LINUX HPUX cross mounts

LINUX HPUX cross mounts


Is it possible to mount HP UX 10.20 HFS or vxfs on a RH linux 7.3 system through NFS and Linux ext3 on a HP UX 10.20 system.

I have both machines and want to do some R&D for my DRP to atleast show my CIO that I am working....:-) .

Re: LINUX HPUX cross mounts

It should be possible if your 10.20 is patched as far as it can be on the NFS front.

You are not going to do any harm by just trying it though.

The back end filesysetm on the HP-UX system does not matter.

I would not export /stand, which is a required HFS filesystem. Thats got the kernel and is a little to valuable to put on the network.

Yes it has to. I have mounted HP VXFS filesystems on Linux & alsoLinux to HP.
