SMB - For Windows and macOS users
For Windows and macOS users, the common folder can be mounted via an SMB share.
Each individual facility or research group has its own share:
|Facility||Path on GPFS||SMB Share Name|
For a pictured manual to map network drives, please refer to Data Access: Core FS. The steps are the same, just different share names have to be used for common.
Windows 7 EOL
Windows 7 will reach end of life on 2020-01-14, no security updates will be available after that point in time.
Access via SMB from Windows 7 hosts is therefore no longer supported.
NFSv4 - For Linux users
For Linux users on the beamline, common folder can be mounted read-only via NFSv4 without kerberos.
|Facility||Path on GPFS||NFS Export|
Restricted Mount Access
Access to the NFSv4 exports are restricted by IP subnet.
For PETRA III, the following subnets are allowed to mount the read-only common folder filesystem without kerberos:
Mounting via NFSv4 without Kerberos
Mounting the common folder requires root privileges. On Linux installations at the beamline, common is usually already mounted.
Please contact FS-EC (firstname.lastname@example.org) in case of problems.
mount without krb5
mount -o ro,nfsvers=4.0,sec=sys,hard <NFS Export> <local mountpoint>
mount -o ro,nfsvers=4.0,sec=sys,hard asap3.desy.de:/common/flash /common
Additional configuration is required on the client machine, the setup for this is out of scope for this documentation.
