DataStore and Samba

DataStore

From a DICE machine you can access this filespace as follows:
From the Places menu select Connect to Server. A dialog box will appear. Here's an example of how to fill in the fields:

Server: csce.datastore.ed.ac.uk
Type: Windows Share	
Share: /csce/inf/users
Folder: /your username
Domain Name: ED
User Name: your username	

The password will be your Active Directory password. (Ask us for help if you don't know this or need it reset.)
If you prefer to access via command line

smbclient \\\\csce.datastore.ed.ac.uk\\csce -W ED -U your username  -D inf/users/your username 

The password will be your Active Directory password.

IS also provides instructions for accessing DataStore:

In these instructions, you should replace 'COLLEGE' with 'csce'. If you are asked for a password, you should use your University password, not your DICE one. Contact support if you are unsure of what this might be.

Mounting a Datastore Samba share using sshfs

IS provides these instructions:

For example, to mount your Datastore home path to a local directory in your DICE homedir, type the following (note the missing workaround=all):

mkdir ~/local directory
sshfs -o intr,large_read,auto_cache -oPort=22222 your username@csce.datastore.ed.ac.uk:csce/datastore/inf/users/your username ~/local directory

The password will be your Active Directory password.
To unmount, use:

 umount ~/local directory
