How to Connect to the College of Design Share on Files

Question

How do I connect to the AAA Share on files.uoregon.edu?

Solution

** If you are trying to connect from off campus, please launch and connect to the VPN first.  

From a Mac:

  • In the Finder, click Go, then click Connect to Server
  • In the Connect to Server box, type 'smb://files.uoregon.edu' (without the single quotes).
  • Enter your Duck ID user name and password (e.g. if your e-mail address is 'johndoe@uoregon.edu', your Duck ID user name is 'johndoe').
  • Click Connect.
  • In the next window, select the ‘aaa’ share and click OK.   
  • The aaa share should open in a new Finder window in your foreground.   It is organized into four sub-directories:  Departments, Institutes, Research, or Students.   Select the one where your destination folder resides.  
  • If you are working on a public computer, make sure to eject the share or restart the computer when you are done, so that the next person who sits at the computer cannot make changes to your folder.

From Windows:

  • Windows 7: Go to Start -> and type \\files.uoregon.edu in the search box, then hit Enter.
  • Windows 10: Go to Search and type in \\files.uoregon.edu.  A second option is to open Windows Explorer and type in \\files.uoregon.edu in the address bar.   
  • If you are prompted for a username and password, enter your DuckID credentials.
    • Please note, if this is a non-University owned computer and/or is not joined to the UO AD domain, you may need to put an ‘AD\’ in front of your DuckID, for instance ‘AD\yourduckid’ (minus the single quotes).  
    • Once connected, Windows Explorer should open.  Double click on the ‘aaa’ share.  
    • The aaa share is organized into four sub-directories:  Departments, Institutes, Research, or Students.   Select the directory where your destination folder resides.   
    • If you are working on a public computer, make sure to log out or restart when you are done, otherwise anyone who sits down at the computer can make changes to your folder. 

**Please Note:  Folder permissions are applied to all shared folders.  If you receive a permissions error please contact College of Design Technology Services at 541-346-6914
