Tru64 NFS mount

Hi guys,

I'm new to Tru64 and UNIX, please pardon my lack of knowledge and bear with me.

I'm looking to make a directory on a Tru64 cluster available as an NFS mount.

To do this in Solaris I would add the following line to /etc/dfs/dfstab:

share -F nfs -o rw /some/directory

How can I do the same thing in HP Tru64?

Thank you in anticipation.

Re: Tru64 NFS mount

Its very similar to single-node NFS setup. Its just that the clients use the cluster alias name to mount the directories. I think you can do this through 'sysman' utility.

Re: Tru64 NFS mount

There are many things to check before making exports.
The best way to do what you asked:
# sysman nfs
Then choose:
Configure system as an NFS server
and you will get menu based tool
In vino veritas, in VMS cluster

Re: Tru64 NFS mount

Yes it is similar to normal system only thing you have to do it give clsuter aliase name instead of members name.
If you have more than one cluster aliase then you will have to add entries in /etc/exports.aliases

Hope this help.
I am in this small bowl, I wane see the real world......

Re: Tru64 NFS mount

You need to add the directory entry to
/etc/exports file once you configure your
cluster as NFS server using sysman or setup:

For example:

To make /nfs_mnt directory available for NFS
clients to mount.

Add /nfs_mnt -root=0 to /etc/exports file.

Now Clients are ready to mount the directory
using cluster alias name:

mount cluster_alias:/nfs_mnt /client_mnt
