Connecting to Shared Directories on the \\MINSKY.MED.UNC.EDU server from office/lab/equipment/home desktop Windows computers

For detailed example notes: Connecting to shares  (e.g. connection to \\minsky.med.unc.edu\slaney, \\minsky.med.unc.edu\cf-center, \\minsky.med.unc.edu\alcohol-studies, \\ad.unc.edu\med.bcas, \\ad.unc.edu\med\cf, \\som-fs.med.unc.edu\cf,  \\minsky.med.unc.edu\vs120,  \\minsky.med.unc.edu\vs200

Note: From off campus first connect to campus by running UNC VPN.   UNC VPN (Cisco AnyConnect) requires an Onyen username and password along with a second password provided by the DUO phone app

Note: Paths greater than 247 characters and filenames+paths greater than 260 characters are not supported, especially by Explorer/Computer/ImageJ.  This is a limitation imposed by Windows and the third party software.

Quick notes:

 

 

 

 

Common problems:

  • "mhmicroscopy\" not added before your-user-name
  • "ad\" not added before your Onyen name
  • Onyen (AD domain) password has been changed.  This makes the cached password associated with the drive letter out of date
  • MHmicroscopy domain ("slaney" or "minsky") password has changed making cached password associated with the drive letter out of date
  • Failure to use \ (a forward slash, /, cannot be used instead of a backslash \ )

    Common Fixes:

  • Right click on drive letter and choose disconnect, log out of windows, logon again and remap the drive letter
  • Right click on drive letter and choose disconnect, and remap the drive letter
  • Harass Michael for assistance
