Samba Shares on Hurricane
By Jeff Conner
- Home: This share will be denoted by your user name. It will be your personal space on
hurricane. This directory will be
backed up once a week. To access
from a windows machine click on start, go to run and enter \\hurricane.la.asu.edu. From a Unix shell it will be your home
directory and will be located and /home/<username>.
- Share: This folder can be used by anyone in
the group to share data with other members of the group. For more information see the Share
write-up at http://activetectonics.asu.edu/LabDocs/share_info.htm. The folder can be found on hurricane
(through an ssh terminal) at /home/groups/share. It can also be found from a windows machine by going to the
start menu and clicking on run.
Enter "\\hurricane.la.asu.edu" and your username and password if prompted.
- Swgeonet: This
share is for the swgeonet group.
It contains data and information pertaining to that project. To access from a windows machine click
on start, go to run and enter \\hurricane.la.asu.edu. From a Unix shell it is located at
/home/group/swgeonet but is actually kept on cordillera.
- Software: This share contains group
software that is available to use.
The programs that we install on all of the computers are kept
here. To access from a windows
machine click on start, go to run and enter \\hurricane.la.asu.edu. From a Unix shell it is located at
Notes on Access:
When accessing these shares from a windows machine it is very important
that they be accessed individually and not from a unix shortcut. For example: If you need to access the share folder from a windows machine
click on start, select run and enter \\hurricane.la.asu.edu
and open the share folder. Do not
create a shortcut in your home drive on hurricane and try to navigate to the
share folder in windows through that.
The permissions are setup per share and if they are accessed via
shortcut on another share the permissions will be incorrect. Especially in the case of the share drive,
your peers will not be able to access the files you have placed there if you
access the share through a shortcut in your home drive. If you have any questions please contact
technical support for the group. The
hours for technical support can be found at http://activetectonics.asu.edu/calendar.html.
Accessing Shares Via SSH: In the software share I have placed two
programs for accessing the shares off campus. They are putty and SSH Secure shell. If you need assistance installing, downloading or using either of
these please contact technical support.
