Re: mount linux filesystem on hpux 11.00


I guess you are using NFS to share data between Linux (server side) and hpux (client side).

On the server side (Linux) :

=> Make sure the directories are exported. Here is an example of /etc/exports :

/share *(ro,no_root_squash)

After edited /etc/exports, type exportfs -ua and exportfs -av to apply changes.

=> Make sure that the NFS server is started :

/etc/init.d/nfs start

You can have it automatically started at system boot :

chkconfig --level 2345 nfs on

On the client side, things are much simple :

mkdir /mountpoint
mount linux_hostname_or_ip:/share /mountpoint

You can put it in /etc/fstab :

linux_host_or_ip:/share /mountpoint nfs ro 0 0

Good luck.
