RH 6.2 + Solaris 2.6 x86 LILO Setup

RH 6.2 + Solaris 2.6 x86 LILO Setup

Post by Dale & Lora Marshal » Sun, 24 Dec 2000 13:03:59

Could someone please point me in the right direction.  I've installed
Solaris 2.6 x86 ona  second hard disk, and I would like LILO to
recognize it and boot the Solaris kernel.  What do I add to the
/etc/lilo.conf to get this capability?

Thanks in advance.

1. NFS between RH Linux 6.2 and Solaris 2.6


I'm trying to get a Red Hat Linux 6.2 box to mount an NFS share from a
Sun Solaris 2.6 box.

I've read from past posts that this is a non-trivial thing. There are
issues with both Linux' NFS implementation as well as with Solaris'
lovely adherence to NFS standards.

Here's what I've done/seen so far:

1. The NFS share on the Solaris box is mountable from other Solaris
boxes on the network.

2. The Linux box has the correct permissions on the Solaris box (I
think...other than /etc/hosts.allow, do I have to do anything else? In
desperation, I also put it in /etc/hosts.equiv).

3. I hear that the Linux NFS daemon mis-informs other boxes that it is
running version 3, so I tried to force it to say that it uses version 2
(whatever the heck that means).

4. When I try to mount the Solaris share, I get an error on the Linux
box stating that the mount failed because there are "too many mounted
filesystems" or something like that. Unfortunately, this seems to crash
NFS on the Solaris box, also. I will get the exact error message this
wekend when I can actually bring the Solaris box offline.

5. When I try to mount an NFS share from the Linux box to the Solaris
box I get an "RPC program not registered" error on the Solaris box.


Does anyone out there have a nice step-by-step "push here dummy"
procedure that I could use? Or does anyone have any ideas on what to do?
I'm mainly a Solaris type in my day job, so I'm somewhat more familiar
with its funky style of NFS.

Any and all suggestions are appreciated!
