Mapping Windows Drives
These instructions and examples were generated on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 system. If you're using a different distribution you have to do things a bit differently, but the values for the fields should be the same.
Follow these steps to map a windows drive on a RHEL5 workstation:
- Click 'Places' on the system menu bar
- Click 'Connect to Server...'
Use the examples below to set the correct options in the 'Connect to Server' dialog box. Replace <USER.NAME> with your Active Directory user name. Replace <DEPARTMENT_NAME> with with your department's Active Directory container name.
If you're not sure what your <DEPARTMENT_NAME> is, you can find it by logging into a Windows workstation and looking at the drive mappings.
