Carnegie provides multiple file servers for data storage. Homes provides limited home directory storage for user protected data. Data is Carnegie's primary data storage server for on-going scientific projects. For high-performance storage, please see information on the Lustre filesystem on Memex. For archive storage, please see information on Google Drive Unlimited.


To access Carnegie file servers:

  1. From a File Explorer window, right-click on "This PC" and select "Map network drive..."


  2. For a "Folder" enter in the server's hostname prefixed by "\\". If you know the share you want to access, you can add it at the end as "\sharename", otherwise you'll be shown a list of shares to choose from when you connect. See the example below for accessing Data.  Check the checkbox to "Connect using different credentials".  When ready, click on the "Finish" button"


  3. Enter your username as AD\username, then enter your password.  Optionally check the checkbox to have the computer remember your password so you don't have to enter it every time you connect.  Click on the "OK" button


  4. You are now connected
