File Storage Space Access

The CSE Department maintains a NAS (Network Attached Storage) device on which all of our users have file storage space. This space is typically accessed in the instructional environment via UNIX home directories and the Z:\ drive in Windows. The same space may be accessed from computers running Windows on the research network by mapping a drive to \\\<username>. Users should use their Windows credentials to connect, prefacing their username with cse\.

A note for Windows Vista/7 Users: Tighter security settings in Windows Vista and Windows 7 may interfere with Samba connections. If you have trouble mapping your Z:\ drive from a computer running Windows Vista or 7 on the research netwrok, please check your Local Security Policy. From Control Panel, choose Administrative Tools ⇒ Local Security Policy. From there, open Computer Configuration ⇒ Windows Settings ⇒ Security Settings ⇒ Local Policies ⇒ Security Options. Then, ensure that "Network Security: LAN Management" is set to "Send LM & NTLM – use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated".
