Access MOGON Filesystems w/ Linux

The filesystems of MOGON can also be mounted under Linux. In this article we explain how to mount the GPFS and Lustre filesystems of MOGON.

Overview

GPFS (Home/Project)

Host: mogonsmb.zdv.uni-mainz.de
Share
<username> Home directory
project Project directories of all groups except those that have a seperate share (atals,icecube,na62,tronhpc,jgu-cbdm)

Lustre (Project/Scratch)

Host: mogon2smb.zdv.uni-mainz.de
Share
scratch Lustre scratch filesystem
project Project directories of all groups except those that have a seperate share (atlas,icecube,na62,himexp,lattice)

Virtual Private Network

If you are located outside of the University Campus, you first have to create a VPN connection as explained by the ZDV in this article.
  1. Open a Shell
  2. Use
    gio mount smb://<username>@mogonsmb.zdv.uni-mainz.de/<username>

    to access your home directory.

  3. After you have submitted the command, you will be asked for the domain. Confirm the UNI-MAINZ.DE domain with Enter.
  4. Now you will be asked to enter the password for your ZDV account.

After this you should see the contents of the folder in your file manager, e.g. Dolphin

Access shares

gio mount smb://<username>@mogonsmb.zdv.uni-mainz.de/<share>

or

gio mount smb://<username>@mogon2smb.zdv.uni-mainz.de/<share>

e.g.:

gio mount smb://<username>@mogonsmb.zdv.uni-mainz.de/project
gio mount smb://<username>@mogon2smb.zdv.uni-mainz.de/scratch
gio mount smb://<username>@mogon2smb.zdv.uni-mainz.de/project

You can found the share under the following path:

/run/user/<number>/gvfs/smb-share:server=mogonsmb.zdv.uni-mainz.de,share=<username>,user=<username>

you can use tab completion once you are in the folder /run/user/.

Open in Terminal

Alternatively you can open the file manager of your OS, browse to the mounted share, right click on a folder and then on Open in Terminal.
