Shared folders of each research group are located to the NETAPP storage and they are configured with backup. We will introduce to the Windows browser the resource address: \\disk.dtic.upf.edu\research_group.
We will see all available folders inside root address: \\disk.dtic.upf.edu.
HPC'S folders and datasets are located to the LENOVO storage and they are not configured with backup. We will introduce to the Windows browser the resource address: \\samba.ccp.upf.edu\datasets\research_group.
We will see all available folders inside root address: \\samba.ccp.upf.edu.
Once typed, we’ll be prompted for the password. We can also choose to store the password in our computer so that we don’t have to type it every time. It is essential write the username with CCP\.
Once the server checks yours credentials a file browser will be displayed. This method will momentarily map the drive. Once you close the window the map will disappear and you will have to map it again.
Select "My Computer", right-click it and select "Map Network Drive", as shown in the image:
Name the "Drive" field with the letter we want to assign as the reference of the drive (as a general rule, use Z, X, W, V as they won’t probably be assigned). It’s not possible to use a letter that it’s already in use on our PC, for example C, D, A ... The 'folder' file must point to the server that runs the network disk.
For NETAPP's shared folders: \\disk.dtic.upf.edu\research_group.
In case of datasets located in LENOVO storage: \\samba.ccp.upf.edu\datasets\research_group or your cluster home: \\samba.ccp.upf.edu\home.
Before clicking "Finish" we must click on "Connect with a different username". Optionally we can click on "Reconnect at logon". This way the system will remember our map settings and the drive.
In the window "Connect As..." we should use our research user (CCP/) to provide the username and the password as shown in the image. Then, click OK and click the "Finish" button on the "Map Network Drive" window. We would be able to connect to three different network drives.
