  • Click “OK” and then “Finished”.

To transfer files from the J Drive to the Heidelberg VM:

  • Click on the “Connect to J Drive.desktop” file on the desktop. This will start a script.
  • Input your CAEDM username and password when prompted​. You should now be connected to the J Drive in the command prompt. (You will see a bash prompt that looks like 'smb: \>')
    • Use “ls” to view the contents of the current folder.
    • Use “cd <folder>” to navigate to a directory (or “cd ..” to go back 1 directory)​ Folder names with spaces need to be enclosed in quotes. Example: cd My Documents —> cd “My Documents”
    • Use “help” for a list of all possible commands

  • To recursively upload a folder, type in the following commands, one at a time:
    • recurse
    • prompt
    • lcd /source/folder/path (For example: lcd /home/convert/tjs91)
