Data - Server Access

FlowCore Data Server Access Instructions

To access FlowCore’s data server, log in to any Monash networked Windows computer using your staff authcate and navigate to the Shared (S:) drive. All of your team’s FCS data files and associated electronic assets should be available to you from there.

If you're trying to access the S: drive from a Mac, or from a Windows computer that is not on the Active Directory (AD), there is a bit more configuration necessary in order to connect. Please refer to the following instructions relevant to your perspective.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this procedure please consult a FlowCore staff member for assistance.

Windows XP/7 (Monash AD):

The S: drive should be automatically mapped when you log in with your staff authcate.

Windows XP/7 (Non-AD):

My Computer > Tools > Map Network Drive: (pick a free letter, e.g. S:)

Folder: \\ad.monash.edu\shared\R-MNHS-FlowCore\
