LMU has three bigger network disk spaces in Dept (L:) disk under L:\med-groups\lmu. They are not backed up but are still more secure, faster and more handy than most external hard drives and recently removed data can be restored (see

  • L:\med-groups\lmu\ls1 and L:\med-groups\lmu\ls2 are for primary research data.
  • L:\med-groups\lmu\lmu_archive is a compressed file space that can be used to archive older inactive data.

User folders must be named by the university AD account (see Organizing data on LMU network drives).


If you log in from a centrally managed workstation at the Institute of Biotechnology the disks are mapped for you and you'll find them

in windows: Dept (L:) \med-groups\lmu. These disk spaces should be visible in all centrally managed Windows 10 computers in the university network but for some reasons this is not always working. In that case you will have to tell to the system where the disk is:

Windows 7:

Windows 10:

This is similar as in windows 7 but things are slightly in different places.

In principle the mapping in Mac and Linux should go by smb. In practice there has been some problems in getting connection to med-groups/lmu .



# Dept (L:)

# create mount point
mkdir -p /mnt/med-groups-lmu 

# mount med-groups/lmu
sudo mount -t cifs -o username=your_user_name_here,,iocharset=utf8,uid=1028227,file_mode=0600,dir_mode=0700,sec=ntlmssp,vers=2.1 // /mnt/med-groups/lmu

Linux on GE Deltavision Ultra PC:

sudo mount /mnt/med-groups-lmu
