File Server Migration

Using CAS-FS

After the migration, connecting to and using the new CAS-FS fileserver is very similar to the old fileserver. For most users, only the name of the server has changed.  To connect to a file share on the new CAS-FS system, perform the following:

 

For Windows PCs:

1.)    Right-click on My Computer and choose Map network drive….

2.)    Choose a Drive letter to use for the connection.

3.)    Enter the Folder address of the file share, \\cas-fs[#]\[Dept] where [#]  is replaced with the cas-fs number and [dept] is replaced with the department name. ex: \\cas-fs1\aei

4.)    Select to have the drive reconnect at login or use different credentials, if needed.

5.)    Click Finish and a new window should open with the file share data.

For Macintosh PCs:

1.)    Switch to the Finder application. On the menu bar select, Go then Connect to Server….

2.)    Enter the Server Address of the file share, for example: smb://cas-fs[#]/[Dept] where [#]  is replaced with the cas-fs number and [dept] is replaced with the department name.   ex:  smb://cas-fs1/aei

3.)    Click Connect and a new window should open with the file share data.
