Please help...


Hi,

I tried to mount to a windows share drive from AIX...like what you did.

I need step by step instruction...when I install SFU, I had windows domain mapped to UNIX domain thru NIS, and there's a NFS Network comes up under My Network Places, that's all, I can't see any "nfs sharing" like you, did I do anything wrong? Please help me.

Thanks,
jess

so, on your PC, open a Microsoft Explorer window. Right-click on a given directory, choose "share this folder", you will see simultaneously a Microsoft Sharing and a NFS sharing part. Choose share this folder, give a folder name (let's say myfolder)
and in an AIX telnet session type
mkdir /remote
mount mypc_ip_address:/myfolder /remote

Then, if you "cd /remote" you will see your PC's files.

No, when I right click on the directory, there's Sharing… on the menu, when I choose it, a regular sharing properties setting dialog box comes up like before I install SFU, however, I notice when 1st time I click on it, a message box showing SFU running pop up briefly. That's all I get.

What I did on AIX is set a NIS domain name for that host and start NFS, and from the service for UNIX Admin on my local, I have the mapping set up, however, I can only do the simple mapping…

There's another annoying thing, after I install SFU on my PC, I keep getting a pop-up message box asking me to put in windows 2000 CD, guess some files are not compatible.

Anyway, I'm testing SFU35SEL_EN.exe on my PC with windows 2000, the AIX is 5.2, and eventually I need to install SFU on Windows NT platform. Do you think I should just go with samba, or it's doable to share Windows NT folder to AIX 5.2?

Thanks for your time and help, really appreciate it.
Jess

I guess that you missed one step when installing nfs.
Try installing it again, I guess that you installed the nfs client on your pc, and yo forgot installing also the nfs server. I installed the nfs server on my pc, and when I click sharing, I have two folders, standard sharing and nfs sharing.
And the nfs sharing is mounted on the AIX system by typing "mount mypc:/myfolder /tmp"

Thumbs up

You're really a genius!!

I didn't install the server, now I see the nfs share, I share it out with ANSI encoding and read-write root access permission, and I mount (use smith in AIX) the file system on AIX, but when I try to cd to that dir, the message said '0403-036 the specified directory is not valid', so I type command '/usr/local/bin/bash', then it gives message 'There is an input output error'.

What should I do now? Is this something to do with the login user id/password? The uid/password are different on my win 2000 and AIX, somehow I didn't set it up anywhere when I config NFS on both AIX and Windows.

By the way, I install everything in the NFS package on windows side like I install the server, it may not be necessary; I just try to make it work.

Thanks so much your help,
Jess

I think it's a very small problem on the Win2k part. Probably you should install the Service Pack4 and all the mandatory packages from the "microsoft update" buttons. I had that problem a couple of years ago and it disappeared suddenly when installing the new Windows systems.

I got sp 4 on my local machine...I'll have to allow anonymous access, then it works, anyway, I'm so glad it's working, thank you so much, couldn't make it without your help.

One more question, when I share out the folder, it shows share to ALL MACHINE, and I can't find a way to change it.

Thanks
Jess

er... I wanted to share it with all my AIX machines, so I didn't try to change that.
