Hey Mo,

You can use ssh to connect to the Galaxy machine. If you used cloudlaunch to 
create your instance, it should display an example connection string that will 
work from e.g. a linux/mac shell, something like: 'ssh -i cloudman_keypair.pem 
ubuntu@IP', after your instance launched. 

Once inside of the machine, you can do something like: 'sudo -iu galaxy', to 
switch to the galaxy user and then have a look at the mount points under /mnt/.


The cloudman_keypair.pem file is the key file that you (should have) downloaded 
the first time that you launched a cloudman instance, or when you manually 
generated a keypair. You can create additional keypairs in your aws console if 
you need to download a new one to use (you can probably delete the existing 
cloudman_keypair and have it regenerated automatically by cloudman, but I 
haven't tested this and I wouldn't recommend doing this if an instance is 
running). You'll need to use the correct .pem file for the keypair that you 
specified during launch of the instance. 

See 
http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/generating-a-keypair.html 
for Amazon's info on creating keypairs (especially if you are using e.g. 
Windows and putty: 
http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/putty.html).


Once you make the changes to the files locally, you can use the Cloudman Admin 
web UI to restart the Galaxy instance.


Let us know if you encounter any issues.



Thanks for using Galaxy,


Dan
