Effective Saturday, March 14, OSU will move to a higher level of response that continues the essential operations of the university, but seeks to reduce the frequency of interactions among students, faculty, staff and visitors throughout all university campuses, centers, facilities and operations. Our focus is on continued university operations and social distancing.
As of Friday, August 25 2017, the path to engineering home directories has been changed. This will break shortcuts and mapped networked drives on your personal computers and laptops.
Previously a home directory path looked something like this:
Now the new home directory path looks like this:
You will not be able to access your engineering home directory (often referred to as: stak drive, Z-drive, etc) using any shortcuts or mapped drives that used the old path.
You will need to update old shortcuts and mapped drives or create new ones, using the new path.
The required username and password needed to access your home directory has not changed and will be same as what you used before.
To update a mapped drive, you will have to remove the old one and re-map using the new path.
If you have saved the home directory path, you will need to remove it and save the new path.
Refer to Accessing Engineering File Space using OS X SMB Command for steps on how to connect to your home directory.
To create new shortcuts refer to the documentation pages for accessing the home directory:
