Shared Group File Space

A shared group file storage area is available for use by members of the Database Group (all those that are in the UNIX group dbg on DICE). This is accessible via various mechanisms:

UNIX File System
The simplest method of accessing the shared file storage area is via the UNIX filesystem. It is accessible via the /group/project/dbg filesystem hierarchy on any DICE machine.

Windows SMB/CIFS Share
For Windows and Mac OS X clients possibly the most suitable access method is via the Windows SMB/CIFS protocol (samba). Not that this access method is only available from within the Informatics network for security reasons. The notation used to access via this protocol varies depending on the client.
  • On OS X connect to server smb:// then navigate to project/dbg.
  • On a Windows client enter \\\group then navigate to project\dbg.

This method is the best option for accessing the shared storage area from outside the University of Edinburgh computer networks. Most Linux and OS X clients will have command line tools for accessing files via SFTP and SCP as part of their SSH software stack. There are also a number of very good graphical SFTP and SCP tools such as Fugu and WinSCP. Those looking for an enhanced command line client should look at LFTP. The url used to access files should be: s although different clients have different methods of inputing this information.
