New Windows Network Drive (SMB) Access

March 8 – 31, 2018
Brown, Conte, Halstead, HalsteadGPU, Radon, Rice, Scholar, Snyder

All Windows network drives (SMB/CIFS access) for scratch filesystems on all clusters and home directories have moved!

You should change your mapped network drives to connect to: \\\my_cluster_name_here

Or for home directory access: \\\home

The old server,, will be retired at the end of this month, so please change your connections as soon as possible to avoid any disruption in service. This change will allow us to better maintain this type of service during cluster maintenance and upgrades in the future. More information on this is available in the cluster user guides:

Contact us if you have any questions. Thank you!
