how to mount Windows NFS share on solaris

Hi, How can i mount an NFS share on a solaris machine a filesystem ?

I have enabled nfs on a windows server and the shares has given read/write access to it to all the users. I would like to mount it on around 10 different solaris boxes with different versions of solaris.

Thanks in advance.

You can access it without explicitly mounting them using the automounter.

Simply use "/net/<nfs-server-name-or-ip>/<share-directory>"

Hi, I did not get you.

Currently i am able to mount the windows NFS share "share1" on one of the solaris box. I can see it in the df -k command as

10.10.10.11:/share1 13150912 56 13150856 1% /test1

while i do

#cd /test1
bash: cd: /test1" permission denied

the permission on test1 directory is
drwxrwxrwx 2 nobody nobody

This issue is resolved by giving the privilages to the system user "anonymous user" to the share.
Tx.
