NFS & CIFS purpose Its different,

NFS - You mount file System accross the Unix- Platfrom Server as NFS mount point,

CIFS "Used to creat /map share folder from Unix- Windows) Using Samba (example)

>>I do not see NFS configuration nowadays.<<

Its becoz "Now days Orangation" Feels NFS Its not recommended due some Security issues"

Thx,
Johnson

Re: NFS and CIFS

Both NFS (client and server) and CIFS (client and server) are available and supported on every supported version of HP-UX. Both protocols are used extensively by HP-UX installations.

Hi,

well, it depends where you look :-)
In windows environment you will not see NFS mounts. It's UX specific.

V. Nyga - not really - NAS is basically NFS remarketed as something else... just wish I had come up with the remarketing of it, so that I could make Mega-$$$ off of the "already existing" .... :-)

Re: NFS and CIFS

Volkmar - that didn't sound right - "not really" wasn't appropriate. I'd change that to "you're right, but don't forget ..."

I didn't mean to sound corrective about your posting as it is correct, I meant only to expand on the comment a bit.

Please excuse the improperly formed/framed response.
