Ok, firstly I'd like to say hello. I have recently decided to try out ubuntu. I installed 7.04 and had come trouble the first couple times but everything is ok and running smoothly now.
A few weeks ago I had setup myself a SOHO NAS, using www.openfiler.com
. It works great, I enabled the LDAP on the box, made some users and groups for security on my shares. I could connect to the SMB/CIFS share from window and MAC boxes, with the appropriate usernames and passwords of course. When I installed linux on my desktop now, I want to mount the share with NFS. I realize I could use the SMB share to mount it, but I would prefer to use NFS. I looked on the ubuntu wikis and all of that, and followed all of the guides to no avail. I have a few questions
1. If I have the share set to controlled access with my LDAP password, how do I type that in when mounting the NFS share with these instructions:
sudo mkdir /mnt/files
gksudo gedit /etc/fstab
Add something similar to below:
192.168.1.1:/path/to/shared/files /mnt/files nfs rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr 0 0
Test new configuration:
sudo mount /mnt/files
I see no place to input the username and password.
2. I tried typing what was above, but I just received this error:
mount: 192.168.0.10:/backup/public/mystuff failed, reason given by server: Permission denied
3. when putting the path into fstab, it's <hostip>:/path is the path the share path or the ACTUAL path on the server? (when I map the drive in windows XP, I use \\192.168.0.10\backup.public.mystuff however I know that the actual path in linux is ../backup/public/mystuff) if it is the actual path i might have to change it to /dev/hda0/backup/.... ?
**Edit added question 4**
4. on the Openfiler box web gui, theres also the option for Run Insecure and Root Access for the NFS share. I left them disabled for now. What do they do?
Thanks for any responses in advance.
