HydroSci Samba Server
The HydroSci group has a Samba server that hosts the following data:
Two group workspaces - the hydrosci_ws share and the hydrosci_ws2 shares
This space is a group share for projects and information that anyone in the hydrosci group can use. By default all files and directories created in this space are read and writable by everyone in the hydrosci group. As such care should be taken in particular with operations such as deleting files and directories. This area is automatically backed up.
Personal shares - the hydrosci_pers share
This share contains directories for each user for their own network storage use. Each individual directory is only accessible by the user that owns it. This area is automatically backed up.
To get access to the HydroSci Samba Server please contact us. You will need to provide us with your Linux account username and ask for an account on the HydroSci Samba Server. Your password will be the same as your Linux account password.
Once you have a samba account you can mount the shares on your personal computer system. Below are instructions for Mac OSX, Windows 7 and Linux machines.
Mounting Samba Shares
Mac OS X
Select your Finder application
In the menu bar select Go > Connect to Server (or Command+K)
In the Server Address field type smb://hydroscismb.pmc.ucsc.edu
Click the Plus button to add this address to your list of Favorite Servers
Select the shared resource you would like to connect to
Enter your linux account name and password then press Connect
This will mount the shared samba directory on your system. If you would like to mount this share automatically each time you login, you can drag the shared mount icon into your Login Items pane within System Preferences > User Accounts > YOURUSERNAME.
Open your Computer in an Explorer window (not Internet Explorer)
In the menu bar select Map Network Drive
Select an appropriate drive letter in the Drive field
In the Server field type \\hydroscismb.pmc.ucsc.edu\hydrosci_ws
You can substitute one of the other samba shares (hydrosci_ws or hydrosci_ws2) to connect to a different shared space
Check the "Reconnect at logon" box if you want this share to automount each time you logon
Check the "Connect using different credentials" box
You should then be prompted for your Linux username and password
This will mount the shared samba directory on your system for easy access.
The shares are automatically mounted on the managed linux machines when you access their mount points. You don't need to perform any special mounting procedures
Mount points for these shares on the managed linux machines can be found at:
