3. In the Server Address field, enter the path to the network drive you want to map. For example, if you want to connect to the cronus.uchicago.edu server, you will type in: smb://cronus.uchicago.edu and then click on the “+” icon just to the right of the Connect button. Then click on the Connect button.

4.   At the prompt for your login name, make sure that the radial button for Registered User is selected. You will type in ADLOCAL immediately followed by a backslash and your CNET ID, with no spaces. For example, if your CNET ID were johnsmith, you would type in ADLOCAL\johnsmith and for your password, you would type in your CNET password (the same one that you use for U of C email), as shown in the graphic below. You may optionally choose to save your password by clicking on the checkbox for Remember this password in my keychain. Finally, click on the OK button to mount the network drive.

5.   The mapped drive will now appear in the Finder. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have previously logged in to the server and saved your username and password, the first time you log in to the server now you will be prompted for your correct username and password. Be sure to use the prefix ADLOCAL\ with your CNET ID and also be sure to type in your correct CNET password (the same one you use for U of C email). If you would like your computer to save your new login credentials, be sure to put a checkmark in the checkbox for Remember this password in my keychain before clicking on the Connect button.
