Install davfs2. It's available in both the yum and apt-get package management systems.

You can now use the mount command to mount PO.DAAC Drive as a drive of the type davfs. For example:

mkdir /mnt/podaac_drive

sudo mount.davfs https://podaac-tools.jpl.nasa.gov/drive/files /mnt/podaac_drive

PO.DAAC Drive will now be available under the /mnt/podaac_drive path

Troubleshooting mount issues via Linux

Postby mgierach » Tue Jun 04, 2019 3:18 pm

If your mounted drive is not syncing, consider un-mounting and then re-mounting following "How to mount PO.DAAC Drive on your local computer via Linux".

Also, consider establishing mounts at desired levels of the archive (i.e. only for data that you expect to access and not the full archive).

Hi,

I was wondering if you could help with the following problem:

- When I try to mount the PO.DAAC drive following the instruction listed in this thread, I receive the following error:
mount.davfs: Mounting failed.
SSL handshake failed: SSL alert received: Error in protocol version


- I'm using version davfs2-1.4.7-8.el6

- The operating system of my computer is RHEL 6.3

Thanks for your help!
Matt

Good morning. I had the same issue with RHEL 6.3 when I tired to troubleshoot your issue. You may have to update the computer to a RHEL 7 version as I do not experience handshake issue in these versions.
