Sun NFS mount from OS/2 warp to Solaris


I'm using Solaris 10 and OS/2 warp. There is a share on OS/2 warp which I'm trying to mount on Solaris. I get the following error message

[root@Solaris /]$mount -F nfs -o rw\audio /AudioSCRAFT
nfs mount: no applicable versions of NFS supported

Any idea how I mount the share.

Thanks in advance

sure it is a NFS and not a samba share?

I have mounted it using auotfs

Its from OS/2 warp, I was told nfs share. I tried mounting it using autofs and it worked

mount -F autofs -o rw\audio /AudioSCRAFT

However, it does not show any data in it. I guess permissions need to be set on OS/2

Run showmount -e on the solaris 10 client.

It should display NFS server export list (if any).

As Peasant says:

showmount <ip address>

will tell you what shares that ip address is offering

The OS/2 filesystem might be a PC filesystem in which case you'll need:

mount -F pcfs ..........

on the mount command.

Also, the two nfs versions might be different so might need to specify on the command line:

mount -o vers=....................

NFS version might be 2,3 or 4.

Also, you could specify root access on the target:

mount -o rw,root...............

on the mount command line.

Some combination of the above ought to work.

The output of showmount is as follows.

[root@Solaris2 /]$showmount -e
export list for
d:\audio (everyone)

When I try and mount it via nfs following is the output

[root@Solaris2 /]$mount -F nfs -o rw /AudioSCRAFT
nfs mount: no applicable versions of NFS supported

I'm able to mount it via autofs, however it does not show any contents in the filesystem

[root@Solaris2 /]$mount -F autofs -o rw /AudioSCRAFT
[root@Solaris2 /]$cd /AudioSCRAFT
[root@Solaris2 /AudioSCRAFT]$df -h .
Filesystem             Size   Used  Available Capacity  Mounted on      0K     0K         0K     0%    /AudioSCRAFT
[root@Solaris2 /AudioSCRAFT]$ls -lrt
total 0
[root@Solaris2 /AudioSCRAFT]$

The remote share is not empty and has data

Thanks to all for your inputs. The issue is now resolved (after going through good old man page )

mount -F nfs -o vers=2,rw\audio  /AudioSCRAFT
