Access NFS partitions via DOSmerge on AIX 1.2

Access NFS partitions via DOSmerge on AIX 1.2

Post by Richard A Johns » Sat, 13 Oct 1990 09:55:19

I have a PS/2 model 80 running AIX 1.2 with DOSmerge installed.  I have found
that under DOSmerge I can do "dir" of directories which are NFS mounted on the
system, however I have read and write problems when I try to access those files.

I also see the same problem using AADU from a DOS system across the network.
Once again, I can *see* the files just fine, but I can't read or write them.

Has anyone seen this?  Is there a simple fix?



1. AIX 1.2 is dead (was X server for PS/2 XGA under AIX 1.2)

I have heard from my spies in IBM (comments invited to confirm or deny):

1. PS/2 AIX is dead (no more new versions, except for bug fixes).

2. AIX has not been certified for the PS/2 90 and 95.

3. AIX will never be certified to work on the model 90 and 95.

4. Not said to me, but a conclusion of (3) is no support for XGA.

5. The only way to run Unix on the model 90 and 95 and have IBM's
   blessing is to run SCO's Open Desktop, with which IBM have a licensing

6. Future Unix versions for IBM PS/2s may be SCO's ODT or something similar
   from a joint development between IBM and SCO.

2. COOL SITE !!!!!!!!!

3. NFS mounting from within program (AIX 1.2)

4. Scratchy sound with SB PCI128 (Ensoniq 1371) on VIA VT8367 and Athlon XP

5. AIX PS/2 1.2: running DOS Merge on an NFS filesystem

6. What flavors of UNIX available for Macintosh?

7. AIX 1.2, DOS-Merge, & > 32MB DOS Partition ??

8. "open() failed" problem when accessing SCSI scanner from Redhat 5.2

9. NFS 1.2 for IBM RT's running AIX 2.2.1

10. AIX 1.2 (PS/2) nfs mount & automount

11. AIX 3.1 restore program on AIX 1.2?
