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:
 
-
Password:
 
-
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.
