NFS Mount Points

Hi
Solaris 10

On server A, there is a directory called data with 10 files. This data directory has a further 3 subdirectories, gl, pay, contract (for example)

On server B, I want to see the server A data directory

commands used:

on server A, share -F nfs -o ro -d "<description"> <directory>/data

on server B, mount -F nfs server A:<directory>/data /mnt/data

However, how do I restrict the mount on server B so that those who access server B, don't see the subdirectores gl, pay & contract but only see the 10 files ?
_________________

So that these mounts are available after a reboot, I should update the /etc/dfs/dfstab ?

Please advise

David

Share a different directory on the same volume with hardlinks to the 10 datafiles.

Things will then get out of step if the 10 data files are deleted and replaced as the unlink will only affect the first directory and not the 2nd, the 2nd will still hold a copy of the old data file (shared inode), so if you replace the files you would have to remake the links.

If the files are simply modified, then the changes will be seen immediately.

So an alternative would be to hold the real files in the 2nd directory and use symbolic links in the original.
