How To Share Files With Guest -- Only works on the Medical Center campus

  1. Staff files a ticket with MCIT to guest permission. Name and Kerberos ID of user are required.
  2. Email Michael and Yan a copy of the ticket confirmation. (We need to keep a list of all people who have access.)
  3. After MCIT replies that the ticket has been completed, user may connect using Kerberos ID and password.
  4. When user is done with project, file a ticket pulling their guest access.
  5. Email Michael and Yan a copy of the ticket confirmation. (We need to keep a list of all people who have access.)

Keep in mind that all files in the Guest directory are available to all registered users of the Guest directory.

Users should copy all files to their own secure server space and then delete from the Guest directory. Think of this as a "Park Till 5 AM" type of storage space.

Similarly, when we receive files from users, we should copy them to our secure directory and then delete from the Guest directory.

For Guests: How to connect

For PCs on the domain, user logs off and back on with their standard Kerberos and password. It will appear as the R: drive unless the user already has a share assigned to R:, in which case it may be mapped by pasting
\\shares\research\microscopycore
into the address bar of an open window

For PCs not on the domain (such as a common computer sitting in a lab), use
\\shares.nyumc.org\research\microscopycore
and when prompted to log in, precede username with nyumc\ (for example: nyumc\kerberos01)

For Macs use smb://shares.nyumc.org/research/microscopycore and use the same username syntax as a PC not connected to the domain.

You may also have to add "guestaccess" to the end as per smb://shares.nyumc.org/research/microscopycore/guestaccess

Or you could try this:
