nfs mount between Slackware 11.0 and Windows Server 2003

I'm trying to mount a netwrok drive from my Linux Slackware 11.0 from a Windows 2003 server, installed on a PowerVault 745N from Dell

On my PowerVault, everything works fine, in the log, I can see that I was able to connect my linux station to it.

But the problem come from my Linux station. When I do the mount command, the result is this:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on "host"
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

When I look at the sysleg, I get these errors:
nfs_get_root: getatr error = 5
nfs_read_super: get root inode failed
nfs warning: mount version older than kernel

With the -o nfsvers=3, I get the same message, but with the message NFSv3 not supproted!

I've tried to install the nfs-utils but aigain I get the error on the libwrap libraray, saying that it is missing

Can someone help me!

Thank you

?????? Doesn't quite make sense.

You are trying to mount a share from a win 2003 machine on your Slack box? After you allow the windows box to share a folder/s
Use smbfs or cifs to mount it.
mount -t smbfs //machinename/share /home/user/somewhere
Or ssh or telnet into it.
Or open konqueror and enter smb:// in the address space.
Or use nautilus or lin neighborhood to find the samba share.

Or are you trying to see the linux share from the W2K3 box? You'll need to configure your smb.conf file.

Or did I miss the object of your post?

Hi teckk

thanks for the answer

What I'm trying to do, is to have a NAS that run on Windows Server 2003, and some linux and HP-UX stations connected to it.

The link Linux-HP-UX works fine with the NFS protocol

I know that samba will run fine, but my HP-UX station doesn't have it, and I tink I will have some trouble installing samba on it.

Since NFS is already installed on each system, I'm trying to make it works.

But right now, I'm thinking of installing samba on the HP-UX...
