Connecting to P&N file shares (home and lab directories)

CONNECTING TO YOUR PERSONAL P&N FILE SPACE

These instructions are for connecting to your home directory in P&N as well as lab shared directories that you have access to.   These instructions will map you to the "psych"  directory.  Once you've connected to psych, you'll see your personal home directory under the "home" folder, and your various lab directories will be listed at the same folder level as the "home" directory.

If you are connecting from off campus, you you will need to  to  dial into the University VPN before connecting to your lab space.

Please see our VPN setup instructions.

REMOVING OLD STORED PASSWORDS

Using the EXPLICIT mapping if GENERIC mapping doesn't work

WINDOWS 10  INSTRUCTIONS

Launch File Explorer on the Taskbar or Start menu, and select This PC (formerly My Computer) in the Navigation Pane.  You can also do a search for "this pc" in the search box if you can't find it.

Once the "this pc" window pops up:

Click the Map Network Drive button in the ribbon menu at the top  (top left tool bar), then select map network drive.  (This is under the computer tab, which should open automatically when you go to "this pc.")

Select relevant pathway from dropdown menu; you will enter this in the folder box:

\\win.duke.edu\trinity\psych

Note: You can choose any available letter; we suggest drive G for the above path.

A little login box will appear asking you to  authenticate.  In the username field, type win.duke.edu\netid  *ALL ON  ONE LINE* like this:

win.duke.edu\mielke
    

In the password field, type your netid password.

To connect every time you sign in to your computer, select the Reconnect at sign-in check box.

Tap or click Finish.

AFTER you’ve mapped the drive successfully for the first time per the above instructions, you can actually make a shortcut to the lab folder on your desktop.  To do this, click on the icon for your computer so that you are in the explorer window. Find the drive letter with the lab name next to it. Then, simply right-click on the drive letter that shows up  and select “send to….desktop (create shortcut.)

If you want, you can create additional mappings for other drive letters.  For example, if you want to map drive H to your home directory, you would follow the above instructions but typing the following for the path:

\\win.duke.edu\trinty\psych\home\netid

Where “netid” is your Duke netid. 

Again, we suggest "Drive H" for your personal home directory in psych, based on convention.

The same can be done for lab spaces.  To map to a lab, you would map to:

\\win.duke.edu\trinity\psych\Labname

For example,

\\win.duke.edu\trinity\psych\StraumanLab

We often map specific lab directories to "Drive Z."

WINDOWS 7  INSTRUCTIONS

Open Computer by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Computer.

If you are currently mapped to any old server connections on your machines (i.e. \\tts-nas-02.win.duke.edu), open the COMPUTER Icon
so that you can see the connected files in Windows File Explorer.  Find the old connection, right-click and select "disconnect."  If you have shortcuts on your desktop to the old server connection, you can also drag them to the trash.

Click the Tools menu, and then click Map Network Drive

Under drive,  select drive G if available. (It really doesn't matter what letter of the alphabet you pick, though, as long as it is available.)

Under folder, type the path to your home directory:

              \\win.duke.edu\trinity\psych    

Click the button “reconnect at login.”  (If you select this option and you are not working on a departmental machine, you will get an error the next time you reboot saying "could not connect to all network drives."  You can choose whether you want to select this as an option or not. For most folks using Windows 7, the message at startup is not a big deal.)

Click next...

A little login box will appear asking you to  authenticate.  In the username field, type win.duke.edu\netid  *ALL ON  ONE LINE* like this:

win.duke.edu\mielke
    
In the password field, type your netid password 

AFTER you’ve mapped the drive successfully for the first time per the above instructions, you can actually make a shortcut to the lab folder on your desktop.  To do this, click on the icon for your computer so that you are in the explorer window. Find the drive letter with the lab name next to it. Then, simply right-click on the drive letter that shows up  and select “send to….desktop (create shortcut.)

If you want, you can create additional mappings for other drive letters.  For example, if you want to map drive H to your home directory, you would follow the above instructions but typing the following for the path:

\\win.duke.edu\trinty\psych\home\netid

Where “netid” is your Duke netid. 

The same can be done for lab spaces.  To map to a lab, you would map to:

\\win.duke.edu\trinity\psych\Labname

For example,

\\win.duke.edu\trinity\psych\RichmanLab

 

MAC USERS

 

If you have any shortcuts to the old server connection (if it has TTS-NAS in the name), you'll want to remove these connections from your side bar or dock.

 1.  From the mac main menu, select "GO" and then "connect to server."

2.  In the box where it says "server address," type in the following,      

           smb://win.duke.edu/trinity/psych

3.  Click "next." A little login box will appear asking you to authenticate.  In the username field, type your neitd, prefixed by WIN.DUKE.EDU, like this:

WIN.DUKE.EDU\netidhere

Make sure that WIN.DUKE.EDU is in all caps, and that you have the slash pointing the right way.

Once you have authenticated, you will see a list of ALL the folders under Psych.  LOOK for the folder named HOME.  You will see your personal directory under this HOME folder.

To make the navigation process easier, highlight your home folder with your mouse and then go up to the "File" menu in the finder window. Then, Select "add to sidebar" so that your lab folder will be visible under the "places" section of your sidebar.  You can also drag your folder to the dock if you want. Whatever makes it easier for you....

REMOVING OLD PASSWORDS

If you have stored your password so that it automatically logs you in, you may need to remove and reset it.  This is especially true if you were connecting to the "OLD" P&N files space (tts-nas02) and need to connect to win.duke.edu/trinity/psych due to the server migration on 5/23/16.

Removing passwords--WINDOWS

Click the Start Menu icon in the lower left corner of your Windows screen and type "credential manager" in the search text box that appears right above it. You should then see the Credential Manager show up in the list of results. Click the Credential Manager icon in this list.

In the Credential Manager window locate any cached credentials that have the term "tts-nas" in the name. Expand the details for the  credential by clicking the arrow to the right of the name.  Then, click "remove from "vault" for that item.

Removing passwords--MAC

From the FINDER Menu, go to GO then UTILITIES then  KEYCHAIN ACCESS.  From the Keychain access menu, find the entry that references "tts-nas"  and delete it.

 

Using the EXPLICIT mapping if the GENERIC mapping doesn't work

Sometimes users are unable to connect using win.duke.edu/trinity/psych.   In this case, users are asked to map directly to NAS-04, the name of the file server where the P&N files reside.

For windows machines, connect using this path:

\\TTS-NAS-04.win.duke.edu\psych

For mac, use this path:

smb://TTS-NAS-04.win.duke.edu/psych

Follow the above instructions, just replacing the path.
