Linux & MS Sharepoint server. How to mount?


I work in an off-site lab and am the sub-net admin here. When I was running WinXP, I had set up my company's sharepoint server as a network place so it would autmatically log in. I then used scripts to gather all the databases, compact them and upload them to the sharepoint where our IT dept has a script to do tape backups every night. The timing was perfect. We closed up at 4pm, the compactor script ran at 4:30pm and when it was done it deleted a lock file that triggered the IT's tape script. The process takes hours which is why it runs on scripts after work.

One day, I was talking with the IT supervisor while she was imaging a hard drive and jokingly asked if I could put Linux on my company PC. She said, sure and when she saw my look of disbelief, she reiterated her approval and said, "if you can get it working."

Well, I got it working and I've re-written my scripts to do the nightly backup.

I have created a bash script to do the same thing except the automatic uploading because I can't figure out how to "put" a file up on a sharepoint server. Now, the compactor runs at 4:30 like before (and even runs faster with a tighter compression), but I can't upload till the next morning which means the tape backup is a day behind. This is not good because the db's are mission critical. In addition, the lab's network traffic is busy during the day, so this upload is eating up bandwidth needed for work.

I need to upload a large (1GB+) archive via a script with automatic login to a sharepoint server over the internet. The address of the server is in the format of: https://sp.mycompany.com/backups/TIF_lab/. Being able to mount it would be perfect because I could then delete the lock file to trigger the tape script.

Is there a package or method that would allow this?

I have been trying to figure out the same thing, rather unsuccessfuly. Sending files to sharepoint is not easy it seems, unless you can use the IE page or set it as a "my network places" which doesnt actualy map to a shared drive like a normal file share. :-(

I understand that there is a service called webdav that comes disabled by default with the Win2003 version of sharepoint, but many sysadmins won't enable it. The webdav service can be mounted from a *nix box as a file system. In my case, my IT dept refuses to enable the webdav service. They also don't have enough licenses available to issue me a vpn connection. So I guess I'm going to have to do it manually.

ok i re read your original post, now i understand a bit more.

if you can get them to setup ftp on the win2003 box thenyou can use a script to ftp the file up.
