Zeus protocol on Fedora?
I am a student at a university, and I noticed some Fedora computers in computer lab. No one uses them because the computers aren't configured to work properly with the network accounts. This school is addicted to Microsoft and gives little consideration to user rights. The IT team is, from what I can guess, not very Linux-knowledgeable, so they don't have anyone maintaining these Fedora computers.

I decided to use a Live CD to have a look at the fstab (/etc/fstab) on their computers to see why Fedora couldn't finish loading the /users and /usr/local mount points during boot up.

See the contents of the fstab.

What I noticed is that there seems to be a different protocol used than the NT domain allows (I'm assuming that the entire IT infrastructure runs on NT domain names). The protocol is "zeus", but I've never heard of it. I searched on Google for "zeus protocol" and it returns nothing related to Linux or network protocols that have been put to real use.

There is a research article that seems promising, but it's only a research article. The article PDF.

Does anyone know what this is?

You misread the fstab, zeus is the host that's exporting those volumes, the protocol is nfs.

Thank you for the reply. I wouldn't have realized that ever, given that I don't know the names of the computers on the network.
