You can map a network drive to [[Storage01]] using the smbmount utility. You can run the following command as a regular user:
+
-
$ smbmount //storage01/share /path/to/mount -o username=myusername,workgroup=campus,uid=mylocalusername,ip=storage01.stevens.edu
+
-
* //storage01/share is the mount location.  Replacing 'share' with your [[Campus Domain Account|domain username]] will map the network drive to your personal storage space. Please read the article on [[Storage01]] for other possible locations.
+
-
* /path/to/mount is the location you want to map/mount the network drive at.  You can map it to a mountpoint in your current directory such as 'mnt' by not using any slashes (full pathname is also fine)
+
-
* username=myusername - myusername should be replaced with your [[Campus Domain Account|domain username]].
+
-
* workgroup=campus - this specifies the domain to check your username and password against, leave it like this
+
-
* uid=mylocalusername - mylocalusername should be the name of your linux user (whoami will tell you this if you are unsure).  This is the user who owns the directory/mountpoint you are mounting/mapping to.
+
-
* ip=storage01.stevens.edu - this specifies an "ip address" (a [[FQDN]] in this case) to locate [[Storage01]] by.  Leave as-is.
+
-
When you run this command, you should see a prompt similar to:

-
Type in your [[Campus Domain Account|domain password]] and press enter.  You will now be able to access the file stored on storage01 at the mountpoint you specified.

Network Drives are basically hard drives that can be accessed over a network. Stevens maintains several Network Drives. They are made available to the Students and Faculty at Stevens. The computer that hosts or holds the Drives is called storage01. To map a network drive requires some authentication, specifically the Stevens Login Information.

Available Drives

More Information about the Available Drives can be found on the storage01 page.

  • public - Matlab, Solidworks, Uniprint.
  • ms - Microsoft software, Mathematica, Adobe Acrobat, etc.
  • personal - Your personal web space and files.
  • groups - For departments, organizations and clubs.
