mounting Sun file system to Linux

mounting Sun file system to Linux

Post by Yong Hua Ch » Sat, 13 May 1995 04:00:00



I am trying to mount a Sun file directory to my Linux system.
It does seem to be easy.  I keep on getting the error message
saying "reason given by server: Permission denied".  

Could anyone out there share your experiences with me ?

Thanks in Advance,
Yong Hua Chen

The SUN directory should be exported and your Linux box should
be 'honoured'. In Solaris 2.2 (and also in 2.3) the export is
controlled by the file /etc/dfs/sharetab. The exported items can
be 'unrestricted' (i.e. all hosts can mount it for read/write),
if there are no option parameters given, or your host (the Linux box)
should be explicitely mentioned.

example sharetab:

/opt   -   nfs   rw                        (every hosts can mount it)
/expo  -   nfs   rw=linux.box:other.hosts  (only the mentioned hosts can mount it)

See also man share and man sharetab on SUN. Needless to say, that 'mountd' and 'nfsd'
should be up and runnin on the SUN fileserver.

Hope this helps

If your using sunOS 4.1.x then you need to put an entry in
/etc/exports

a simple one like
/directory      -root=linuxipaddress

then you need to run exportfs like:
exportfs -a

Is there some way to mount a Sun directory without having root access?
