  2. Create a local mount point on your machine for each drive you are wanting to mount.
    For example, if you are wanting to mount the U: drive, you could create a folder in you home directry called engrhome as the local mount point: mkdir engrhome.
  3. Then use the desired drive information from the "Drive Mapping Path Generator" section above for the remote mount point.
    sudo /sbin/mount.cifs <remote_mount_point> <local_mount_point> -o user=<my_engr_user_name>,domain=engr.colostate.edu,uid=<my_local_linux_username>,rw,sec=ntlmv2

    NOTE: Replace <my_engr_user_name> with your Engineering username and replace <my_local_linux_username> with the local user account on your machine.
