with this command you can check if you can see a nfs share on your freenas
dfshares <ip-addresss-freenas>

mount -F nfs <ip-address-freenas:/path /mountpoint

cd /net/<ip-address-freenas/

I am new to Solaris.. i am picking up my pace slowly Smilie
so bless my ignorance with your knowledge .

all my nfs services and rpc bind services are running.

It would be nice if you tell what all setup in need to do on solaris end.

cd /net/<mynasip>
its says it doesnot exists..

Thanks in advance Beta
