/nfshomes

Automounted NFS file system that houses users' Nexus home directories.

Found on supported UNIX and MacOSX systems as (substituting $username with your UMIACS username)

 /nfshomes/$username

Please note that since NFS is insecure the scope is limited to which machines can mount this file system. If you need additional access you can mount this file system using CIFS from many operating systems (including Windows) by accessing it as (substituting $username with your UMIACS username)

 \\data.isilon.umiacs.umd.edu\ifs\umiacs\homes\$username

CIFS access is limited to machines in the domain so please use the VPN if you need access from outside UMIACS networks (including the wireless).

This file system has regular backups with our TSM service and has Snapshots for easy user restores.
