To connect to the Morro Cloud Storage Gateway, mount the share over CIFS with the proper user credentials.

Mount CIFS share on the command line:


# mount.cifs //$hostname/$sharename $mountpoint -o user=$username

"$hostname" is the Gateway (CacheDrive) hostname or IP address.

"$sharename" is the name of the share.

"$mountpoint" is the directory that will be used to access the share.

"$username" is your user name.

The mount command will prompt for your password.  The username and password can also be given on the command line:

# USERNAME=$username PASSWORD=$password mount.cifs //$hostname/$sharename $mountpoint


To find the IP address of the CacheDrive, go to the "Device" page in the management UI and expand the section for the device.

Mount the share automatically on boot:

Add the following line to your /etc/fstab:

//$hostname/$sharename    $mountpoint    cifs    user=$username,password=$password    0    0

About your Morro Account and CacheDrive(Gateway)

Your Morro Gateway configuration info is available once you login to your Team Portal. Typically you land on the Team Portal as soon as you verify the Morro Account creation invite from your Admin and create your password. Here is an example of the Dashboard for a standard User:

Note that your Network Username is listed on the upper-right on the blue header bar. In the example below, the Network Username is "Jon". It's also know as your Morro User Account name.


You can review the Team Info on the Team Information box, including the Team name, Team Portal, Admins, and the user Groups you belong to.

There are also a list of Gateways in your team, as well as the shares.

Gateways are listed by Gateway name and the comment/description. You can directly connect to Gateways on the same network.
