotfiles = "true" skip_symlinks = "true" upload_only = "true" no_remote_delete = "true" remove_source_files = "false" EOF
To confirm your configuration (may be larger than the contents of your configuration file), execute
sync_dir" you configured - e.g., to move all *.dat files in your current working directory, use
mv *.dat /scratch/jc012345/onedrive.
Two aliases have been created for upload/download convenience. To upload files from your "
sync_dir", simply use the command:
NOTE: At the time of writing this document, HPC staff had only completed very limited testing of the Linux interface to OneDrive. The onedrive command can also be used to connect to SharePoint libraries.
