trying to use mount command

Im simply trying to use the mount command to map a shared drive from one unix box to another

mount /export/home

but complains that the command is "nfs mount: : RPC: Program not registered"

what can I do about this if anything

thanks in advance for responses

You must mount the file system as an nfs filesystem with the appropriate flags.

Also, you must insure that you have correctly exported the remote directory in a file similar to /etc/exports

You must insure that the proper network processes are running like the RPC daemon and port mapper.... etc.

On the system I'm trying to share I used the command:
share -F nfs -o -rw /export/home

this seemed to work OK.

I tried using mount -F nfs /export/home
on my other system but it still comes up with
RPC Program not Registered.

even if I try the command 'showmount' it responds with 'RPC Program not Registered'. So perhaps there is configuration issues here??

Your nfs server should have a program called rpcbind (older systems may call it portmap). Is rpcbind eveb running? On the nfs server you should be able to use the command "rpcinfo" and see a long list of stuff. Do you? The list should include entiries for mountd. If you have never mounted anything before from your nfs server, you may just need to turn on the nfs server daemons. If this used to work but it no longer does, your rpcbind may be out to lunch. You can try the warm start procedure on the man page, but you may need a reboot to bring it back.
