Mount Network Drive Using Windows CMD

28 Jan , 2015  

This is the command for mounting network drive :
NET USE [drive_letter] [path_to_network_drive] /PERSISTENCE:[YES/NO]

  • Replace [drive_letter] to the assigned drive letter, for example Z:
  • Replace [path_to_network_drive] with the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) path, for example \\file.sgnugraha.com\codes
  • Choose between YES or NO for persistence option. If you choose YES, then the mount point will be kept after you log out. If you choose NO, the network drive will be disconnected when you log out.

With this command you can improvise to mount network drive on your client windows machines. For example you can create a batch file called sharedfolder.bat which contains:
NET USE Z: \\file.sgnugraha.com\codes /PERSISTENCE:YES
Then you just need to create a Group Policy Object (GPO) which run this script during user log in process.

Install 32 bit Microsoft Office 2007 in 64 bit Linux

18 Jan , 2015  

Most of our computers today have 64 bit support capability and surely we want to utilize it to make use of those extra GB of RAM. Even with my deep love of beautiful Linux desktops, I can’t deny that I still need to use Microsoft Office. I’m already used to it, I know my way around it and there is no need for fear of document incompatibility when opening it in other computers (mostly MS. Windows of course).

This time I’m writing the step-by-step guide for installing 32 bit version of Microsoft Office in 64 bit Linux. For this guide, I’m using elementary OS luna which is based on Ubuntu Precise (12.04 LTS). Please feel free to adapt it to your favorite distro.
