Data storage

Radboud University employees have access to a number of network directories:

A map network drive installed as a home directory (also called user dir or U: drive), for storing personal stuff. You are the only one who can access this folder. A map network drive set up as a group directory (also called data storage facility or workgroup drive), where all the members of your group can read and write the files. The home directory is mounted as U: on standard PC's maintained by ISC. People who do not have standard PC's have to mount it themselves. Some examples:

Configuration

Note:

  • Windows will not save your credentials when you reboot your computer, not even if you check the checkbox

KDE

The the K Desktop Environment:

  • start Dolphin, the file manager.
  • Right-click the left column and choose Add entry.
  • Choose the location smb://cnas.ru.nl/FSW-Homedirs/u123456 replacing u123456 with your employee number.
  • Unselect "Only show when using this application" (Dolphin) and click OK
  • Enter your u-number preceded by ru.nl/ as username and your password
  • Your network place will now show up in all KDE applications.
  • You can do something similar for the group directory:

smb://cnas.ru.nl/WRKGRP/DCC

Linux and BSD

If you want your home directory to show up in all Linux applications (not just KDE) you must add it to your file system table. Your need root access (administrative privileges) for this.

  • Add the following line to /etc/fstab :

//cnas.ru.nl/FSW-Homedirs/u123456 /home/username/Homedir cifs iocharset=utf8,credentials=/home/username/.smbcredentials,gid=1000,uid=1000 0 0

  • replacing u123456 with your employee number and username with your Linux username. (twice!)
  • Make an empty home dir by typing : mkdir $HOME/Homedir
  • Make a file named $HOME/.smbcredentials containing the following

username=ru.nl/u123456 password=PASSWORD

  • replacing u123456 with your employee number and PASSWORD with your password.

Note that the above credential file syntax is no longer supported. In newer versions (Ubuntu > 14.04) of the cifs module you must use the following syntax: username=u123456 password=PASSWORD domain=ru.nl

  • You can do something similar for the group directory: //cnas.ru.nl/WRKGRP/DCC
