Required for Installation in AFS

In order to use the Stanford Collaboration Tools Installer, you need to be a member of the -admins PTS group for the department or group AFS space where Drupal will be installed.

  1. To request a new department or group AFS disk space account, follow the directions for filling out the form at AFS Group Request (https://tools.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/group-request).
    1. Select "Yes" for the "Group Space CGI" option
    2. Include at least your SUNet ID in "Group Space Administrators".
    3. Note that the Organization Name you choose will be part of the URL for your site, so if possible, it is best to avoid underscores and hyphens in the Organization Name. (When URLs are written by hand it can be hard to distinguish an underscore from a hyphen and people also often have a hard time recalling which was used when entering a URL from memory.)
  2. For an existing department or group AFS disk space account, you need to be added to the -admins PTS group for that account.
    1. Find someone who is already a member of that -admins PTS group and ask them to add you.
      • One way you can find out who is already a member of yourorganizationname-admins is by using this command (using the unix command line)
        1. For groups:
          pts mem yourorganizationname-admins
        2. For departments:
          pts mem dept_yourorganizationname-admins
    2. The command that person will need to execute is (using the unix command line) is
      1. For groups:
        pts adduser -user yoursunetid -group yourorganizationname-admins
      2. For departments:
        pts adduser -user yoursunetid -group dept_yourorganizationname-admins
