Help: nfs and mount on linux

Post by Petros Falouts » Tue, 01 Oct 1996 04:00:00

        Hi all,

        We are having problems when mounting linux (ext2) paritions
        between similar linux machines. We get the message:
        "wrong type of fs or bad superblock on ...".

        We get the same message when trying to mount solaris partitions
        on linux machines.

        Strangely enough some of our linux and solaris disks
        are mounted without problems on linux machines. We haven't
        been able to figure what causes this ...selective behaviour
        of the mount problem.

        Thanks for any help,

1. /var/mail: to NFS mount or not to NFS mount?

... that is the question.

Assuming a homogenous Sun/Solaris environment, what are
people's opinions of NFS mounting /var/mail on workstations,
as opposed to using IMAP to read one's email.  Assume that
all workstations are on the same LAN.

How scalable is either solution?
