Overall System Status:
OpenAFS client is required for Mac systems to directly access the Dartmouth Research Data Storage system (RStor).
Once installed, the Mac user can authenticate to OpenAFS and then use the RStor space as a network share.
Select the appropriate installer for your version of OSX from the following download site. We have tested all of these installers and noted any issues. Mac-afsetup.zip is a collection of scripts for Mac (all versions 10.4+) to tune the configuration after the installer is finished, enable data transfer encryption, and create convenience shortcuts to your AFS volumes. It is highly recommended, but not required. It also contains tools to start and stop the AFS client manually.
Older versions, or occasionally newer versions, may be downloaded directly from OpenAFS.org
To obtain an account and storage allocation on RStor, see Accounts for Researchers (open to anyone at Dartmouth)
